Hi Frank, thanks for all the great insight. I am planning a planted tank setup with a sump, and since you recommend raising the lily pipes to the surface for more oxygenation, do you think that running an airstone in the sump would produce the same beneficial effect?

Hey Frank, I've been reading your ebook religiously and I finally caved and bought the whole ADA get up. I myself have the mini m and I'm doing a drystart w/ HC for my iwagumi setup...

While on my "drystart quest" - I've started to load up on ADA equipment

However, I have some questions regarding ADA equipment: the CO2 Speed regulator. Your ADG store carries the CO2 Speed Regulator along with a special N. American co2 adapter (http://www.adgshop.com/CO2_Speed_Reg..._p/101-303.htm)

I currently live in Canada (and we use CGA 320 standard CO2 tanks) - is this CO2 adapter compatible? And how much does ADG sell it as standalone??

Thanks

Yes this adapter is compatible. We will be sending some (as apparently they're a custom item made by the Eheim distributor in Houston) to our Canadian partner, Miyabi Aqua Design shortly. PM me for more info.

Hi! New to the forums and back to the hobby after many many years - in fact, back because my son would like to start. I just read this thread and wanted to thank you for journaling your tank - very inspirational! Although my son's tank is probably going to be more inspired by Spongebob Squarepants than Amano, I'll try my best to keep it somewhat in balance and in health (and beauty) over here!

A little known fact, sponge bob is inspired by Amano

Well guys, It's been a whirlwind two weeks - had a trip overseas (with some awesome untouched nature shots to share) and just returned here on the 5th.

However, my business with ADA has concluded. I'll still be around to answer questions and help the community, as I always have. If you wish to talk to me via email, you can reach me at fwazeter@gmail.com - or via phone at 281.617.2539, and of course, via private message here!

Best of luck in all your endeavors. Just looked over your linkedin again, you'll bounce back I'm sure of it better than before I'm sure of it.

I'll get to making that thing we talked about sometime this weekend.

Wow. Sad day! Sorry to hear, good luck on your new path. Well I hope we'll still get to see some amazing aquascapes from you.
