Reals 65 Tall: Angelic Jungle Shire

65 Gallon tall (30" x 24" x 20") won at a fish auction with a last $1 put into 50/50 raffle. It sat for 1 year in an attic until bought our house, then setup for 2 years as an unnatural tank. Have a 29G Biocube I bought for saltwater which I loved but WAAAY to expensive and time consuming to maintain so I converted that to planted. Addiction pursued.

MGOPM capped with 2 x 20lb bags of Eco-Complete

3 pieces of Manzanita, Malaysian, Mopani driftwood.

Aquaclear 70 + Aquaclear 50

Who cares?

I have a VERY nicely sized Wheeping Moss portion (3 Golfballs was an understatement) that I will be using to form Moss trees/canopy.

I have a relatively large order placed with GordonRichards (This dude is amazing). It is Jungle Val heavy consisting of Greens, Reds, Dark Reds to align the back fully. Some Tiger Lotus, Coffee Anubia, and will likely pull some plants from 29G.

Livestock: All I know for 100% certainty is I will have 4 Pinoy Phillipine Blue Angels locally bred. THESE ARE AMAZING!

I have googled them and found nothing similar, but I got these at the fish auction as well. Currently in my daughters tank right now but will be moved once tank is fully cycled. Trying to find a school of 20+ smaller species of [insert here] but want to ensure they school tightly. I am always good for a catfish or two and Bristlenose Plecos. Any suggestions on catfish, schooling fish would be appreciated. I am lucky and have pretty good privately owned and some chains LFS around me (6 total within 20 minutes)

Enough are pics.

I like it! Though, I think the brick behind the tank is distracting. A background would be great and help the wood to pop.
