AS other have said I LOVE the "OLD SCHOOL BEAUTY" of your tank!!!! Your Angels are STUNNING TOO!!!! HUGE and HEALTHY!!!!! Do the ever Spawn in the tank, SORRY if you posted about it already, but I have been up for 30+ hours, so I was just looking at the pics before I go crash!!!
I as SUBSCRIBED 4SURE so I can go back and Read the entire thread though!!! I JUST WISH my house wasn't Pier and Beam so I could have a tank bigger than 75g!!!! I could put floor jacks under the house where a large (+75g) tank would sit, but the HVAC ducting runs under the house and is rigid ducting and we can't get to where we need to put the jacks without A LOT of digging under the ducting in less than 16" of total clearance to start with. Or Cut a new access passage way in the front closet, and the wife isn't to keen on doing that!!!! So for now I am working with 40B! and living threw people like YOU!!!! SO THANK YOU!!!!
KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK!!!

|Seetide||Outstanding! That is my kind of tank, I really like the jungleish untamed look more myself. My first planted 75 is following a layout like yours.|

|exv152||Thanks, the lights are LEDs by BML (build my led) dutch xb series. I'm running them at about 80-85%.|

Sorry for the delayed reply, I should check my tank journals more often. Here are some shots with my cellphone.

|touch of sky||Very beautiful. Your angels are amazing. Could you possibly post a full tank shot? I can only imagine how gorgeous it is!|

Thanks for the compliments. I decided to add the apex just to make things a lot more stable, especially the co2 since i can see the daily pH reports and make small tweeks to get it where i want it to be. But I also like the option of checking on my tank from anywhere, work, on the road, on vacation etc. I've had the apex now since last summer and I still find myself checking on the tank daily, several times throughout the day. I've also got a webcam setup. The other feature i really like is the alarm emails. Mine are setup for the heater/temp, which gives me piece of mind. I also got the autofeeder setup, which i like because i can feed the fish and watch them on the webcam if i'm away from home for an extended time, and i can ensure the fish are actually eating.
As far as the filters go, I got one on either end flowing towards the middle of the tank, and another in the middle/back shooting flow towards the front. I also switched to a large DIY co2 reactor, fed by an inline atomic diffuser before it. The BMLs are my second favorite thing next to the apex. The dutch spectrum really add a lot not just to the plants but in terms of the appearance of the fish. LEDs really make the fish colors pop.

I just found this thread after messaging you about this setup. As the years go but our tanks evolve! Isn't it a wonderful thing?
Wow, you went x2 bml's and an Apex! That's high tech. I'm looking to do the same thing but first need to figure out a filtration/flow/co2 distribution issue in my tank. See I've got x2 2217's, and I'm wondering how yours are positioned with the addition of a third? Sounded like you using inline atomizers which are probably a lot less restrictive than using big Reactors build.
What are your thoughts on the Apex? Does it make things any easier for you. I've been reading up on it a lot and ready to make a purchase here soon.
Love the tank man. Keep up the great work!

Some update pics, since it's been awhile. Some new things I've done - I restarted the tank last summer. Added approximately 9-10 bags of ADA Amazonia (9L), added 2x BML XB series Dutch LEDs, an apex controller, and am now running 3x eheim 2217's. Still have the same fish...thanks for looking

|tylergvolk||Are you injecting co2 inline from each side of the tank? You must don't have much flow with an additional power head... I'm curious as to how much co2 is injected. Bps. Do you like the ph controller?|
