    Here's a client's 450 gal tank for his office.
    Has automated push button water changes to 50%, you do not have to leave the chair even:welldone:

    6 top of the line Ehiems.
    Will use about 6 plant species, mostly, some Drawf Hygro or Staurogyne sp, and mostly hairgrass type belem. Low light and 1000 Green neons and Amano and cherry shrimp. Maybe CRS's.

    Tank is 8ftx3ft x 30 inches front to back.
    Light is about 1.9w/gal but will run a bit lower.
    About 40-50 micromol tops.

    That's the trouble about a nice set up this large, you can't just trip the guy and run off with his tank... :silly:

    Seriously though that tank is my new dream tank, the manzanita is amazing, the whole set up is just stunning. Subscribed and waiting for more pics!
