Elmo's ADA 60P ~ Tropical Blackwater Riparium ~ HD Video Update 1/29/13
 
I'm going for an Amazonian River Bank setup here....The supplies will be here within a few days, and it will be setup as soon as the Manzanita sold by PC1 shows up :icon_bigg

I got a heck of a deal on the tank...Picked it up in NYC for $100, and it came with a 2x24w T5HO Nova Extreme Fixture and flourite black sand. Although I've recently decided against using the Nova fixture (I decided to stay low light) it was a deal I couldn't pass up! Plus I could always turn it into a high tech tank later...

Here's the specs of the tank....

Tank

-ADA 60-P
-3D Rock Background

Lighting

- Marineland Double Bright LED Fixture
~12 LED's total, 600 Lumens
~Beautiful Shimmer effect
~Built in Moonlights

Filtration

-RENA XP2

Stand

-Wood
-Open Style
-Custom LED Accent Lighting

Substrate

-Leslie's Brand Pool Filter Sand

Driftwood

-Manzanita from PC1 here in the Swap and Shop section


Plants, if any, and fauna are still up in the air at the moment, but the specs will be updated when I decide what I want...I don't have any real pics yet as I'm still waiting for supplies and don't want to give away too much, so this will have to hold you over until then :icon_smil

Stay tuned for updates!

Oh my gosh, that is such a teaser shot ! Haha. I can't wait to see this tank progress :) sounds awesome !

how disappointing, i always assumed that the ADA logo was acid etching into the tank not a cheap sticker!
still nice tanks though!! :)

Haha, thanks guys...it looks like the filter will be here tomorrow, and everything else will arrive on Saturday. Then I just have to wait for the driftwood to show up. Last time it took about 10 days, so I expect it to be here about Thursday of next week, then maybe I can show you the actual results lol....

Well it wouldn't be any fun if everybody had one :biggrin: Besides I want it to be a surprise. Let me get mine first and then I'll tell you! (Maybe lol)

boon 08-12-2011 04:50 AM

Damn, those does look nice. I hope you are getting the one that I think you're getting. Lol.

Thanks for the info. I'm not doing it just yet so you're good. Maybe in 2-3months time perhaps. I want to see your first.
