wow! really like the green neons. How do you find they school? I'm trying to figure out a nice schooling fish for a 4 ft long tank.

Thanks SNM. Clear from the begining. But It took a month to cycle seven 9L of aquasoil.

roni, green neons are my favorite fish. They are smaller and school better than cardinals. Best schooling fish in my experience is rummynose, second is harlequin rasboras, third green neons. But the green neons beats them both in looks. They are wild cought so they do best in RO water.
Now im looking for 100 blue axelrodi for my next project. A new ADA 120P

Np not 3 120P just two. His room is awesome. Seen it in person. His pesonal mini ADA galery here in SoCal. I while back I switched all my tanks to ADA. Little by little. I have another mini m with solar light too. I do set ups for offices and private homes and lease ADA tanks so need to have stuff available. Have a mini LFS in my garage.

Are you using pure RO water? What are you feeding them? I think my tap water is fairly soft and I have access to RO water thought it would make water changes much more labor intensive. How well do 90 fill up the tank (how large are they compared to cardinals?)

thanks,
roni

How do you lease a tank? Just the equipment or already all set up?

Am I the only one who really enjoys the algea growing on stones in tanks? It reminds me of old buildings with moss growing up the side.

I did a major trim. These are pictures right before the trim, clean up, and water change. Ill take new pics tomorrow. The rotala butterfly in the left foreground is for my Mini M Hakkai stone Iwagumi.






right side


left side


I got this new wave point led light with a 3 gallon tank at reefapalooza, but its too blue its meant for salt water but it make a nice moon light. It has 12 1/4 wat LED's for a total of 3 watts. its 6 inches long and looks like a mini ADA light. But this light covers the entire 4 foot 120P as a moon light it looks fantastic. Im gonna buy the all white higher wattage light for my 3 gallon when it comes out in Dcember




Please comment and thanks for looking..
