Brad's ADA 45p | NanoBox LED Powered

This is a thread to track my first freshwater planted build. I have been doing reefs for the past 3 years, but wanted to give freshwater a go.

Tank : ADA 45P
Lighting : NanoBox Mini Flare
Filtration : Eheim 2213
Heater : Inline Hydor 200W
Substrate : ADA Amazonia Aquasoil

I went to the ADA store on 1/20/14 to purchase initial tank goods.



Thanks for looking!

Here is a NanoBox over a 30c. The owner is switching to a 60f and will be using the NanoBox on that.


Looking forward to having my light built. Going with a navy/gold/wood color scheme. Will hopefully have it in 2 weeks.

Welcome to TPT!

I have read your reef 60-P journal, that was a great tank!

Looking forward to seeing your planted.

Looking forward to getting this planted tank started. I have always admired the awesome aquascapes of planted tanks, and gave in to starting one.

The desk looks nice, especially for the price. I'm curious to see where this goes.
