I'm planning on turning this 6 footer into a planted, but will take much time.
I am working on a 120 gallon planted, but it's a 4 footer, but just added water (mistake as people say I should of planted before adding water). Lesson learned.

To the OP, THANK YOU!
I inquired years ago about starting a separate sub-forum for larger tanks, since most of the scapes you see on here are for smaller tanks. Larger tanks just pose different challenges for aquascaping, lighting, and filtration.
My tank's only 5 feet long (100 gallon), so I cant be a member of the 6-foot club. Still, I'm getting some great ideas here. Thanks to everyone for sharing.

I've been reading up on the use of the Dorso standpipe with internal overflows. When done right, a sump is not so scary after all. It's the external siphon overflows that I don't like. Not too crazy about the side return though...If that is indeed the 180 that's drilled on the side.
BTW, you would think a tank this size would have dual overflows.

^Nice tank PhysicsDude!^
Here's some pics I found of my tanks over time.
When it was 135 AC tank with overflow skimmer and sump in stand.10 years ago aprox.?
180g from about 3 years ago.Dual mega overflows(drilled) with sump in basement.

However, a sump is a great idea, so...there you go. I am not partial to the bottom-drain overflow design, but there are plenty who use it.

My LFS has a 180g for sale ($300) that I wouldn't mind picking up. The only drawback is the overflow. Can I somehow use the overflow without the use of a sump?
btw, Just noticed what looks like a drilled hole on one of the 2 tanks.(center of pic) Am I seeing things?

|sadchevy||Bringing this back up as I notice some new large tanks being setup. Great looking tanks everyone. Keep showing the possibilities.|

Absolutely NOT high tech. It's the lowest of the low.
Plants are a long list, and it does change at times, check out my journal in my sig

I'll be able to join this club soon! I recently got a 150g that I'll be setting up in the coming months, once I move things around and make space for it.
How do you guys light these huge tanks though? Mine came with 3 small (24" maybe?) 2-bulb t8 fixtures and I have a 48" Sat+ LED I'll be tossing on there. I can't imagine that'll be enough light for that 30" height on the 150g, even for just low tech like I'd like to do.

I wanted to thank everyone for sharing there photos.
I think that reef tanks have met there match. If some of those tanks were in my house I doubt I would ever leave. Some of those tanks are just unbelievable. Those photos will keep me motivated for a long time.

Wow! Nice tanks in here. Congrats to everyone with their awesome tanks. Here is my little cooperation to the club.
