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)

Nick00Merlin I now feel better about posting a picture of my tank. While it is far from done, and is in major need of a proper light, it still is looking nice! This is the 125H Gallon, 5ft long 2ft high, 18in in depth tank. There is about 21 different species of plants and 70 inches of fish (none of the fish are full sized yet so in reality there is more like 35-40 inches of fish). There is about 70lbs of Fluorite substrate, Fluval Fx5, 300W heater, a DIY Co2 and DIY skimmer. I am not 100% sure on what I am going to do for light, but I do plan on making a canopy eventually.

Hemp111 Still working on the settings for the lights. I just put this together on Saturday Between the tank and the refugium there are over 300 plants, i'll see if i can find the list. I can't remember all of them off of the top of my head, this is my first planted tank so really learning about them all......
11-09-2015 06:17 PM
Nick00Merlin @Hemp111 looking good! Were you able to get your lights dialed in? And can you list some of what you have planted?
11-09-2015 05:36 PM
180 gallon

Just set this one up... Let me know what you think.

Nick00Merlin There are so many awesome tanks in here I almost don't want to add mine... I have a 125H Gallon that is mid setup. I will post the picture of the first day it had water added. Currently I have added substrate and wood, but it is still cloudy and so I will wait and edit this post to add a second shot after the water has cleared and I am have had a chance to clean it up a little.

If you wish to you can check out the journal tht I created, it has a lot more pictures even one of the current mess...

catchthecarp Here's my 100G nothing fancy low tech tank. I put this tank together around Xmas last year, my first planted tank. My low light beginner plants are doing OK, they're all still alive, green and have grown a bit since I put them in. I have hard water and the diatoms that go with it. I want to try my hand with different plant species so I'm moving to injected CO2 this weekend. Doing a lot of "studying" here while waiting for the gear to arrive.
