Does this mean I don't have to stalk, er subscribe to all those big tank journals? I don't remember seeing all of these nice big tanks though, this thread is nice, thanks for starting it!

My big tank is on a wall where the book cases and piano used to be long ago. The piano was reclaimed by its previous owners and the books are in a bedroom. It is a standard 180 gallon 6' by 2' by 2' tank, acrylic with a peninsula overflow going down to a 40 gallon sump.

Just took this photo this evening. Last week I uprooted all the stems and reorganized them. Pennywort, H. polysperma and what I think is Proserpinaca palustris has grown up over the ferns already.

Awesome tanks!!!!!! And a big WELCOME to all. I love the participation this is getting. I too stalked the big tank journals, that's where the idea came from to get them all in one place. Still love the journals and watching the progression.

I only have a 65 gallon (I love the fact that I now think 65 gallon is relatively small!), but I want a 120 or 180 gallon sometime in the future. In a few years, maybe...

In the meantime, can I make a request? It's hard to get a sense of scale in photos with just the tank. Can we see some of these tanks with people next to them? That would be great...

The 6 Foot Plus Club

Changed the name of the thread. I would also like this to include anything 100 gallons or more, because there are some nice tall tanks that fit in also.


A little update on mine and hopefully showing some scale compared to the room it's in.
