I will attempt to document the step by step process and progress of this tank.
The tank has been setup up just over a week so i will run through some pictures taken so far.

Lighting: 2x18 Watts T5 AquaQube 9400K
Filteration: Eheim 2213 external filter + Lily pipes
Heater: Hydor ETH External Heater 200W (12mm)
Substrate: ADA Power Sand Special, ADA Amazonia and ADA powder
CO2: Pressurized at 3 bps, diffused through inline up atomizer
Dosing: ADA Fertilizer Series + Bright K

So here goes
