Hey guys,
Will fill in more details as I get around to it on the flora and fauna, but thought I would at least get the pictures up first.

I recently consolidate my various tanks into one large community tank, in search of more flexibility with the type of fish I could keep, and more importantly for lower maintenance. This profile 1000 (72 gallon) replaces a 20g, 12g, a 5g and what was going to be another 14g.

It's been set up for about 2 months now at this point and plants are finally growing in. Here's some pics!

Thanks for the comments guys! Hoping to propagate a little more moss onto the wood so it doesn't look quite so bare :eek:
