  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I've seen community tanks done with smaller to medium-sized tanks, but how would a large tank like this workout? I'm looking for a multitude of different species at all different water heights, I'm also not afraid of some larger and smaller fish. Not really any more specifications, just...
