Ramos' ADA Mini-M
 
Updating this post with the most recent infor. For the record I originally planned to do a 45-P but changed to a Mini-M then a week later caught a deal in the SnS for one. As of today (8/12/09) the only thing I need to get this tank running would be the heater, which will be in inline heater.


Tank:
ADA Mini-M
Light:
ADA Solar Mini M
Substrate:
ADA Aquasoil Amazonia
Filter:
Eheim 2211 with ADA Mini P-1 and ADA Mini V-1
CO2:
Victor VTS-253A w/ Fabco NV & 2.5# Tank
Ferts:
ADA Brighty K


As far as plants, I've got a short list in my head of stuff I might like in here. Here are a few I'm considering.
Utricularia graminifolia
Marsiela minuta
Fissidens fontanus
Stems of some sort, preferably short, colorful ones that aren't Rotala sp. 'Mini'

Hardscpae will be Seiryu or Ryuoh Stone

Fauna:
Blue Pearls/Blue Tigers/Some blue shrimp more or less.

a think a 2211 might be too week.. 2213 would be best. or a 2211 + a powerhead/pump

Yeah I'd be saying a 2211 is gonna be on the feeble side, I had a eheim 2224 on a 45x30x30 tank and I found that woefully underpowered.

rrrrramos 05-28-2009 01:37 AM

I'm gonna live life on the wild side and try out the 2211 on there. If that doesn't seem adequate then I'll throw the Hagen Mini Elite I have in my NanoCube in as well, and diffuse CO2 with that.

LOL!
I'm sure that you can make a better scape than that ;)

Haha maybe I should put the disclaimer "pictures for reference only"
I don't have any pics of everything altogether except for that one, they are currently split between both my tanks! Part of me realllllly wants to order this stuff now, its so tempting!!

and what is the other part saying? ;)

rrrrramos 05-28-2009 02:05 AM

The other part wants to get the hell out of Illinois and set this up back in Texas! And I can't do that without money!

Looks like a cool project! I like the stand a lot.

el_santo 05-28-2009 02:13 PM

Cool another 45-P. I got mine yesterday so I'll be tagging along this thread for inspiration. :)

chase127 05-28-2009 11:23 PM

45ps are great little tanks. good luck man :D and good luck keeping your wallet closed :flick:

Dude, get a big tank. I had little tanks for ever and I enjoy my 58 way more than any of the small ones. and you can can score a sweet deal on craigslist.

I'm the opposite way. I started at 30g and am now 15 & below. Though I wasn't planting the 30...
I'll probably get bigger once I am living somewhere I plan to stay for a while. For now small tanks are good for short stays haha.
