75G – Work in Progress

April 22nd, 2008

I haven’t posted a picture on my 75G tank in about 2 months, so I decided that it was time, despite still being a work in progress. I suppose that my tanks have suffered a little bit from the nice weather outside, as I’ve been more focused on preparing the garden outdoors, than working on the aquariums inside.

75G - Work in Progress

The Eleocharis sp. ‘Japan’ is starting to fill in the foreground. The right side of the tank has some Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata ‘Cuba’ beginning to grow, as well as, some Rotala verticillaris that I’m hoping will provide a nice vibrant green in the back corner. There’s still something about this scape that I’m not entirely pleased with, something about the right side, but I haven’t taken the time to really move things around — largely because the Nannochromis nudiceps have dug out a cave on that side that I don’t want to disturb. If anyone has any comments, critiques, or suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

    Wasn’t this layout originally a “no stem” layout? What’s the moss growing on the branches?

    Blaise, you’re right that originally I was going to go no stem, but then I drank the stem-koolaid. There’s still a fair amount on non-stems in there tho. The moss is Taiwan moss.

    Liking it. Also like how you added the picture enlarger to the photos.

  4. guitarfish Says:

    Thanks Rob! Yeah, I like the picture enlarger, as well — for full tank shots at least. It’ll still only be available for select pictures.
