One question though, where/how does the Orb attach?

Thanks,

The orb is attach to the glass by two strong suction cups.


Howard what's the orangy pile of substrate? In the back right head side?

That orange pile is what ADA Bacter Ball looks like in the tank. It starts out as a ball, but in a very short amount of time it melts and turns into a orange pile of bacteria. If I had to do over again, I'd just stick with the Bacter 100. Same stuff but in powder form already and I can just dose a little bit each week.

Either way, I love my 60p. It's a nice size tank. Not too big not too small.
Yeah, How much did you pay? if you don't mind me asking.

I bought my 60p about 3 years ago so it was a bit less. I also picked it up in person at a LFS that got it from AFA. So I don't think the prices are comparable. However, if I remember correctly it was between $130-$140.

If I could buy one at that price, I would buy two... a 60P and a 60F!

1.5 Month Mark

There's a scout shrimp in there for two weeks now still doing alright. Will move colony over in a week or so.

Water Parameters:

Ammonia - Close to Zero (Can't really tell with the stupid drop tester)
Nitrate - Still testing Nitrates. I'm not adding any ferts which means soil is still leaching. There's enough beneficial bacteria to convert the Ammonia to Nitrite then Nitrate.

Will need to keep up the WC until soil stops leaching Ammonia.

I love, love, LOVE those white anubias. Really wish I could find some up here in Canada or someone willing to ship (in warmer weather) because they are beautiful and offer amazing contrast. <3

Nice layout and the hardware is amazing! Love the level of detail you provided. Can you tell me what was included in the 197$ price? It was just the glass or the other stuff as well?

Trying to gauge how much was all the ADA products although there's a slim chance I can get my hands on it since there's no one selling in my country and ordering is also complicated

The smaller canister is plugged in or serves just as a pre-filter?

$197 is just the tank.
