Default "Rooted" My 75 gallon semi amazon/natural scape

So here we go,

This tank is located at my new clinic at 8500 warden ave. The clinic is called Form & Function and we have chiros, physios, naturopaths, nutritionists, laser therapy, acupuncture, sports rehab and foot specialist for orthotics. This tank is located inside a brick vinear wall at the reception area. come visit and use your insurance money peeps =P

After breaking my first 75 gallon trying to move the finished scape, this one is finally done. This is a continuation of "the rockscape"

The central focal point is obviously the large tree stump on the right. I have used local wood to create the root system.

Here are some stats on the hardware

75 gallon rounded corner tank
pressurized co2 at 2bubbles per second
ADA aquasoil amazonia 2 from Aquainspiration.com
Azoo slow releasing ferts at the bottom layer
geo sand fro the beach layout
Local wood/rocks
lighting: 6x54 watt 10k t5ho 10 hours a day with midday blast
eheim pro 2, ext heater, atomizer and uv sterilizer.


Here are some pics of the scaping

Nice work with the hardscape - really like the stump. Are you going to go with the traditional needle Leaf java fern on the top, or stick with the moss?

Very nice. The high light should keep the needle leaf compact and the philipine fern should be just the right size.

I was wondering why you were leaving all that prime planting space open... the Altums explain that!

I got it from aquamagic. But I wouldnt order from them now, its too cold out and they dont put tracking on their shipments so last shipment was just about dead due to sitting inmy mailbox fro hours. aqua hk sends it by tracking num, you should try them.. both are ebay based.
