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!

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

The 60P is definitely the fundamental ADA tank. It will probably be my next tank.

I will make my formal introduction later with all info here. I also have a Besta stand. I talked about AFA/Archaea stands in my thread and was pleased to see them in LA, Nature Aquarium. Though different in style than ADA, another cheaper way to go, especially if the front to back difference of the Besta bothers you. Did not think to look at prices since AFA is likely cheaper and much closer to me, just figured some SoCal members may be interested.

Anyway, I will do a proper introduction with tank pics and links once I get back to the Bay, and have a computer.

I am so scared to get the Besta due the type of material because I have a 36 bow front stand that is warped and falling apart due to the excess amount of water changes and cleaning of filters. Time and lack of had cost me to get it wet too many times... So I would like to find something just as elegant, simple, but made out of a real hard wood.

Yeah man... if you get your stand wet often, then the Besta may not be the ideal choice for you. I'm super careful not to get mine wet... if there's a drop of water, I make sure to wipe it off immediately. If there's a potential for water splashing, I drape everything in towels.

I think what you're describing is a DIY ADA-Style Stand. If you're good with wood-working then you can probably build one (there's plenty DIY threads on the topic). Or you can hire a carpenter and give him the blueprints.

This older thread I started before I bought my Besta stand might help you (there's links to some how to's).

I'm just super careful to not get my besta stand wet. I also added extra reinforcement.
