ADA 60P, 10g wAbI kUsA, plastic tub emersed fun, bonus JBL!


This will be my journal for all things green, aquatic, and grow out of the ground! This will be my second aquarium (the 60P) so it will be a big learning experience for me! the tub is to hoard plants until they grow into a manageable amount. The Wabi Kusa is my way of getting around my parents 1 tank rule.
the JBP (Japanese Black Pine) was a christmas gift that I will do my best to keep alive and grow from seedling to hopefully mature bonsai.

60P:

Tank: ADA 60P aquarium tank
Stand: DIY ADA replica using plywood and black formica
Light: Fishneedit 70w MH, or a finnex fuge ray 2 (thinking about trading the MH for the finnex)
heater: 200w hydor inline heater
CO2: Aquatek deluxe co2 regulator, 10lb co2 tank, ADA gray co2 parts set, do!aqua diffuser
Substrate: ADA aquasoil malaya "powder", powersand special s,
Filter: eheim 2215, Purigen, Do!aqua lily pipes 13mm, ADA clear piping
Fertilizer: DIY auto doser, EI dosing
Plants: TBD
Hardscape: Driftwood, ADA branch wood small, seiryu stone
Live stock: Haven't given it much though, but definitely 5-6 amano shrimp, and if I ever get around to fish, pencil fish, or Nannostomus sp.
rimless 10g Wabi Kusa

Tank: de-rimmed standard 10g
Light: TBD
substrate: plain 'ol sand
filter: possibly Aquaclear 30
Plants: TBD, for now HC, Ludwigia Brevipes, crypt wendetii 'green' Rotala sp green rabbit foot fern, Polygonum Persicaria, Eleocharis kParvula (all emerged)
Hardscape:: ada branch wood, some misc. rocks

Emersed fun:

Container: plastic tub, with smaller plastic tubs!
substrate: Organic miracle grow soil
Light: coralina t5 24w 6500k light
plants: Nesaea Triflora, Rotala Rotundifolia, Myriophyllum mattogrossense, crypt wendetii "green", glosso, HC

60P, JBP seedling, and...SCAPE!
The plan right now is myriophyllum mattogrosensse, rotala sp. green, ludwigia mullertii, hedyotis sp "rio", hemianthus micranthemoides, HC, glosso, and perhaps eleocharis parvula and eleocharis vivipara. I was thinking about doing them in a wabi kusa form, i'm still thinking about it.

Any advice on the scape is appreciated, I have a ton of photos from looking at for inspiration so I may post some so you cans can get an Idea of what i'm thinking about!

P.s sorry for all the bad pics, its an iphone 4, i'm still getting used to the camera my dad gave me!

Two things:
1) woot woot Minnesota!
2) I wouldn't pack the seiryu stones so tight in the wood front. It wood look nicer (punpunpun) if they were a little looser and maybe scattered a little in front of it.
Also, those are violet glass pipes, right? If so, post a pic of the whirlpool effect, if any.

MPLS represent!
alright, I will work on a new scape to tryout. my plan was to have it look like the wood was kind of on top of the rocks, because there will be a sand in the front if the aquarium. Also will do on the pipes! i'm excited to try them out, especially from going from a hob filter to my first canister with lily pipes

update: HC and glosso has arrived, and I also got some bonus capsules! Once you buy from other hobbyists you never go back!
also, my "birthday present" has arrived, AKA my new 10lb CO2 tank
