Looooooooooove me some of that HD photography - especially when it involves HC. Let's get some HD shots of the whole carpet and its texture/fullness! Tank looks great man. Keep up the good work.

hahaha I wish I could: ITS NOT FULLY CARPETED YET.
One of my well kept secrets, when you see it from the front it looks lush and dense, but from the top there's still plenty of holes! So I agree, it would look amazing, but... I can't, lol.

Well shoot. Could've fooled me except for the one picture where there's very slight bits of soil visible, but no biggie. It still looks quite nice. Were most of the Canon shots with natural sunlight or with the tank's light?

Very very nice, I love the F-series tanks. Toying with the idea of building my own 75-F or 90-F as they don't make them bigger than the 60-F

they do, they have up to a 120F, but the dimensions were a little weird, I think it's just like 2 60f's side by side, so you don't have the depth.

Yeah Freph it's all just natural sunlight.
Well guys, I'm back from a little trip to Duluth, MN. It was really very fun, and relaxing too. Maybe I'll share some pictures in the photography forum later tonight.

That is because they discontinued the 90-F and 120-F Frank said.

Awesome tank... I noticed that your 45-f has the "old" ADA logo.....very cool. Also, nice to see fellow audiophiles in the planted hobby!

I have both an "old" and "new" logo mini L. I can tell you that the old stuff is far clearer. The new ADA looks like DO!AQUA in comparison to the old stuff. I do quite a bit of horse trading when it comes to audio gear so the setups change frequently. Newest setup is a set of Martin Logan Aerius i, Rega Apollo-R CD, Pioneer Elite Amp.

Those are some pretty awesome speakers!
I know what you mean about trading out equipment- I do a lot of Garage Sale-ing and turning over gear for a profit, so I get to test out a lot of different equipment! A fun hobby for sure.

A couple big changes in the tank I thought I would share. For a while the Riccia has really been bothering me. Trimmings were too rigorous, and would leave my HC Carpet all messy. In general, it led to an "unclean" appearance in my tank. While I like the plant, and I'm happy to change things up, so I replaced it with DHG. Can't wait for it to fill in! Also I trimmed the HC for the first time. Now the tank looks MUCH cleaner.

SO Messy. Also a great portion of riccia detached!


Everything Removed.


Little less messy.


Trimming Mess.


Ahhhhhh. So much nicer looking.




Also got a new fun toy: A WP8x. My first phone- I've got to say it makes life much easier. Anybody else using the WP8 OS?

I like it w/o the ricca. Your tank glass clarity does look superb. Not sure but new ADA tanks do have a slight bluish hue to the LIG.
