Our 75 gallon

Here is our simple layout for our 75 gallon. We bought it used and there were tons of huge plastic plants that came with it. I opted to take them out so that our fish have more space to swim.

It currently houses 2 fish - Valentine (our big fat Ryukin mutt) and Elton Jonh (our timid Tomasaba). Both fish came with the tank.

2 weeks from now we will be moving Booger, our tiger Ranchu, from the QT into this tank.

Thanks ladies. I will be planting a couple of anubias nana barteri and nana petite, maybe some crypt lucens and christmas moss to make it more natural looking.

You think the moss and crypt can survive these guys?

It really depends on the fish. My fish don't bother live plants at all but other do have some trouble. I think anubias of any kind is definitely safe. It's got thick fibrous leaves. The moss is what I'd question the most bit it's definitely worth a try!

Also, I wanted to say, your fish are beautiful! And I love the tank :heart

Thanks for the compliments, these fish are indeed gorgeous. So I went ahead and raided my betta tank, transfered some species of anubias, a java fern, a couple of crypts and a dab of christmas moss. So far so good, they nibbled on the java fern but they started spitting it so I guess they did not like it.

I am just curious if these plants would survive Booger, once he comes in from the QT tank. He likes nibbling on the plastic plants I placed in the QT.

Here are some images of the plants. I gave them a bleach dip plus kept them in a bowl for 3 days prior to transplanting. Our betta is pissed because I took half his hiding spots :). I need to get bigger anubias to have some sort of wall.
