So things are going forward very slowly due to the 90-P being faulty, so Ive got plenty of time geeking out in accessories to ease the pain.

Bought stainless in/outflow and some sexy sand. Sorry for the scrapyard in the tank.




I must say that NA has blown me away in customer service and value for money. ADA - not so much. And before you ask; No I am not sponsored by NA or anything like that.

Those Stainless ins and outs look great. Love how they fit perfectly into the stand.

What brand are they, and where did you get them?

How tall are those pipes from top to bottom? I looked on their site, and I couldn't find it. They are $120 shipped to the US, which isn't bad at all.

Thank you! If I would have seen these back when I was getting my lily pipes, I would have got them.

I might just get some and sell my lily pipes.

Same here. I didnt get them and the stainless filter with the cabinet because I already had an eheim and do!aqua. But I recently broke the outflow on my 60-p and made it an excuse to spoil myself

You just need to find an excuse.

I have to clean my lily pipes, which means I have to soak them for a while. I can't leave my pump off for a day, so I need a spare set to use in the meantime. Hmmm... that was actually pretty easy.

That stand is really nice looking. I wish more companies made stands that are a high quality piece of furniture, after all it does become a piece of furniture in your house. I hope ADA takes care of your faulty tank so you can get this thing going.

Oh yeah and those pipes are pretty sweet looking also. No way your breaking those cleaning them.

If people actually want to buy this stuff in the US I'd like to know.

the retail price on this exact stand in the US would be about $850-900 plus probably $100 for shipping depending where you live.

Its always hard to know if the market is big enough. When I bought mine I compared it to the ada prices and found it much cheaper.
Payed approx 750usd for the elite stand, shipping not included. An ada stand would have been alteast 1700usd. I have never seen an ada stand live though so I dont know what is so special about them.

So, after a few beers@ebay I just happened to order a 150w cree xp-g chip, lens and dimmable driver

The idea is to make a centralized scape with surrounding sand. so this one intense light source will hopefully work and look nice.
