My 2 75's. Too much?

Been working on this for a couple months now. What do ya think? And i know the TV is kinda high. We have a 2 year old that wouldn't leave it alone so we had to raise it. I am also working on matching stands.

Can't replace the TV. It's the living room. But my end goal is 2 180 gallons. One saltwater, one planted discus. That's a long ways away. I also asked the wife about making that entire wall a fish tank. It was a no go lol. And thanks for the compliments. I have only been at this for a couple months. Just taking my time and learning.

Sorry I missed this. The tank on the left is planted. It has 4 Kaluhi Loaches, 4 Lemon Tetras, 3 Rosetip Tetras, 8 Denison's Barbs, 2 SAE's, 2 Bolivian Rams, 1 angelfish, 2 rubber lip plecos and ghost shrimp.

The one on the right is 3 platties, 8 various mollies, 2 Gold Gourami's, a dojo loach and a common pleco. Thats the "kids" tank. It's all fake plants and ornaments except for a java moss rock.

That entire wall is 20 1/2 feet long. I would love to do a amazon themed river. I already have it pictured in my head. It would be just over 440 gallons. But my wife would never let me do it lol.
20x18x24.
Make one end elevated and let gravity run the water. Put a drain at one end into a nice sump system underneath and run the water pump up and out at the other end. The fish would then feel like they were in a real flowing stream. Wishful dreaming though lol. And the floor would support it since it's on concrete slab.

That would be nothing short of amazing. I don't think I've ever even read about that being done.

I really like that. I love the stand on the right! Love the chunky rustic look.
