The moss I grow in the front is called Peacock moss. I put a layer of it on rocks and then use a hair net and stretch it over and wind it tight in the back. It then grows out.

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.

fishwife 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.

Thanks for the response.

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.
