This will be the start of my Planted 75 Gallon Aquarium. I hope to learn much more through this aquarium.
I will update this topic post with new information all the time as the tank progresses. You can find the progression information in the other posts as the topic goes on...
There will be no pictures this time, but I put up the picture warning in case I forget.
Here are some information about the setup:

My current planned plants are:
Tank is cycling, it is very cloudy due to my stupid idea to dose PROPER pH 7.0.
The driftwood in there is growing fungus... Any reason to why this is? I have suction cups on the bottom of the tank, and dental floss tying the wood down to the suction cups.
I brush the fungus off every now and then.
