My first shot at aquascaping

I've been keeping planted tanks for about a year now, At first I was just happy to get the plants to grow. With all the great advice and help from this board, I finally got the growing part going we'll and decided to try my hand at creating an aquascape of some sort. Tell me what yall think.

75G Planted,Pressurized CO2, ADA ,TEK T-5 Lighting (6X54W)
55G Planted, Shrimp only (Mix),P.CO2, eco/moon sand, 55WX2 AHS.

Looking good bro

About the only thing I can say that would improve it would be to fill-up that right side a bit more... seems a little sparce. A nice grouiping of balanese would add a lot to the look.

Geez, that's pretty good for a first try. Most first planted tanks that I have seen are very sparsely planted with very little thought as to what it will look like in 6 months. Either that, or they turn out like my first try with 2 batches of over $100 in plants ruined by BGA.
Keep up the good work! You are probably getting the itch to set up a second tank to be able to try your hand at another layout. I say go with it.

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.
