150 gal low light crypt+fern+anubias jungle

Here is video of my tank.

Specs: 5 x 2 x 2 ft
Light: 2 x 96W PC
Substrate: Soilmaster select charcoal
CO2: 20# tank with venturi style reactor, keeps ph around 7ph
Plants: Ferns, crypts, anubias

This tank is meant for "very low maintenance". It can maintain itself without ferts and water changes for few months.

That is one cool angelfish! I've never seen a gold one with a black dorsal fin.

Tank looks great too!

Looks awesome. For some reason I've never been able to grow crypts that look that nice.
