100% Real Tank

I am of the belief that a 100% real tank creates a better ecosystem for many reasons. That is why every tank I create is stocked with 100% real items. No polyresin, plastic, cement, etc. Thought, this is the first time I have used driftwood. This aquarium is a 75 gallon with:

The first picture is only with the equipment and substrate. It also has my previous filter in it, before I noticed it was leaking and replaced it with the one listed above.

The second picture is after I have added the plants and livestock. As you can see at the front, I have the moss in a breeder divider and have replaced the faulty filter. I was waiting on the driftwood to finish curing.

The third picture is after the driftwood has fully cured with the moss attached. I used Flourish Glue to attach the moss to the driftwood.

As we do not have good water for aquariums, I pieced together a water filter from SpectraPure.
