I'm starting a ~220G

I just got the hardscaping in and got the water chemistry right. The plants start going in next week.

I suppose I should get some pictures up, but I'm worried about getting all excited and then having the tank collapse. I'd prefer getting photos up of a thriving tank.

That 260G looks awesome! I'm humbled.

IMO large tanks just lack the structure that you can see in smaller tanks, a lot of time they look spread out, not planted well. There is just too much going on and lacks a strong focal point with bunches of plants just tossed all over because there is space over there and something just has to go there so I'll stick this plant there. Granted some people do a great job with large tanks, but most that I have seen fall short compared to a nicely planted 65/90/120gallon tanks.
My favorite size is 65gal, great height and good depth. A lot of the 150/180 tanks are just too long and don't scape well IMO. Depth and height are the most important dimensions in planted tanks, again IMO.

Thanks...
I'm still new to planted aquaria and I'm still learning.

There is a LFS here that gives me the excitement of a giant planted tank. I think theirs is somewhere between 800-900 gal, standing at 100cm tall and more than 300cm long. Their tank is a behemoth, so are the plants inside. It is a huge lush healthy jungle in there with lots of big and overgrown species. How about if I take a picture sometime if they allow me to and share it here....

I'm agree that scaping a huge tank is a challange and most of the time it would be difficult to get it into a nice focus position. Perhaps the excitement comes from the size itself? You get extra plants, extra swimming space, extra depth, etc.

I have to agree with dissident, 6' long and 1.5' wide are hard to scape. I am hoping to follow in shalu's footsteps, growing as many plant species as I can. Go jungle look GO!!!

AshDavid at Aquaria Central is currently planning a 10,000 gallon tank which I believe will be planted. In Japan of all places! (giving Mr. Amano a run for the money) That's the biggest I have heard of AFAIK.
