true it will mix, the other solution to that is to top off your tank with the aquasoil.

hey i thnk your setup is unbelievable, its what i planned to do but i didnt get around to buying an ADA tank which i regret...but i just couldnt afford it at the time i set up my tank. but yea i like your lights, stand, and light hanger style. i actually want to rescape my whole tank soon and i am trying to find some good hardscaping rocks. where did u get those rocks from? or what rock/landscaping yard did u get it from?

Thanks, I was thinking about a large school of a small fish like the exclamation-point rasbora. And shrimp, shrimp and more shrimp.

That tank is goin to be awsome when it fill in for sure!!

I wish i would have stumbled across this thread before I went an drilled holes in my ceiling. The cheesy anchors that were supplied with the light make me a lil nervous.

Awsome idea with the conduit Bill!

I love the rock arrangement and the shot of the Nymphaea micrantra. Great DIY as well. Things are looking really great!

I really envy my fishes and plants,they seem to be getting so much more attention than me. Shouldn't i start pampering myself a little more?

Thanks everyone for the complements. It looks like I will be getting at least 100 exclamation-point rasboras. I am also moving my school of sterbai's (11) into this tank once the HC starts to take. And I have like 30 amanos waiting for the tank. Its a heavy load so we shall see what happens. Probably won't take place for a few weeks though.

hey, that fish load sounds great i cant wait to see it set the tank off nicely. i maybe suggest not putting ALL of those in all in one day. maybe put either the shrimp first and hte fish second. i found that putting in too much too fast doest go too well SOMETIMES. but i always like adding in shrimp first, so they get used to the tank and feel safe to come out all the time. anyone run into any problems with too many inhabitants all at once?

Yeah the fish won't be here for at least 3 weeks. I already have the shrimp I was planning on adding them in about a week.
