aXio's Do!aqua Mini-M and ADA Mini-S
 
I got a hold of some nice tanks locally from drink_soy_sauce.(<--- Thank you!!)

First one I will be setting up will be the Do!aqua. I ordered myself some CAL Aqua Labs lily pipes from GLA. Still waiting on my filter to come in at work. Not fully sure if I want to swap the Finnex clip on light for some LEDs on a dimmer and do a lower light tank or scrap the wood and go for a more traditional iwagumi tank.

Current Equipment List:

- Do!aqua Mini-M
- Finnex 26watt Light
- CAL Aqua Labs Pipes
- Fluval 106 (<-- Probably)
- ADA Aquasoil Amazonia Powder Type.
- Pfertz

No stocking ideas yet. Photos...sorry for the horrible glare.

I picked up some wood stone to start messing around with the scape. I ditched the wood branches for now, but I may try to incorporate them some how later on. Here is my first shot at it.

Thank you. Not entirely sure yet on the plants. I haven't decided if I want a low tech tank or high tech. Either way I want the plants to stay short because the rock work isn't very tall and will get covered easily. I was thinking about possibly adding more rock to make it higher.

I'm glad everyone is liking it so far. The substrate is ADA Aquasoil Amazonia Powder Type.

I would say, expose the rocks a bit more. Anyways the arrangement is looking cool. Kind of intricate and interesting. What plants are you gonna put in it ?
Lily pipes are so damn sexy!
I would like to know your reviews on finnex lighting.

Still waiting for my bulb for the light to come in. Once I get some use out of it I will let you know =) The LED nightlight is nice. And it seems pretty well built for a 20-30$ light.
