aXio's Do!aqua Mini-M and ADA Mini-S

I got a hold of some nice tanks locally from drink_soy_sauce.(<--- Thank you!!)

First one I will be setting up will be the Do!aqua. I ordered myself some CAL Aqua Labs lily pipes from GLA. Still waiting on my filter to come in at work. Not fully sure if I want to swap the Finnex clip on light for some LEDs on a dimmer and do a lower light tank or scrap the wood and go for a more traditional iwagumi tank.

Current Equipment List:

- Do!aqua Mini-M
- Finnex 26watt Light
- CAL Aqua Labs Pipes
- Fluval 106 (<-- Probably)
- ADA Aquasoil Amazonia Powder Type.
- Pfertz

No stocking ideas yet. Photos...sorry for the horrible glare.






Also decided to pick up some real tools from GLA =)

I picked up some wood stone to start messing around with the scape. I ditched the wood branches for now, but I may try to incorporate them some how later on. Here is my first shot at it.

Great job on the hardscape! Any idea which plants you'll be adding?

Thank you. Not entirely sure yet on the plants. I haven't decided if I want a low tech tank or high tech. Either way I want the plants to stay short because the rock work isn't very tall and will get covered easily. I was thinking about possibly adding more rock to make it higher.

I'm glad everyone is liking it so far. The substrate is ADA Aquasoil Amazonia Powder Type.

I would say, expose the rocks a bit more. Anyways the arrangement is looking cool. Kind of intricate and interesting. What plants are you gonna put in it ?
Lily pipes are so damn sexy!
I would like to know your reviews on finnex lighting.

Still waiting for my bulb for the light to come in. Once I get some use out of it I will let you know =) The LED nightlight is nice. And it seems pretty well built for a 20-30$ light.
