Bitz' 60P adventure

So I've seen many examples of people's 60p on the forum lately. I just want to add yet another to the group. I just finished a hardscape that I like and any comments are welcome.



System Specs:
-ADA 60P
-Kessil A350W (spare from a reef tank that was taken down)
-ADA Aquasoil
-Ryuoh Stone
-SS inflow/outflow pipes
-Do! Aqua Music Glass

Cool scape! Planning co2? That's lots of light if not.

I'm doing pressurized CO2. But the cool thing is that I can turn the light down if needed.

That light looks very blue. Should be a good build.

Looks like a very nice start

The group of stones on the left look like they could be more to the right to center the hardscape in the tank - just IMO

Have you found much difference between Ryuoh and Seriyu stone, or did you select Ryuoh based on availability?

I have both seiryu and ryuoh stone in my posession, they look almost identical to me. Seiryu has a little more character.

Nice build! I'm interested to see how that light works out for you. Intriguing stones, they do look like seiryu... but do they affect chemistry too?

Haven't updated in a while, been too busy with school. I was just able to get it filled up tonight. Here's a side shot of my equipment.

Heres a pic from this morning after its been cleared up a bit.







Not much growth but hopefully I can get this thing going pretty good. I'm using pressurized CO2 and I have a decent amount of leftover fertz that I'll use.
