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......|

|Nick00Merlin||@Hemp111 looking good! Were you able to get your lights dialed in? And can you list some of what you have planted?|

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...

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.

|Kathyy||Well I finally rescaped my tank after 30 months of thinking about what to do next. Went from this wonderful overgrown jungle to something that might allow ground covers to survive as epiphytes are against the back of the tank, no more stems in back.|
