Alright, ladies and gentlemen, things are coming together! Today my parents came with something that felt like a birthday present... my first rimless ADA tank! Have been a huge fan of Amano's work, it's nice to have some of the equipment he stands behind instead of just AquaSoil and few other knick-nacks. That said, unboxing these kinds of items is like Christmas morning. I really understand those seemingly stupid youtube videos. The box weighed 25 lbs, which wasn't bad and I even carried it up the stairs. Getting to the box was easy, a good amount of packaging to protect its precious cargo. Underneath all that packaging was my prize... the coveted Mini M! I carefully cut the straps and removed the cardboard to unleash its glory. Then I promptly put it in its place on my desk and started setting it up. Below is what I have so far. Unfortunately, I lost one of the rocks I was going to use so I'm left trying to find a replacement, oh well. I think I could use some extra AS, and then I'm ready for planting. HC only so far, we'll see as the tank progresses. Also, I got some free stuff (T-shirt, an Aqua Journal, and a 20th Anniversary Pamphlet) because my order came so late.
