This is my newest tank. A (US) 75g tank, natural colored gravel with a river type plumbing system driven by two Aquaclear 301 powerhead. The heater is a 300W Rena Cal Toplight. External filter is a Fluval 404. Light is on a timer, two 40W flourescent tubes. Haven't put on the background yet. The stand is cherry with maple inside.
