180 gallon planted display

Ive finished this tank....finally finding Lileopsis spp for the foreground today at a lfs. Im adding more fish, but the plant list is done. This is my first venture into planted tanks after being in the hobby for 25 years. I absolutely love it thus far. Here are some updated photos just after a pruning this afternoon. Full tank shot and then left to right:

Pressurized CO2 system with pH controller
Eco-complete gravel
2 Magnum HOT filters
706W PC lighting 6500K

Looks like a new tank. With those specs should get the plants growing well soon.

Those foreground plants... Lileopsis spp? You need to separate them into smaller bunches of 2-3 and plant them that way. The way you've done it will more than likely cause the inner plants to suffocate and die. Other than that, I like the way the tank looks.
