Does this mean I don't have to stalk, er subscribe to all those big tank journals? I don't remember seeing all of these nice big tanks though, this thread is nice, thanks for starting it!

My big tank is on a wall where the book cases and piano used to be long ago. The piano was reclaimed by its previous owners and the books are in a bedroom. It is a standard 180 gallon 6' by 2' by 2' tank, acrylic with a peninsula overflow going down to a 40 gallon sump.

Just took this photo this evening. Last week I uprooted all the stems and reorganized them. Pennywort, H. polysperma and what I think is Proserpinaca palustris has grown up over the ferns already.

Awesome tanks!!!!!! And a big WELCOME to all. I love the participation this is getting. I too stalked the big tank journals, that's where the idea came from to get them all in one place. Still love the journals and watching the progression.

I only have a 65 gallon (I love the fact that I now think 65 gallon is relatively small!), but I want a 120 or 180 gallon sometime in the future. In a few years, maybe...

In the meantime, can I make a request? It's hard to get a sense of scale in photos with just the tank. Can we see some of these tanks with people next to them? That would be great...

Changed the name of the thread. I would also like this to include anything 100 gallons or more, because there are some nice tall tanks that fit in also.


A little update on mine and hopefully showing some scale compared to the room it's in.
