...I realized I am quickly forgetting what plants are in what tanks and I am sick stuck in bed so here we go...

First special thanks to those I have gotten plants or inverts from- Chikorita, plantbrain, n00dl3, Kannachan13, gordonrichards, johnny313, Kathyy, chad320, somewhatshocked, frrok, DaPlantMan, raven_wilde, mgamer20o0, LilGreenPuffer, 150EH, mordalphus, cruzersoul, StrungOut, QShirmp...

All tanks are low light and the 75gal is getting root tabs...they are my first planted tanks..Pretty much all the plants/wood (the kuhli and pygmy too) in the small tanks are ones that spilled over from the 75gal...the camera phone pictures are not great so I'll work on that.

i love your 75 gal scape, really cool. It will look awesome when it fills out more too!

Thanks matty! The 75gal has been my main focus. All of the other tanks have plants/wood that were not working in the 75gal, so they were not planned at all...except for the 10gal which was planned for the poso snails (who eat most plants)...
