ADA 60-H Steal! ヾ(⌒∇⌒)ノ Scaped! ヽ( ・ω・)ノ♪ Set up! Ready for plants.

Picked up an ADA 60-H (32 gallons) and stand for $130 ($300 new)!

Here it is:



Got 2 packages! A big one and one says ADA on it.



Lastly little teaser of the rocks I'm using for the scape:



Should be getting a more stuff next week. I have my scape ready to go.

Small update!

Getting my light hung right now. Going to put in an order for bulbs also. I'll have some photos tonight of the hanging fixture (hopefully).

Used from a salt water forum. This tank is drilled in the back.

Yeah I'm pretty lucky! The car ride back sucked though. I was in the back seat with enough room for my shoulders. Couldn't even put the seat belt on.

Only decided on my hardscape so far. I have an idea of fauna/flora, but undecided right now.

Conduit set up and light hung!

Looks like the big box was the 4x24w tek light! Packaging sucked though. The instructions were literally about to come out of the box when I got it.

Finished scaping!

Finished the scape late tonight with the help of my lovely girlfriend. Then I fed her lots of freshly made and steamed chinese veggie buns!

Getting the first rock in was the hardest part. It weighs probably 35-40 ish lbs. I'm really light about 115 lbs. Trying to get it into a deep tank was really hard even with the help of my gf.



Second rock in! A lot easier, did this one by myself.



Front view of the rocks:



Filled with aquasoil!

Mid level shot:



Standing looking down angle:



There you have it! Receiving stuff in the mail next week. Hopefully I'll have this planted whenever I get the rest of my stuff. Still not 100% on my flora/fauna.

Yes! 100%. I asked him what the price was, and I was ready to pay 200-250, but got a text back saying 130.

Shhh...

Good deal on the tank, I was watching that setup sit for the longest time. My personal opinion is the rock is too big for the tank.

I find it funny that the lady is doing the heavy lifting while you're behind the camera. Girls + rocks + glass tanks = no way
