This looks very, very nice. I love how it just looks like a giant field with a giant school of tetras swimming around. I bet it looks even better in person.

This tank looks beautiful. I had a similar idea for my next tank. Currently have none. Can't wait to get started! Your tank is inspiring!

I will update soon. I had a large amount of green neons die due to age as they are wild cought and live about two years. I really tried to get more this year but had very little luck. Last week I managed to get the last 30 pcs of the season shipped to me. So now I have about 65 green neons instead of the 101 I used to have . If everyone knows where I can get more please LMK.

I just bought a 140 gal, still in the unpacking process. Do you think the ADA substrate is worth the money? I have been going back and forth on what I need to buy.

Depends on what you want to growand your budget. I used 7 9L bags on this tanks and I know that is crazy but I really wanted a tall slope. I think that on the SCAPE forum some one calculated the price of ADA aquasoil equals the price of Eco flourite or any other substrate when you compare price per pound. That being said Aquasoil has been proven as a great substrate. There are many alternatives like mineralized soil, kitty litter, oil dry, turface, Shultz aquatic soil.

Actually check out green leaf aquariums. Orlando has a sale on tanks and substrate. I was looking and it is a pretty good deal. Right now I'm looking at getting the 90-P size tank. They're AZOO substrate is suppose to be just as good, if not better than ADA Aqua soil as it releases no ammonia and it shouldn't be as messy.

I have also heard good things about Azoo substrate and plenty LFS carry it here. But around here its $4 cheaper than ADA so Ill stick to ADA for now.
