My 75 gallon

I thought I'd share a pic of my tank. Keep in mind I'm not a photographer. Specs are:
75 gallon
filtration:fluval 404 and 304
CO2: pressurized with DIY reactor
lighting: 2x54 T5HO ( one Giesemann Midday and one Aquaflora )
ferts: standard EI
fauna: black skirt, serpae, von rio and cardinal tetras, and a few oto's
flora: java ferns, L cuba, L brasiliensis, P stellata, low grow hygro, and a few other assorted stems

Any suggestions are always welcome!

I took that pic on the day I posted it and they're already past that now. They're up to the water and starting to bend over some.

Well if they've reached the surface, then I suppose it's a perfect tank...good job.

quick question...how long gid it take to grow your narrow leaf like that...? or did you buy it full size and arrange it like it is?
