Do!aqua Plant Glass Cube20: Might


I just set this tank up today.

This is what ADA calls a "Plant Glass Cube". It's twenty centimeters cubed; a bit over two gallons.


I know what you're thinking.
The driftwood should be a bit to the left. Right now, I think so, too.
Once the plants grow in, however, I think it'll be right where it should.

It's sorta wabi-kusa style but not really?

edit: and like I said back in Source, That moss is going to look fantastic when it grows in

Wabi Kusa is just an Aquascape Katamari

Looking good UG. You know instead of setting up more tanks you could just upgrade the Mini M's Hardware

Lucky you get to go look at all this stuff in person.

Craig

P.S. Any thought on that Yamata Stone?

Rebooting...

Dollface pretty much said it. I was just being clever. Instead of pronouncing it the way it usually is: QuasEYE, pronounce it QuasEE. Then: QuasEE-Wabi. It rhymes!
It's because this is marketed as a Wabi-Kusa tank, and the way I scaped it isn't. So it's a fake wabi-kusa.

Thanks! I can't either.
Once the Mini Microsword spreads, I'll be adding a dense cluster of dark plants in the back right corner, probably Bolbitis and one other stem plant. That way the rock will look like a river running through a dense forest. That's the plan, anyway.

Temporarily, yes. I've since gotten a thirteen watt 5,700k screw-in CF. (It's a tad high for a tank this size IMO.) Soonish I'll go to Fry's and pick up another Ott-lite for this tank. I'll also probably be pumping CO2 into it. DIY. I thought I wouldn't, but I now realize that I can't help but put CO2 into a tank.

If you look, they have a ton of cool stuff there. I like this. It's called "Waterfall". I've love to 'scape that. But $260's a bit steep for me.

I'm moving to japan! lol I wish. I always wanted to go there though.

That waterfall tank does look pretty cool. I wish I had the guts to try to make my own tank. I'm just scared it will bust or something.

Thats it UG you are a full fledged ADA junkie addict lol uh and welcome. that is a neat little tank. pm how much they cost. don't really see the wabikusa influence but very nice. for a wabikusa use these filter http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS...rnalfilterdj50
http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS...derwaterfilter
hide it behind a rock and bring the water down to half and that bolbitis will look awesome when grown in air. Now im really jonesing a new tank all these ADA nanos all over the forum. I have a new ADA 30C sitting on my floor since Sept. I also have a zoomed 501, new eheim 2213, new light, Aquasoil, ADA branco sand, seiryu stone, drift wood and CO2 set up. But Im already busy with 2 ADA tanks a cube, koi pond, work, and 2 clients waiting for me to set up there tanks

Hey, Craig. I did get the Eheim 2232 for Source yesterday. I've yet to set it up, though. More precisely, I set it up, but getting the tubing straight enough to not cause my pipes get all crooked was a PITA. I need to figure out something to keep the tubing straight while having the filter next to the tank.

The only other thing I'd think of upgrading on Source is the stand. I'm kind of in love with the Ott-lites on this tank. The spread's perfect.

Yamata stones are nice. They are very small, though. One could do a good 'scape with them, no doubt, but I didn't see a single piece bigger than closed fist. No pieces stood out as Craig's-gotta-have-this-one! though.

I know, huh, Brad. I didn't even know about planted tanks when I lived in Japan. Which is a good thing, probably. It's expensive enough just living there, let alone being addicted to all the cool planted tank stuff they have.
I've been dreaming of a Mini-S inside of a 60-F. Water from the Mini-S would cascade into the 60-F and back again. That'd be neat.

My name is Ugly and I'm a ADA addict.
Hi, Ugly!
The price was twenty-five for the tank, MARIMOBALL. I not going wabi-kusa in this tank. I'm too much of a control freak with planted tanks to go that route. Letting the Bolbitis grow out the rim is a good idea, though. Is there anything special I have to do to achieve that?

Speaking of being an addict:


My kitchen is starting to look like a fish store. If I weren't so reliant on my microwave, I could get rid of it and have a corner of Aqua Bliss. (Actually, when I get a Mini-L, I will be moving the microwave to the other side of the counter so as to have my corner of Aqua Bliss.)
