The 60F Club


I see lots of other thread clubs, and I figured that this less common ADA tank should get some love. I have 2, and they are my favorite. If it was feasible, I'd gladly get 2 more as I think they offer an interesting design perspective. So, post up your 60fs!

Ok, here is a pic from last year in July. This was right after a drain and rescape. You can see the staurogyne carpet, the peacock moss on the branches, the very large and thick fissidens carpet, and the hardscape. There are also a few smaller elements like some UG, mini pelia.



Here it is flooded a little while later.




Here is a berried wine red at the water's surface.


I will post some more recent pics once my new lights come in. The old ones burnt out and I am on cheap IKEA auxiliary right now.

I will also post my other 60f, the Blue on Blue tank when we get some other 60f entries.

Ok, here is my other 60f. It's my blue pearl + OEBT tank.

Here is the original hardscape from last August.



Now here is what it looks like today, mini pelia carpet fully grown out.



Lots and lots of blue pearls although I've sold most of what I can afford to sell right now.

No one else has a 60f to share? Whenever AFA gets them in, they always disappear in the first week it seems.

Looks great! Love me some staurogyne. One of my 90ps is basically just stauro and moss. Super lush looking growth you got there.

Actually, no. That is a shot from last year unfortunately. That shrimp jumped on me the very next day after taking that pic. RIP.
