My new 75 gallon

This tank is a replacement for the 60 gallon that was my first tank. I really like the size of this tank versus the 60 gallon, the extra six inches of width makes a world of difference!

A lot of work has gone in to it in just a week.

Stats are:
Standard 75 gallon tank
2x48W T5HO Hagen Glo fixture
Marineland C-360 canister filter
Small Petco Powerhead
10 lbs. CO2 tank w/ Milwuakee regulator through a Rhinox 5k diffuser
Eco-Complete substrate (160 lbs. or so)
Malaysian driftwood

Plant list:
Hygrophilia augustofolia
Hygrophilia corymbosa 'compact'
Giant hairgrass
Crypt wendtii 'green'
Needle leaf java fern
Houttuynia cordata
Glosso
Blyxa Japonica
Hygrophilia Roraima (I think)
Taiwan Moss
Two julidochromis ornatus
Some oto's
Bunch of khuli loaches
Pair of Unknown kilifish

cool start! can you get a better pic of your killi? also you are aware that those cichlids are a hard water fish that will fight if not a breeding pair and will most likely attack other fish that you may introduce after them?

either way im subscribed

The juli's came out of a shell dweller tank I had set up. There was a big dominant female juli who kicked these two out of the rockpile and kept them cornered at the top of the tank. They were going to die like that and the only other tank I had was my 60 planted. I threw them in and hoped for the best. That was three months ago and they're doing great. Way more peaceful than my kribs too.
