Anyone use a Finnex PX-360 on one of these tanks?

http://www.aquavibrant.com/filtratio...er-filter.html

Looking for a more affordable solution than a Eheim 2213.

The Jebao's and SunSuns on eBay are promising but they all have way too much flow for this small of a tank.

I do. I have to run a powerhead to have enough flow throughout the tank, itself just isn't enough.

Looks like I found the right place!

I just received my Mr. Aqua 12g long, and was looking for ideas on planting it.

Lighting is Aquatic Life dual T5, it has two bulbs one is an acintic (sp?) not sure what the other is. Is a 10k and a 6500k too much for this tank? I have the light setting on the rim.

Filter will be a Ehiem 2213

I will also be running Co2.

I will be using Amazonia Aquasoil as substrate.

Plants, I am currently looking for HC but cant find any locally. I also will be using Dwarf Hair Grass as well for ground cover. Looking for other ideas as well.

I will be adding some shrimp, just unsure of which ones. Ill be adding 12 Pygmy Cories as well.

I am thinking of adding some drift wood and some rocks is I can find something that I like. I am looking forward to set it up, and get some pics.

Welcome to the club!

Yes, that will definitely be too much light sitting on the rim of the tank. With dual t5s you'll have to raise the fixture up a lot. A single T5 would be a lot, even with co2. Can you run it with a single bulb? If you can I would suggest that, but you will still probably need to hang it or add some window screen/mesh to cut down the light if you want to leave it on the tank.

Thanks for the reply rocksmom, I am unsure of if I would be able to run the fixture with only one bulb with out causing any issues to the fixture, but I will do some research. I plan on setting the tank up on my mantle so I would be able to hang the fixture from the ceiling if I have too.

My tank as it sits until I get my co2 in and some more aquasoil.

The bulbs in the light fixture are 1 6k and a roseate (sp?) bulb. Doesn't look too bright but I am just a noob to plants tanks.

Jaygee, I have some spare HC floating around in a container after my rescape if you want it for price of shipping a small flat rate box. I wonder if I could just stick it in a regular envelope though. Too bad you're not that close to me. I do warn you that its been floating since last monday (someone please chime in if it's too far gone since I have no idea. I think it still looks good though) and there are bits and pieces of java moss tangled in it but you'll have to separate the hc in smaller pieces to plant anyway so that shouldn't be a big issue. PM me if interested


Edit: just the HC, and maybe that piece of mini pellia if you really want it. I am keeping the anubias :p

Nice tank ADA. Wish my buces would show out like yours. Mines seem to be struggling. Great selection of plants.

My 12 as it sits today, hc has totally filled in and looking really good. Have about 15 oebt and 20+ supreme red babies roaming around in there now with another 4 berried oebt. Contemplating ordering some royal blue tigers from speedie if he's not sold out.
Baby oebt

Anyone noticed any price drop for these 12 longs since the last time which was over the summer sometime?

I would love to get one again for my apartment in Pharmacy school and it'll be nice if I can do all of the emersed growth now

I'll be checking periodically and if there is a sale I'll be sure to make an announcement. Please do the same if you see a sale!
