    I found a pic of a ten gallon planted tank I had a few years ago. The tank is no longer running. I could never keep planted tanks looking nice, too much pruning necessary. This pic was taking when the tank was at it's best.

    The tank looked great. Try a 75 gallon tank before complaining about a 10.;D

    What do you have for a substrate in your 75?

    Aquariumplants.com's original substrate. I have had it for about 3 years without it breaking down like other ones.

    I can see you burning out on the 90.;)

    Awsome tanks both of you. I almost laughed inside hearing you say you got burned out on a 90gal because you never hear that in these forums, lol. But I hate prunning things outside of my house I cant imagine doing it underwater and trying to keep everything looking proportional...not too big...not too small, I'm getting exhausted thinking about it.

    But both of those tanks look amazing.

    Thank you!

    I learned the hard way bigger is not always better. Now I just have a 29 gallon FW community and a 40 gallon reef. They are both low maintenance and the reef is becoming more automated all the time.

    Underwater yard work is a pretty good analogy :).
