80 Gallon Bowfront

Hey, I posted abou t this tank on my local hobbiest site, figured I'd share the build with you. I bought it used, and it leaked when I bought it, so I spent many hours resealing the tank and completely rebuilding the stand. Its now been running for 2 months.

Light: Deep Blue Solar Flare DX, 2 2x24inch T5HO
Substrait: ADA Amazonia
CO2: DIY 20oz Paintball tank
Filter: Fluval Canester

Didiplis diandra
Ludwigia palustris
Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini'
Fissidens fontanus
Hygrophila difformis
Rotala wallichii
Lilaeopsis novae-zelandiae
Plus some random ludwigia and rotala I've collected

Neon, Black Phantom, Rummynose, Ember, Bloodfin Tetras
Cherry, Ghost, Amano Shrimp
Nerite Snails

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Might be timed update pictures showing their growth. :-). I didn't know they made an 80 gallon bowfront. That's a unique size.

You do look like you're off to a great start I'm curious to see how it's grown in.
