Joshism My back is sore enough working on my 72"X24"X18." I'm doing DSM with DHG. Don't know how your backs feel after planting every strand of grass. Can't imagine working on a 200+ gallon, unless it's with larger plants.

sadchevy There is always room for a bigger tank. That couch takes up the space of a 125g, it's got to go. LOL

Blackheart Some beautiful tanks! So jealous of you guys! I would love to have a 125 in our house but just don't have the room.

CamoCop Looking to upgrade tank size and curious what brand some of you have chosen for these larger tanks. Had leak issues on smaller tanks with some brands and want to avoid those when I step up.

holy crap...4 fluvals?? On a tank this big, i'd just go all out and build a sump. Nice tank though..clean water. looks like they are getting the job done.

What did you use for pipes on your Fluvals? I have a fluval 106 on my 12G that I was trying to get an acrylic tube set put on with some lily pipes, because the stock Fluval hoses are ugly imo.

The rescape looks a lot cleaner, I like the openness on the left side of the tank. Large rimless tanks look great.

Greggz It's only a five foot 120 Gallon, but all I have room for in the den.

Just recently went pressurized CO2. Plants have filled in more since this recent pic. Trying to find the right balance of plants and making a good home for my Rainbows.

And by the way, this site has been extremely helpful to me.

AGUILAR3 This tank looks amazing. Love the negative space you created on the right side of the tank...and finally, sand that actually looks good in a tank (IMHO of course)
