Just trimmed. Need to do a wc tomorrow once I get a new hose. Noticed two dead oto. So had to do some work before any more fish die.


I've lurked in this thread before. So many amazing tanks and lots of inspiration. Gives me great ideas.

I swear this tank is weird to size plants etc. you'll see some wood and think it's perfect for the tank. Bring it home and realize its way too big. It's that weird size where it's neither small nor big!
Never buy without a tape measure in hand!

(unless you're lucky enough to have a local shop with 60P in stock and on display to test-place your decor... just don't forget to account to extra height needed for substrate!)

Or a 20 high. Just take into account the height difference. Even though I have not had a hardscape in my 60P, I have considered it and it's funny when I find a piece of wood I like and proceed to walk all over the store trying to find a 20 high.

I'll guess I'll post here..

School has been so busy for me that I haven't done much with my 60P. I was going to plant it when I got a free weekend, but the recent earthquakes have scared the **** outta me and I'm not sure if I'll be returning to here for awhile. I'm just so scared it may strike at any time and destroy everything as I know it.

So I am declaring myself on temporary leave, until I can convince myself that an earthquake won't ruin everything, or that school will get to the point of serious neglect. I am not leaving forever, but I probably won't be back for a while, I may stop by in May, but I should be back in mid to late June. If any word comes from me, it'll be either me checking in, or me slowly gathering non-perishables.

So farewell, fellow TPTers, and I bid you goodbye.. For now.

Benji

P. S. I got a new lens for my camera :> And I leave you with a picture of my work-less nano.

Sorry to hear you'll be going on a hiatus. Being a California born native, I've learned firsthand how devastating a quake can be. The last "big one" that centered in Northridge hit my place in West LA fairly good. Knocked my 60g tank off it's stand but luckily got caught by a workout bench I had near by. Could have been real bad.

Good luck in school. Your nano looks cool. I like how clean it looks.

Hey everyone. I miss my 60-P. It was a fun tank. Not too big and not too small. Not to mention it was my first planted tank.

ADA recently announced a new series of stands. They are for the 45-P and 60-P.
http://www.adana.co.jp/en/sc/news/detail/1619

They should be about half the cost of the classic cabinet style. $300-450.

Cool... Thanks for sharing that info on the new stand. It really is "plain" as the name implies. It's cool though for half the price as the classic, but at even another half of that, the Ikea besta has worked out well, IMO. I even got the glossy grey door

BTW, care to share an old picture of when you had your 60P?

I am not sure I get the "plain cabinet" idea. Is it the side open all the time and exposed? Seems ugly as well as hard to work around. I will keep my Besta for now.

HEY GUYS I'M BACK!
Sorry I felt like typing that loudly :> I cannot stay away and longer, even though I can't start up again for another month, and I will be a regular once again. I have gotten over my seismophobia, and plan to jump back in ASAP. There are 3 weeks left until I graduate Junior High (in case you guys don't know, I'm only 13), and then I'm off to Europe until the end of June, so I'll be up and running then. I'm hoping I can get the job opening at my LFS so I can get more goodies
As always, have a nice night!
