Hey guys, I recently visited San Francisco and decided to pick up a Do!Aqua 60-F but kinda regret not getting the ADA instead...oh well same tank, maybe next time I visit again I'll get an ADA.
Here is what I have in the setup.
Light - Odyssea T5 4x24w (currently only using 2x24w)
Filter - Ehiem 2232
Co2 - Aquatek dual guage with solenoid connected to 20oz paintball
Diffuser - ADA style from ebay
Bubble counter - Aquatek bubble counter (I have a Mr. Aqua bubble counter that connectes to the solenoid but since the regulator is on a paintball tank the bubble counter would be horizontal and won't work. I will switch the counter when I get a real 5 lb tank.)
Drop Checker - ADA style from ebay
Substrate - Aquasoil regualr and powder on top (got some regular on top because I move the powder from other tank and couldn't remove all the regular out)
Plants - HC, HM, Rotalas, UG
Will add in some CRS/CBS when dry start is done.
Added some tropica 049. HC is starting to carpet, going to flood the tank soon.
6/13/12 - DSM until the HC start carpeting and rooting.
This is the drop checker that I'm using for my 60-F but temporarily testing it in my CRS/CBS tank. Hear that the liquid they provide is not accurate so I'm gonna have to buy some 4dkh solution. Can someone please link me or tell me who can I buy from in the forum before I look on [Ebay Link Removed] I'd love to support people on this forum before I give my business to ebay or other sure.
These photos of the regulator was before I noticed that there was a leak and all the Co2 leaked out. It was the brand new and had a leak so I email the company and they sent me another replacement. Aquatek has great customer services.
Heres how it should look when full.
6/24/12 - Seeing some growth
Love how fast they grow. I have the lights on 8hrs a day. Should I leave the lights on longer? Would the HC grow faster when I leave the lights on longer?
