Scapes for next year: 60P and Mini M


Hola,

Recently, for my birthday, I got something very special in the mail. It was my first "real" ADA, a 60P. It seems so big!


I've already started planning them out, too. Here are detailed sketches I made of my scapes. If you have the Nature Aquarium: Complete Works book, the page numbers in the corner are my main inspirations.


After thinking more about it, I think I will be doing a iwagumi scape for the Mini M. I'd like to keep the styles in both different, and it should keep costs down as I only need to get one more stone.



60P:
Lighting: Sun Blaze 24" 2x28W, conduit light hanger
CO2: AirCo Dual Stage regulator, Pollen Glass Type 3
Filtration: Eheim 2213, 13mm Violet Pipe inflow, Poppy outflow
Substrate: ADA Substrate Additives, Power Soil Special S, Aquasoil New Amazonia & Powder
Hardscape: Horn or Branch Wood
Fauna: Cardinal tetras, Otos, Amano shrimp, Peacock Gudgeon

Mini M
Lighting: Archaea 27W Power Compact (might want to get an Aquasky)
CO2: AirCo Dual Stage Regulator, Do! Music Glass 15mm (I find that this actually works better than the Mini Pollen Glass)
Filtration: Eheim 2211, 13mm ViV Mini Lily inflow, 10mm ADA Jet outflow
Substrate: Aquasoil New Amazonia & Powder
Hardscape: Sieryu Stone
Flora: HC, Staurogyne repens, Eleocharis acicularis or Echinodorus tenellus var. or Blyxa japonica
Fauna: CPDs, oto, amano shrimp
