Dan's ADA 45p - A Blank Canvas


Hi everyone,

So I've taken the plunge and done a bit of investing. My next challenge is to go Hi-tech planted. So far I have an ADA 45p, Aquasky light, Eheim classic 250, CO2 kit and a hydor external heater.

Now I have decided to start my journal whilst I'm still in the very early stages so I can see how the plans evolve before I go ahead. I think it will be a fair few weeks until I start setting up as I still don't really have a plan for the scape.

All I know is it will be high tech planted. Whether that be an Iwagumi style or more jungle. Who knows..., I am tempted by auto dosing my EI ferts. Another issue with these tanks is what stand to get. I kind of feel that a solid oak sideboard would be the perfect complement to it as I'm not a massive fan of the ADA stands.

Here are a few hardscape ideas I have at the moment, just with sand/ and old tank for trial purposes

Cheers,
