Ramos' ADA Mini-M

Updating this post with the most recent infor. For the record I originally planned to do a 45-P but changed to a Mini-M then a week later caught a deal in the SnS for one. As of today (8/12/09) the only thing I need to get this tank running would be the heater, which will be in inline heater.


Tank:
ADA Mini-M
Light:
ADA Solar Mini M
Substrate:
ADA Aquasoil Amazonia
Filter:
Eheim 2211 with ADA Mini P-1 and ADA Mini V-1
CO2:
Victor VTS-253A w/ Fabco NV & 2.5# Tank
Ferts:
ADA Brighty K


As far as plants, I've got a short list in my head of stuff I might like in here. Here are a few I'm considering.
Utricularia graminifolia
Marsiela minuta
Fissidens fontanus
Stems of some sort, preferably short, colorful ones that aren't Rotala sp. 'Mini'

Hardscpae will be Seiryu or Ryuoh Stone

Fauna:
Blue Pearls/Blue Tigers/Some blue shrimp more or less.


The Tank:


The Light:


The Filter


The Pipes:


The Co2 & Ferts:


The Plunge:


The Inspiration

Thats about it! Stay tuned for updates to this!

Yeah I'd be saying a 2211 is gonna be on the feeble side, I had a eheim 2224 on a 45x30x30 tank and I found that woefully underpowered.

I'm gonna live life on the wild side and try out the 2211 on there. If that doesn't seem adequate then I'll throw the Hagen Mini Elite I have in my NanoCube in as well, and diffuse CO2 with that.

I'm the opposite way. I started at 30g and am now 15 & below. Though I wasn't planting the 30...
I'll probably get bigger once I am living somewhere I plan to stay for a while. For now small tanks are good for short stays haha.
