ADA Glass Stand 60P Solar 1 Seiryu stone HC

This is an ADA 60 P tank I've been waiting to set up, I had a hardscape with stones I collected from Virginia, spent a lot of time on the hardscape, months, recently I took it down and decided to rescape it with seiryu stone, spent 15 minutes on the new hardscape and I think itís better. I added 9 more Liters of ADA Malaya Powder type soil to get more slope.
Iím planning to do a dry start HC carpet

I really want the tank to look awesome because this is the best equipment Iíve ever used

Equipment;
ADA 60P tank
ADA glass stand
ADA solar 1, 150 watt Halide with arm stand
ADA Super-Jet ES 600
ADA Power Sand M 6L
ADA Malaya 9L
ADA Malaya Powder Type 9L
ADA Penac P and W Bacter 100, tourmaline, clear super
Achaea CO2 regulator
5 LB CO2 standard cylinder food grade
ADA Pollen glass type 3 Diffusor
ADA Cabochon Ruby

Iím going to do a dry start but I will use a lot of HC 1-2 sq ft, thereís 1 area where I may decide to put another plant behind the large rock, I will post updates next week during the dry start,

Love it. NICE list of equipment.

Can you add a pic or two showing more of the stand?

Agreed on the equipment. I would love to see more of the stand and filter.

Why skimp on the regulator? That the most important part in a high tech tank.

Is it just me or does the "archaea" regulator resemble the milwaukee regulators?

1. Good decision for a clear stand to show off the Superjet.
2. Where did you get that huge mass of HC?

Great set-up. Your equipment makes me drool.

Your hardscape looks so nice, very nice stones. I think the one in the front left would look better if it was pointing in the same direction as the large stone behind it, and if it was scooted a little closer to it.. IMO!

Its hard to get a good pic of the stand because its clear glass I would move it but its really heavy, I copied a pic from ADG to show it, Its got two wood plates and its low iron glass, I did scratch the bottom of my wood plate moving the super jet around it scratches easy, if there were a little garden mat for the super jet i would buy it

Go to costco and get a roll of plastic shelf liner. Cut to size and place underneath superjet filter.

The scape looks really nice, and it is awesome to see someone using Malaya soil! The color compliments the stone nicely I think.

Those HC mats look beautiful, and that is just in the bag!

Can't wait to see you plant it. Very nice equipment selection. Following.

Looks better than the original rockscape you had working.
