This 75g Tank is a MarineLand Majesty model, my 2nd tank, and my first non-makeshift tank. It has gone through so many things, good and bad, and this forum really helped shape this tank to what it is today, and what it will be in the future. I've had an diatom takeover, black beard algae takeover, Ich issues, unhealthy plants, but with the help of this forum and everyone in here, many new plants were added, problems fixed, and so much more :).

This tank is around 2 years old, almost 3, It's birthday is before christmas.

Congrats to Sgooosh with your amazing and colorful beautifully scaped tank. If I were a fish, I would be very happy living there. Well deserved win!
Tying for second place are @connorlindeman with his very nice 40 gallon breeder tank and @ChasingFish with their 40 gallon superbly aquascaped tank. Well done guys.
