Go get a big pile of rocks too Al. And chuck some sand down on the carpet. Then we'll have a better idea
I hope it will be special mate. Not happy with any of those layout. I think its partly the supporting wood underneath.I cant believe the size of that wood, judging by you other tanks this is going to be pretty special, your a brave man taking on a tank that size im nervous about upgrading to an 80l, most importantly though come on let us all into the secret.... how do you get around your misses ? If mine walked in and saw all that wood on the floor im pretty sure id up in a box lol
Lol..... its hit it off big time these press ups and planks. I did a few tricep dips whilst looking at the mess in the photos lolThis is my theory, Al's missus had said no then Al got stressed and started doing side planks and push ups which charmed her and he got the green light.
Too much light etc???
Ive had higher light species in my previous set up which was super low tech and hardly ever had a water change.

But plants such as crypts ferns mosses a fair few carpet plants some stems and echinodorus species all do really well.
Very well worth it in the long run if your looking for a nice easy less input kind of tank and something you can leave to do its thing for a long time.
Cheers dean im liking number 2 aswell. If I get some petrified wood added in I think it will be good.amazing wood, I like 2 actually were a bit less going on but hard to say without seeing it in tank lol good luck deciding mate
