CryptKeeper54's ADA Mini M
 
Bought a used ADA Mini M light/tank setup. Light is genuine, but tank looks too green compared to my shcuber-wright, so a bit skeptical; it may be a knock-off. It is what it is.

Thought I would move on to trying an Iwagumi scape. DSM started last week. Just keeping it by my west facing window, hoping that it gets enough light. Ryuoh stones, e.belem, and hc. Been really busy as of late so keeping my posts simple. My scuber-wright is still in the works.

Holy cow, I can't keep up with all your tanks! And I agree, nice rocks.

Good luck with the DSM.

Excellent scape. I would shallow the slope some, though...

Not only does the glass look green, but the glass looks thin. Should be 5mm, how thick is it?

Just measured it...4mm. Scuber wright is 6 and a lot less green. At least the light is real, no doubt about that.

Hmmm... I'd fight for a refund...

What light did you get, I didn't see?

That looks to be an older ADA tank, they used glass with more iron before switching over to the very high clarity glass. Not sure when though they switched to the higher clarity glass.

The matching light. This looks like the real deal. Here it is in my messy room.

I'm guessing you're right. I don't think I was being scammed or anything.

Ah, the Solar Mini. I'm very jealous! I'd you don't mind my asking, how much did you pay for the set? :)

2 bills. I can live with that.

Just flooded the tank. Got bored of waiting..... hope I don't regret it. Will post better pics ASAP. Flooded my schuber-wright as well but still putting on the final touches.

Also, I have to say, I am very impressed with the design of the Fluval C2 filter. I think this HOB is perfect for this tank.
