I'll wait till they stretch it to the 47.7" like the 75G.
47.7 X 11.8 x 11.8

Depends on your scape but should be plenty. With that volume, should put you at a substrate depth of just over 2 1/4" flat.

With my scape, I had leftover AS from a 9L bag. I didn't use power sand put I did put down a quartz sand filler in two areas that I projected to have slopes. Good luck.

Those of you that have used ADA Amazonia in their tanks, how much did you use in your 12 long?
My current thought is 1 9L bag and I will also be getting a 2L bag of power sand. I just don't want to get to that point and be limited by the amount of substrate. Thanks

|natebuchholz||Not a problem, the best thing is to observe and respond to your tanks needs.|

Being a new tank with a lighter-rather-than-heaver planting of plants at the moment and likely haven't dialed in my ferts/co2 yet, I will definitely need to turn it down.

Great looking setup and welcome!
In regards to your question. This fixture gets a par of 36 at 12" from the substrate. These tanks are about 9" tall and you probably have about 2" of substrate. This would put you at 7" above the substrate.
Most of the intensity of these lights come from the whites so by dimming the other colors you really are not loosing much. My estimate for your PAR currently is around 59-65. I would maybe dim it to around 75%. High light is generally around 45 PAR but make sure you have ferts and co2 in equilibrium or else you will be growing more algae than HC.
Hope that helps

My 12L High Tech
I've done the initial setup of my 12L, waited a week and added some fauna after verifying the water had stabilized. Using my other tank's filter and Tetra Safestart helped immensely.
Mr. Aqua 12L
Eheim 250 canister filter
Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED + w/ ramp timer
5lb CO2 tank with regulator
Viv Aqua glass output/intake tubes
Hydor 200w in-line heater with Finnex thermostat (for backup)
Up Aqua CO2 bubble counter / diffuser combo
Dwarf baby tears
Cryptocoryne wendtii 'tropica'
White cloud minnows (currently in tank, doing great)
Pygmy corys (not yet purchased)
Cherry shrimp (in other tank for now)
Forktail rainbows (possibly, I just love them!)
Question: For those of you with the Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED + and high light plants like dwarf baby tears, what do you keep the light on? I currently have the white LEDs all the way up and the RGB running on full red, but am afraid that's too much. What do you guys keep yours on? 100%, 75%, 50%?
So glad I found this thread, and so excited! Thank!

A friend who owns a fish store was telling me about this today.

|julianmuerto||The SevenPorts facebook page posted an updated list of their aquariums. they are now producing a 22 gallon long with similar dimensions. two variants from what the flyer says. I asked for the price point but havent heard anything back.|

|swoof||no worries from me, i think they actually stopped selling the 12L 4 or so years ago.|
|03-14-2015 11:57 AM|
|natebuchholz||Im sorry, I had thought I had seen them on there. My intentions were not to lead anyone a stray.|

|swoof||I don't think GLA sells the 12L anymore, i checked their site and it's not listed anymore.|
