new to forum, here are my tanks...

Hi all, just started an acct with this forum so here is my hello...

started almost a year and half ago in hobby with first tank, the norm, neon gravel, overstocked tank with aggression problems, blah blah...
here is that tank..

same tank about 8 mo later, after the plant bug bit me, and before I decided to tear down cause I need a bigger tank to feed my new addiction...

this is my baby 75 gallon, pressurized, t-5 and PC....
hardscape

this is orginally filled in w plants

this is how it looked a couple weeks ago, since the sagritta has been pulled as it was gettin too tall, and some other plants on the left, however have pretty big order in to refill bare spot
and this is my new nano scape which I also have plants on order for...

Really nice scapes...those are a couple of amazing looking discus. Best part is looking at the quotes on the dry erase board in the background. I particularly liked the Hunter Thompson "doomed generation" quote lol.

Beautiful planted tanks. Very happy-looking fish. Just set up my first planted tank in years, small, 29 gallon, with first use of CO2. Hey wish me luck.
