Default 60P Club| Pushing NA's status further

60P Club|


One of the most popular tank size is seeing some great scapes lately by the fine members of this forum. Post your ADA 60P, or any 60P similar scape here and show off your gear. Likewise, you can post your bare naked tank and get some insight on different ways to set it up. A user by the name of Brian_Cali77 has created an amazing banner for this club. You can save the image to your favourite hosting site and use it as your signature. Or you can just add the following to your signature.

===============================================

Popular Equipment List:

To reduce the number of question on certain similar equipments, I thought it be nice to include a list of popular additions to the 60P. My first addition to this list would be:

The IKEA Besta stand: Affordable stand with near exact 60P dimensions.

This stand comes in a varieties of configurations. You can have a single stand with a glass top or two stands for extra room. Another great feature are the doors, you can have glass or a solid wood trim.

An example:




===============================================

Hopefully, we can create some interest and show off some of NA's amazing scape.

Thanks FlyingHellFish for starting this! The 60p is my latest acquisition and I'm thrilled to see other 60p's out there!

I just started my 60p a few weeks ago... I'm experimenting using 2X Current Satellite LED+ fixtures. So far, I'm liking the results.

Still going too make some changes but here it is so far:

Initial Planting:



About a month later (10/28/13):


Less than 2 weeks after that... 2nd trim:


I'm also using a Besta stand... it's perfect!

Me too! I used to constantly try to find all the 60P threads when I was researching, had a stack of links of 60P


Opinion the Besta stand: IKEA has a glossy glass top you can buy that glues on at the corner. They give you extra "glue" in case you mess up (which I did) and you remove the glue with a blade. Just make sure the stand is level, you can adjust the "legs" on the stand.

@ Brian_Cali77

How it feel to have your banner appearing everywhere, awesome job bro!

@ octanejunkie

That driftwood is banging, it's like the perfect size. About the over planting question you have, I was always told to plant a lot when first starting a tank. I end up planting a tiny bit then slowly planted more, I didn't encounter any problems beside the occasional water change. I believe you can go either way.

Thanks... I'm still trying to figure out how to boil that bad boy.

I have too many plants and big dreams... I am debating if DSM makes sense for me with what plants I have on hand (all submersed) - must buy more plants!

I'll probably end up talking myself out of it soon enough, I just need to procrastinate a bit more so the pendulum can come full swing.

ps. Nice banner Brian! If that career in web design doesn't work out you'll have a job as a forum logo maker for sure

Hi friends, may I join your club?

I managed to fit the banner in my sig, and my 60P is called a 23G, but that can change...

I'm still in the planning and acquisition stage, here's the wood I'm planning on using


Still need to boil it out and then soak, then start the DSM

I plan to try bio-yogurt brushed on the wood along with glued/tied emersed plants. I'm modeling my build loosely after Tropical layout #77, very loosely

Here is the tentative list of plants as it stands for now:
10 pots of H. C (Dwarf Baby Tears)
3 pots of E. tenellus (Narrow Leaf Chain Sword)
3 pots of E. acicularis (dwarf hair grass) - prefer E. parvula but can't find it
2 pots H. sibthorpioides - (dwarf pennywort) emersed, difficult I know...
H. leucocephala - emersed
H. pinnatifida
E. montevidensis (giant hair grass) - submerged to block intake tube
B. Japonica (have)
A. Bonsai (have)
S. repens (have)
-need to think out this list

I also scored a few rare plants off SCAPE that I will hopefully be incorporating into this scape, somehow...
2 x Microsorum pteropus 'Windeløv' (ok, not very rare)
2 x Aglaonema simplex (emersed, tied to wood)
2 x Aglaonema minima (emersed, tied to wood)
1 x Cryptocoryne ciliata (might use this emersed in our betta rebuild)

Mosses, exact usage to be determined:
F. Fontanus (glued to rocks)
Flame Moss
Taiwan Moss
Mini Xmas (tied or glued to wood)

Livestock will all be community oriented
7-10 neon tetras
7-10 T. espei
4-6 Otos
6-8 Amanos

Someone please talk me off the ledge of overplanting, overstocking my little 60P
