Going From 55 To 75

    I finally got my 55 where I liked it and then decided to upgrade to a 75 so I had more room for plants. As I was taking out the ornaments I was struck with how pretty the fish looked swimming amongst/under the Amazon sword.

    Here's the 55. 51180c70d5fb5cbe9bca7681069f836d.jpg

    And here's the beginnings of the 75. Any ideas? Should I get rid of any of the ornaments? (I dislike the rock on the left but my husband chose that one...) b5c9673a72a9b4521c1ae431b905078b.jpg

    I think if you replicate the exact same aquascape from the 55g but obviously adding more plants since it's a larger footprint it'll look perfect. :)

    Thanks. I'm discouraged because the 75 does not look nearly as good. But neither did the 55 for a while. All the plants bent funny in the few days they were laying sideways in bowls waiting to be replanted. 69b02bd26c94203478a98756709f4411.jpg

    Not great. After trying DIY CO2 I had an outbreak of BBA. So tonight I just pulled all the cabomba out. But thanks for resurrecting this thread so I could see that my tank actually looks good moderately/lightly planted. The cabomba just took over. I need to learn about some medium to slow growing plants because I seriously have to cut 1-2” a week off the cabomba. And it was coated with BBA anyway.
