우리 Project 60-P


60P Project



Let's start with a little history, with my first two tanks I set unrealistic goals. I never really payed attention to the small details and I always wanted to add this, change that, or redo the whole scape. The style of a nature aquarium is what drew me to this hobby but the effort I put into my tanks did not match what I wanted to achieve. After being unhappy with the outcome I lost interest, sold my setup, and ended up forgetting all about TPT. Fast forward to 4 years later, I was surfing the web killing some time and decided to revisit this site. I was a little sad to see that one of my biggest inspirations @Ugly_Genius was MIA. Regardless, I kept looking through everyone's journals and became re-inspired. I came across @merv's PT and admired his idea. The scape he is trying to recreate sparked my interest. I hate to copy his idea but I like it and decided that I'll go for it too. I thought to myself, would it be a good idea? Would I get a lot of hate for it? and is my motivation for this tank extrinsically or intrinsically oriented? At the end of the day I just want something that my wife and I can enjoy. I value everyone's opinion but I realized that I have been focusing too much on what others think. Once I get a good grasp on the basics of growing plants, I'll try to be more adventurous and create my own scape. Anyway returning to the subject, I spent countless hours researching and relearning about new and old, equipment and techniques. I have been planning and putting together this setup for the past 3 months and finally have everything I need to get started. I definitely went over the budget on this one but oh well, might as well do it big right? The plants which I ordered online from Han at hanaquatics.com should arrive on Monday! I look forward to my success and failures with this tank. The end of the road is far from here but I plan to enjoy every minute of the journey. This is where I start.
