Even though the only thing ADA I own is a check valve and CO2 tubing, I am always drooling over ADA stuff when I visit AFA or some other stores that carry some ADA stuff. Can wait to see this come together.

Re: Mini M AquaSky build thread!!

Well after several attempts I dont think I will be successful with the scape. I eventually got something with a bunch of pieces but its just not behaving...

Re: Mini M AquaSky build thread!!

I will try one other thing, taking manzanita and mount them onto a small square of slate. If not, I have another plan in mind.

Looks good, but why is the stand foot print larger than the tank? When it sits flush like in ADA View videos?

You bought that $900 stand? God, I envy your disposable income.

Actually the first one I've seen on here.

Re: Mini M AquaSky build thread!!

Lol not disposable, I bought it used. Just save man for bigger things. Its what I do. Anyways, heres the new scape... anubias petite on left and right side where wood and rock are, moss on 75 % of dw, stems in back, glosso foreground and up middle with cobra grass or something similar but short to break up glosso and wood edge. I would rather crypts but they would throw off the ratio.

Now that I've actually seen someone with one I don't like it. I like my stuff hidden that glass reveals too much. Big ugly CO2 tank, and the ones that my CO2 place exchanges are way more beat up and ugly.

Although I must say I'm still jealous ;p

Once its just a superjet and tower 20 the equipment isn't exactly ugly, frank and those guys dont have es300 yet and a tower 20 is few and far between. The glass stand isn't for everyone but its very fancy, granted its not made to have a green plastic eheim under it, I agree.
