max h A lot of nice tanks in the post. Here's mine, it's an old Oceanic 110g that's a five footer. The first picture is from the beginning of the month after getting everything transferred over. The other picture is from today, I didn't realize how much the plants had grown in a couple of weeks.

Cucumber Club Member This is my first planted tank and first tank since I was about ten. I picked up a used 125g and cleaned it up. I found a couple of pieces of driftwood at some local falls and used some Ohko stone. I recently gained an interest in houseplants and that led me to aquatics. The fish are just a bonus!

I'm using a 525gph canister filter, 300W heater and am using a 2' 96w T5 light I already had. I will be looking at adding more light.

sadchevy Seems it's time to bring this thread back to the top. I've been seeing more large tanks showing up in the threads lately. I'll have to take some new pictures of mine here soon. I'm currently working on setting up a 12 foot long display that consists of 2-75g and a 150g tall tank. I'm looking at ways to combine the tanks into one 300 gallon tank. Lots of ideas bouncing around in my head on how to do it but nothing that has stuck just yet.
Hopefully it will look like this when done.

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.
