40 breeder high tech

I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I have been in the hobby for most my life but for the past 15 years its been mostly reef tanks. Here is my setup. Comment what you think.

Have you thought about removing the large branch of DW in the top back, and using it as a separate pipes (with the left branchy end as roots in the substrate) on the left end? Just an idea.

Otherwise I love it.

That's a great idea. I am going to be breaking down this tank in the next month. Just bought a 64 gallon aquamaxx rimless tank.

Wow, those plants look healthy (:

Are the dimensions on your new tank 120-45-45 (the same as an ADA 120-P) they are really nice tanks to scape with so you will be left with regrets.

I love this tank! Looks absolutely beautiful! Can I ask what light you're using? Getting amazing reds out of your AR (or maybe it's a ludwigia...).

Nice plant growth. Is the substrate intentionally with aquasoil on the left side over sand?

Aqueon 120 gallon community (planted)
ADA 120p - 65 gallon community (planted)
Eclipse system II tall - 30 gallon - mixed community (non planted)
AGA 20 gallon - lake Tanganyika shell dwellers (semi planted)
6.6 gallon nano planted red cherry shrimp (planted)

Love your scape. Great looking tank. What kind of powerhead is that?

I also love your organization underneath. Those shelves on the sides are genius.
