WOW That's a large tank! I like it a lot. How long have you had it running? Are you injecting CO2? What are you using for substrait? How much light do you have over it? Ok, I'm done with my 101 questions, lol. I think you may have the larges planted tank on here... Welcome to the forum
Edit: It looks like you've got two CO2 reactors and a tank of CO2 in the third pic... yes?

Yes, and no....

Yes-Two Co2 reactors, but they're not in the picture. Those two white tubes are UV. Onyx sand and onyx gravel. 3 250w MH. 1 MH with timed-out flourescents for a crepuscular period. Lots of growth, even from the Blyxa j. B. aubertii will be planted rightside-background behind the B. japonica.

Wow, I wish I had that much tankage! hahaha.... How long have you had it running? Where do you have it located? Definately doesn't look like a living room...

wow, thats looks like a lot of complacated plummbing. Something to hide all the equipment in wood look good. Personally, I like the "naked look", gives people a chance to see all the equipment needed to run a monster like that. Most people think that only reef tanks need lots of equipment like that. I'll bet youll get a couple saying, "is that fresh water, or salt water?" lol

Nice. I'm also curious: how long has it been running and how long has the gravel been sloped like that? I love that effect, feels like a streambed. But I wonder how long it will remain so steep . . .

slope

The substrate skeleton is onyx gravel which gives strength to the slope. It is reinforced with deeper gravel in areas of higher slope. Onyx sand is the primary growing medium. The tank has been in development since December of 2005.

Why the blue background? Also, I am willing to bet that the big rock was a nightmare to put in there.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
