my new 75g

I just scole this whole baby for $180 drop off Seller was nice enough to drop it off.

Need some idea how to scape this tank yes another discus tank.
I keep a couple plant tank but nothing NICE, need a show tank.

How do people keep hills? hills i build always fall back down or be move by filter/fish.

This 75 is going to be Dirt cap with Sand not sure if I want black or white/tin sand yet.

Sweeet! I thought I got a good deal when I got a 55 S&S for free with a fluval 304 and stand, the tank is in close to perfect shape but no eheims. Had to drive an hour to pick it up, you had yours delivered pretty sweet deal.

I have never made a hill in my tank but i have heard that if you use the plastic trim that you would use around a garden and burry it it acts as a good foundation and will help prevent your sub from falling down.

Sweet dude. Your going to LOVE your 75G (If not, ill take it ;D). my 75G was my first planted tank. I Love it because its big enough to do just about EVERYTHING in a single tank . Of course, thats still not enough for me, so now ive got two 20L's :O
Haha. As for hills, personally i dont really have hills. What i do is waves. Dont know why, its just what ive always done (Did it in the 75G. Starts with ~1" of substrate on the right, and then on the left theres 5" or so). Works great and you dont have to worry about it running off anywhere.
