well i have posted these pic before...
officially i have two planted tank...
75 gallon Amazon Biotope


10 gallon Dwarf Puffer Biotope


unofficially i have a 3rd planted tank...10 gallon "breeder tank" is planted, but is more of a clipping tank, with no rhyme or reason and definitely no theme of aquascaping intended... i could take and post a pic tonight if anyone is interested, but there is not much to show...

lol success it up to 8 pages!!!! everyones tanks are looking better and better. i love your driftwood docrakck and it will look amazing after the plants fill in around it. just picture the driftwood sticking out between jungles of plants... would be cool. and wobbles..... wow. i love how simple u have made your 80 gal. is that glosso covering the ground? have u thought about switching out your regular l.repens(i think thats what it is n the far right side of the plants) for l. repens "rubin" i think that splash of red would really set the tank off. and jchillen... i love how your tank is to large to photogragh all in one shot lol. how much light are u running these days? as for my funktastic camera... its a cannon powershot A60 2mp. sucks royally lol. only hasa 3X normal zoom and 7.5 optical. but it does take some nice macro shots so i wont complain lol. this isnt a planted tank but i want to share it anyways.... my newest baby cichlids its has moss so i think it counts lol.

1 week old

i want to see your clippings tank. have u tried taking your pictures at night with all the lights off but the tanks? it makes it look much nicer and we can see more what u see. a flash really has a way of killing the colour.

Nice tanks everyone!

wobbles: I love that 180g! Do you have any closeups? I'd love to see some.

I'll have to get an updated picture of my Malawi cichlid tank...it has plants too. And amazingly the only ones being eaten are the Hygro polysperma. Its a miracle.

All of my fish love nibbling on my Hygro polysperma. Thank goodness the stuff grows like a weed. I also find it keeps my fish from eating my other plants. It must be real tasty, I'll have to try a leaf some time.

The First is my 15 gallon, in which plants grow so fast i can't keep ontop of them!
lol

Second picture is of my challenged 44 gallon. I cant seem to get anything to flourish in there. (except fish!) I have almost NO algae though, so i guess something is right. I'm thinking i may have to increase lighting (its on for 8 hours at best)

Thanks man!

The glosso is almost covering the ground now. I do have some "rubin" kicking about. I might try some in there. I have 5 red lotus lilies on the far right, but they're very small. I think they will look great big and bushy!

This is what the 75 gallon looked like until last week




This is after the recaping job, got tired of the jungle look and pulled the fastest growers aka Hygros



and here is my 55, its mostly crypts now, with a centerpiece of mixed mattograssee and cambomba

Is that a gold fish with guppys? You don't see that combination very often. I guess my question is; how do you keep your goldfish from destroying your tank? Carp a known for their ability to devastate vegetation and goldfish, from what I've heard, are no exception.

By the way, cool tanks.

Yeah its considered a no no in the aquarium world but its been working fine. The Goldfish is pretty mellow, I also have a Male betta in the tank and no problems with any of the fish attacking. I don't recommend this setup unless you plan on watching for a long time for agression.

The Goldfish doesn't seem to care about the plants at all. I've seen him swim up to them and look but never eat or pull any up.

OK, I'll update too.... the tanks on this thread are completely amazing! And it's really cool to know that alot of the plants in these tanks came from other member's tanks, as well as a lot of the info and ideas.

Here's my 55, which will undergo another major change soon as I am moving it next weekend!


One of my favorite pics of the tank so far:


Limnophila aromatica, Myriophyllum mattogrossense, tropic sunset and lone strand of Rotala rotundifolia:
