I love the 18" width compared to my old 20g's, much more room and I can actually make the tank look deep rather than narrow.

Thanks Josh, you are more than welcome to shoot me a PM if you are interested in any plants that I have, I know that the first few weeks of this tank would be iffy but once it gets going, the plants will flourish like my past scapes! About the hardscape, I will probably want to buy some from www.manzanita.com
, I love the driftwood that Mike (Momotaro) has in this 75g, hopefully I can get some pieces that are similar.

Most of my past planted tank scapes were beautiful without any hardscape, i'm sure this one will look great as well. The thing that sucks is waiting to watch everything grow in again
but it would be fun to see the transition of the plants growing everyweek or what not!
