Ok when I was buying plants from Gordon I was talking to him about a crazy
Idea I had in which instead of creating a slope in the 12 to take 2 and stack them one behind the other and use background plants on the back one and foreground in the front one and have rocks or something cover the split between the 2 tanks ... Yes I know crazy...
nope not crazy at all! er...unless my ideas a bit crazy too
exactly the build i was contemplating. I have two on my table right now like that (empty) and as long as the glass is clean it would hard to see the panes of glass in between. i posted a pic 3 pages back of it set up like that. having a piecs of wood (or more) that actually went tank to tank as one piece would really make it look like one. you could also do it so you could keep say fish in one and shrimp in another. or two different types of CRS or whatever. OK maybe this idea is a little crazy haha.
i only see violet and poppy glass in the adg shop... can u link which your talking about?
ya your right its not on there. nor is it on the site i got mine from (canada)
there's one on ADA's site thats similar, the nano ones. the jet i believe has a small taper at the end to concentrate/increase the flow. box says violet glass, model is JP-1 13mm. cost more than the tank though.....
I see some using the 36" Marineland LED here. But, it seems this won't allow you any space to hook an HOB filter (unless you bend the extensions which I won't be doing cause I WILL break it)?
Let me know what you think of the evo light. This will be my first aquarium since I was 10...
I use the ML double bright 36 (without bending extentions) and have 2 Aqua Clear 30 HOBs installed without issue. I cut out the rear corners of the 1/4" plexiglass cover and use the openings (just in front of the filters) for feeding and dosing. It works great as the food and ferts are immediately dispersed using filter flow. The fish gang up by the filter when it is feeding time and chase after the floating pellets like crazy.
I visited a friend and her tank had HC with no co2. She did mention it grows very very slowly though. I also use excel in my shrimp tank
I have done the same also but this is a long time ago when I first started the hobby... I was able to gro the hc in extremely high lighting lots of water changes and a good amount of fish in the tank but I missed one week water change and algae grew really quick and took over and it was hard to recover from that state so I gave up
