75 Gallon Tidy Jungle

Hey guys, this is the start of my continous journal of my new aquarium. I'm upgrading from a Fluval Roma 200 which is 44 UK gallon/52 US gallon tank to a Juwel Rio 300 which is 76 UK gallon/92 US gallon.

Like my other tank this will be a planted tank. I was previously planning to be quite strict with my plant selection but I've had a change of heart. I'm now planning to buy lots of different plants, see what I like and what I can grow and go from there.

I have a whole tank full of cryptocorynes, amazon swords, wood and some substrate which will be moving into the new tank. So far I've only bought some new rocks.

For anyone that's wondering this is Dragon Stone (Ohko Stone) which is a stunning clay based rock with lots of little holes. It doesn't affect your water chemistry but you should take time to clean out the holes and excess clay on the surface. You'll be surprised how much of it is actually clay and not solid rock. Online this rock is usually around £3-4 per kg but I picked up loads of it for £25 at Woodcote Garden Nurseries in Wallington (UK) - good little shop.

I will be posting updates of the development of the tank, so please tell me what your thoughts are and let's have some fun!

N.B. This journal will be picture heavy!

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
