Just out of curiousity, how much was the estimate the rep gave you?

you could always get the 12inch 27watt light from aquascapes it would be a bit more than getting 2 ott-lites shipped here though. bah! we should all just get the solar lights from the ada website . hehe!

I dont really like the mini archea light. idk why? maybe its cuz I dont like the uneven coverage and the clip on arm for the tank.

lol I could buy one of the solar series for this tank but I dont see myself spending 200+ on a lgiht. Maybe If I used dollar bills to wipe my ass then I wouldnt think about throwing down that amount of cash.

Yeah, I saw that one a while back, that one was pretty cheap. how much was it again?


Anyways new stuff for the new tank. . .


New cal aqua lily pipes and IPA beetle bubble counter

Still no AS! The store should be getting there shipment in sometime this week. Feels like I've been waiting forEVER!!

The lfs owner was nice enough to hook me up with a couple sprigs of mini microsword out of his personal tank since no one else has or wants to sell to me I'll just keep it in this tank till the shipment of AS comes in.



I know its a small amount but its something! Thanks Jojo!

$130 or $140 shipped I think. My tanks only cost me like 350 for everything but the Co2 system so far, I don't think that's half bad!
What filter did you end up going with? Forgive me if you posted already, replying from my phone :p

I love the 2211, I think pairing it with the Mini-M is a match made in heaven.

As far as lighting, if you can get the Hampton Bay desk lamp I'd get that, then pounce on the next Solar M that pops up in the SnS :p
