Ddtran46's 60p

Hi guys. I got a Ada 60p, a t5ho light fixture, and some aquasoil for my birthday today. I will be picking up a used eheim 2215 soon. I am not sure whether I want a rock scape or a scape with driftwoods. I have some petrified wood lying around and might be using it.

Here is a list of my equipments:
ADA 60p
Eheim 2215
Aquasoil Amazonia normal 9L
Oddysea 2x24watt t5ho
Single gauge co2 regulator w/24oz paintball tankA Diy paintball regulator
Ada thermomter
Ada drop checker
Powermen 13mm lily pipes(soon)

Here are some pictures of my tank:



Leak test:

Hi, scape 2 much better IMO =) It would be even better if you can find more "pointed" rocks

These scapes were just for fun..I don't think I will use these rocks. I want to get some seiryu stones for this tank...or some driftwoods.

Here are some pics of the eheim I just bought:



I will change the green tubing to some clear ones and will buy some lily pipes soon.

I think I might use scape 2 now if I cant find any nice rocks locally. I want to make this tank simple so maybe I will use hc, glosso and a little dwarf hairgrass.

Here is a picture of how my tank is looking now. I added a little more aquasoil to make the slope a little higher.



I am hoping the slope will stay like that after it is filled up..

Suggestions and critiques are welcome.

I'm liking the petrified wood rock look! Interesting shades of color.

The new layout looks good but I liked #1 better. Anyways, cool tools, play around a bit with placement. Show us some more options

The last (last picture) scape is the best out of all em. Stick with that and it'll be a winner.

Yeah. I think I will stick with the last one I did.

I just bought some power men lily pipes off of eBay so I should be expecting it in a few weeks. I might start planting whenever the pipes arrive. I want to make a perfect start.
