NEW 90cm NA Update pag2 24-07-2013


Hello

Will start this new journal with a new 90cm NA tank.

i will try to post as many photos as possible and try to make frequents updates.

This week will arrive the NA wood cabinet ELIT version. It is and advanced version of the their normal wood cabinet, that is made only for freshwater tanks. I've seen some pictures and i liked the glossy finish, and it is also made of an exotic type of wood.

They told me this ELIT version was a special production and they only have a few in stock, and there is no plan to produce more, so this made me make my mind to get this one.

see you soon.

Hello

Got some photos to share.


It is very difficult to take photos with the glossy finish, it reflects evrything...



Here you can see the inflow and outflow holes. I think is holes make much more sense that ADA ones. Hoses come vertically from the wood cabinet, not horizontally, so i think "smile" holes like ADA don't make much sense, funny thing is that everyone keep copying ADA type of holes, but that's my opinion.



This steel design in the wood looks really fancy.



Since this is the ELIT version is does not have holes on both sides.





It also have got some fancy acrylic holders and drawer and got velvet, that gives a luxury feeling.





And that is how it looks on the lobby.



Well i have some more photos to share, and i will probably gonna take a few more today.

this is the protection sponge that comes with the tank. This sponge is different from usual, it is thinner, and it looks more slim with the tank on top. I like it.







And now the tank. As you can see, you can barely see the protection sponge. It is a mere details, but when you search for something perfect, you look at all details...







That's it for now..

see you later

That is really fancy, furniture quality. The color also matches the molding in the office.

This is the right start and stuff. Looking forward to more updates.

This is going to be good... If I may ask, how much was that stand? It's incredible.

Most beautiful aquarium stand I've ever seen. Shame we don't have American companies making these high quality stands and aquariums (at least that I know of). I know some companies are trying to recreate the ADA beauty in mini aquariums, but it would be nice to see larger aquariums.

Can't wait to see what filter you select since every filter, with the exception of the SuperJet, is just ugly. No wonder everyone keeps them hidden in cabinets.

Check at their website, but this wood cabinet version is special one, they have produced only a few.

I manage to improve my photos skills so i hope you like new photos with much less reflection.







you can now see the aquarium tank glass in more detail, empty and clean for the setup...
Can't what to see it happen. I have taken some photos about the filter, light system and arm..



These are the steel flow pipes. This will keep my setup always looking clean and nice. I will never have to clean glass pipes that in 2 weeks are ugly, and wont have the problem to break them or hurt myself.



this is how the arm screws attached to the wood cabinet.



Now with the arm and the light system setup.







So this is the filter i bought.



Pump is made in Japan, a competition between iwaki pumps...



Now gonna show you how the filter come out...



Pretty simple hum....

For those interested in the company NA (Natural Aquario), I looked them up and they're a company based in Portugal. Seems like they are trying to replicate everything ADA. Their products look of very good quality and finish and it's a shame we don't have anything like this in the states. Seems like the price is a bit cheaper than ADA

Beautiful setup. Do you have a local store that has NA products on display? I'm interested in seeing more photos of their products, and their site is fairly limited.

Nice modern looking rig. If I had a good chunk of change lying around, I'd do something like this.
