Project 90-P [update 140416]


Thought Id share some pictures and specs on my next project.

Setup:

* ADA 90-P 90x45x45
* NA Movel elite cabinet - etimoe light matte finish
* NA Power filter @ 2.3l SunSun pre-filter @ NA steelflow
* DIY cree xp-g 150w 6500k light cannon
* Glas garten soil + NA rio sand

I was going to build an ADA inspired cabinet for my 90-P but stumbled across a cabinet stand I really like from a company in Portugal. Pics of it further down.

That is a really nice stand. How much does it cost? I tried googling it but nothing showed up.

The NA tank/stand dimensions are different from ADA...just a heads up.

I hope youre wrong. According to the site the cabinet is: 900x450x850mm

However, the other tanks/stands are different from ADA just as you say.

I didn't look at every tank, only 60 and 120, so I assumed the rest would be slightly different as well. Thanks for pointing this out.

OK, so after some issues with the delivery company the stand finally arrived on a rainy summer day. Looked at it for a while and went back to my flat, far to heavy to lift. So waited for a friend to come over and help. Very long 6 hours.

Very well packaged and very heavy. Not a scratch wich I didnt expect.
Closest I will ever be to an unboxing showcase picture frenzy.


The finish and attention to detail is absolutely superb. Looks almost identical to oiled walnut. If I had to be picky, the doors are a bit hard to get flush with the cabinet sides. Oh and the stand is not 900x450mm as specified, its actually 905x455mm. This is made on purpose to accomodate inconsistencies in aquariums i was told, some legroom you might say. 2mm on each side is barely visible, but i would prefer it if the exact measurements could be found on the manufacturers site.



Soft closing drawer and sturdy pull out shelves. Bought NAs tool kit and some fertilizer bottles since the cabinet comes with the clear plastic fittings especially made for them.


I can see know the point with the custom stainless in/outflow pipes. They would look really cool going in trough those slots. But the do!aqua are really nice too, and fairly priced.


Next on the agenda is deciding what lights and Co2 setup to get.

With lights Ill either go DIY or buy a maxspect or NA system. Not shure how much I want to spend.

If DIY Im thinking about 3x50w or perhaps 2x100w 7000k cree multichips on cpu heatsinks mounted on some bent stainless 5mm tubing that rests in the tank rim kinda like the new ada aquasky. Simple and pretty design if its doable without advanced tools. Or maybe just buy about 6 ebay 36w par38 bulbs, but mountiing them will be a hastle.

Any suggestions about lighting is appreciated (but bare in mind Im located in europe, so preferably something I actually can get hold of ).

I think I saw the same cabinet in another thread, from a person in Portugal? With another 90-P.

Looks really hi-end, great workmanship.

You are correct, he/she had an NA aquarium on it though. 5cm taller than the 90P.
That thread caused me to order this cabinet. He had the same laminate type (etimoe light) but in high gloss finish.
