My overgrown & neglected 75


Yeah, been busy and uninspired. Maybe next summer I will order some new plants and 'scape this puppy again.

This tank could look really nice with some time and effort.
You dont neccessarily have to buy new plants, just take the time to reaarange and prune and youll be surprised

I really like the overgrown/wild look- you could just rearrange some to make it more balanced.

as a general rule taller plant in the back and shorter plants in the front gives a decent sense of depth and is more appeasing to the eye, without pruning just arrange plants this way and see if it isn't more appealing to you

my 75 gallon journal is planted this way. i just threw everything in waiting for my driftwood to arrive. looks decent but scaping comes soon after !
