Beautiful tank!

Care to explain some of the details? Plants, equipment...etc?

Would really help me out in designing my own tank.

Up dated picture of my 72 bow front

Just an updated picture of that tank. running a mixture of eco complete and black sand, dosing E.I style 260 watts of pc lighting. co2 of course. running a wet dry filter. with one siphon overflow and one megaflow over flow as back up.

Nice tank! what's floating in the 8.99 bag? How does the wet/dry affect your CO2 injection? And don't sell yourself short...your tank is something special, and so are you. You're good enough, smart enough...and gosh darnit, people like you (and your tank).

That's a female german blue ram (I hope). I got her for my one male. I have been having to refill a 20lb tank about every 3 months with the Megaflow overflow and wet dry ph is set at 6.8 . I recently added a siphon overflow on the back of the tank and have tuned so that only water come out with none of the normal air bubbles that the megaflow makes. I'm hoping that this causes less off gassing. My next step is making the wet dry portion of the filter smaller. To further reduce co2 loss
