I gotta agree with antbug here. Though I don't think the ADA solar puts him in the HIGH light category, to have spent a fortune on all these ADA products, you might as well invest in a good regulator since CO2 is going to be the hardest to get right. Very nice looking setup though, ADA really does make some beautiful (albeit overpriced) products.

Where you get HC Cuba like that? Mind telling us the price of that dry start cuba. Very green with envy, almost as green as the Cuba.

With the finest equipment money can buy, beside the regulator, I expect good a top 100 ranking.

Did I mention how jealous I am of the set up?

That must've cost a small fortune!
But it is really nice! I'm digging the hardscape. :P

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

Whats the best regulator, I also have a Milwaukee, I'm not really interested in that cabondoser electronic regulator, its sort of ugly and will be visible through the glass stand, I hate the black plastic

The ADA tower wont be here for months, I will be the first in the USA to have one, yes lol

That is cool, but will our CGA tanks fit inside that? I thought it was meant for metric CO2 tanks, I am not 100% sure but I believe the tank goes inside, it has a hole for the reg to be attached on the outside, you could use an ADA Speed Regulator with an adapter (ADG sells it) and it looks awesome. Did Frank tell you anything about what canister to use?

With good reason, they cost more than the superjet es600 lol. For a 2l bottle and casing.

Hmm well it seems aesthetics is a major part of your concern. The way I see it, unless you go those small cartridges or the tower, a standard tank is going to be less than pleasing through a glass stand. Good regulators you can just ask and see what people can build for you. Oldpunk, bettatail both build pretty awesome regulators and currently, there's this swagelok setup thats $470 but it looks amazing (its on barrreport). It is one that I would want to show off. But its also really expensive.

Seeing as you want that tower (holy crap thats an insane amount to pay for a CO2 tank!) A stainless steel unit will be desired. Here is a pic of my current regulator. So definitely ask around and see what people can offer you. I am sure you can find a regulator worthy of standing next to ADA's equipment.

With a glass stand, I would do something like this 120P photo journal

puopg is right, contact oldpunk or bettatail on this fourm and have them build you one.

ADA mini L - ADA 120p
