Love all the tanks.

Here is a shot of my 75g, I would call it Medium tech since I do dose a little bit, but not running CO2 on it

Sadly, this will only be like this for about a month as I am moving and having to take it down to do so. But will be re-doing it as a dirt tank right after

Reading this thread, high tech just seems unnecessary. After a lot of deliberation (months), I've decided to go low tech. Having a carpet just isn't worth the trouble to me...

You can have a carpet of bigger plants like chain sword.

Wow, after looking at the last 3 pages, I am thinking twice about my new high tech tank I will setup in a few months is going to be 84x24x24. The tanks posted here look great.
