Re did the 75 gal

Due to massive growth thanks to help of some members here, esp. Jchillin, I have had to try my hand at aquascaping. Did some rearranging. First pic is the before, second is the after.

Bill the roots have grown past the pots, they have holes in the bottom and have rooted extremely well in the egg crate. I hope that is what they are supposed to do LOL. Thanks everyone, once you turn me into an addict, I go crazy.

very nice! i think as far as aquascaping goes, it would look even better if all of the same type of plants were clumped together instead of spread around. in nature, this is how plants grow, so it makes it look more natural.
