Default Pics from my 75 gallon

I finally feel good enough about this tank to show some pictures. Let me know what you think!

Unfortunately, when it came time to change the bulbs on this tank a few months ago, I only had 10,000K bulbs so the lighting is kind of funny, but the plants grow just fine and the frogs seem fine.

here are some details:
Tank-75 gallons
lighting- 2x60w compact flourescents
watering- the orchids get watered diffently depending on the species. Otherwise i mist in the mourning. The moss holds water so i don't have to actually water the plants ever.
plants-
several fern sps
phal. amabalis
several oncidium alliance orchids
unknown paph sps (accidentaly through tag away)
guzmania sp
virisea sps.
ficus pumilia
tillandsia sp.
alocasia 'african mask'
hoya sp.
miniature palm sps.
'baby tears'
brassevillia 'Starbrek'
dendrobium sp.

frogs: 0.0.3 d. leucomealus

Mathew,

Your tank looks really nice. Please post some more pictures.

I took the liberty to post your first picture directly into the thread.

thanks for all the comments.
Planting the tank was done over a period of aproximately a month and a half, but only four days were used for planting. on those four days i spent an hour or two on it, making sure that evey plant was well attatched and in the "perfect" posision.

the base is a false bottom with about 2 inches of coco fiber, covered with fern moss.

The background is your standard great stuff background, also completely covered in fern moss

thanks for posting the picture directly into the discusion. I had a "brain fart" and couldn't remember how to do that. But rest be assured i remembered how almost instantly after i hit "submit"

The tank has been set up for more or less five months. It had been going for a year before but i completely took it apart and started over as i found that just a layer of gravel was not sutable for drainage. (the high amount of water caused mold and killed almost everything, except my orchids :? and people say orchids are delicate!

I'll post some more pictures tomorrow or later tonight.

all i did was lay the piece of moss against the great stuf background and stick a bunch of really small nails through the moss and into the background. It holds the moss well and you don't even see the nails. I am not sure if this type of moss grows in the uk...

I think the larger one on the right is a pteris sps, but am not sure because i have bought multiple of that sps and each one had a different name. As for the rest i don't know. They are from a greenhouse/flourist chain we have here called Bachmans. I don't know if it exists out of mn.
