    Hello burr,

    do you still have Pantanal in one of your tanks? How ist it doing? And did you test Ammannia/Nesae in one of your tanks?

    Greetings
    Sebastian

    Hi Barr,

    Finally I found out that where should I start with my new tank. Please kindly allow me to copy some idea of yours.

    Cheers!

    For anyone not following on TPT, a couple of months ago this tank sprung a leak! The bottom seal blew out

    Here it is in progress

    Long story short, I would up going with a new 75 gallon in its place. Three days later it was up and running. I put the plants back in just like they came out

    About a week later

    Been a few iterations since then, starting to get a feel for the new layout

    Here's the latest. Think this is the basic layout Im going with as far as species and where they're at. Gotta work on shaping the groups, several things need to fatten up, etc etc

    Honestly Im tickled pink to be working with a smaller tank. Its so much easier to reach everything.

    Will start a new journal here pretty soon...

    Shame about the leak, such a nightmare.
    Looks good though. Buce on the moss wall was a nice touch.

    Never had much luck with A gracillis but I havent tried it in a couple of years. Actually have some A crassicaulis coming from Vin should be here in a couple of days. We'll see how that goes

    Pantanal does fine for the most part. It likes high everything. Current ones in the farm tank

    Thanks. Turns out it was blessing in disguise because Im loving the smaller tank

    Buces are probably going back whenever I get the "horizon" mapped out. They just stick in place, very easy to move/remove

    Hey Burr,

    The 75 looks great already. I like the moss walls and was thinking about using something like that for my other tanks with annoying backgrounds. Sometimes Ill google "nbat aquarium" and look for ideas. On some of them you will see lobelia or maybe anubias planted somehow rite on the walls :eek:. Is that how you had some buce ? I didnt catch that. Also, I know you have some of your tanks with blackened out sides/back. Do you use paint to do that or some kind of cover ?
