Marimoball's ADA 120p


OK I have been in the hobby for twenty years. So after learning so much on forums my 120gal planted Discus was tore down.
This was my 120gal planted discus tank

After my ADA60P I have been wishing for an ADA120P. So I finally managed to purchase one.
Here is the list of equipment so far
ADA120P
Garden Mat
ADA Lily Pipes inflo and out
6x9L bags of aquasoil
6L bag of powersand
Bactor
step 1 step2 brighty K Brighty special lights Brighty special shade
tourmaline BC
green gain
Hardscape is 100lbs of Seiryu stone and 100lbs of Chinese zebra rock
3x8000K MH bulbs
The stand will be an ADA replica and will be ready for painting tomorrow
I can't decide on lighting but I narrowed it down to two. The 6 bulb T5 HO

TEK light or 2x150w Aquamedic pendants

Wow, very nice equipment! Must have cost you a fortune for the rocks alone! I'm very jealous. I'll be watching this, 100% subscribed. I'm expecting big things from this setup! Have fun with it!

why would you be jealous? You have a great deal of stuff too. I have had about 150 dollars spent so far on my 20 long, and I dont have all the plants or fish yet. its a lot of money to me.

anyway, MARIMOBALL, I can tell, I can tell from the start, that this is going to be a marvel of a tank.

peace dude,

Nick

In an alternate universe maybe I could get something like this. This kids is why you don't do crack and you do well in school...so you can be rich like this man!

Seriously...how much was the mortgage on that thing?!!!

I expect great things from this...and If it looks good, I will take credit for it...that's just how I roll...

roundtrees Im not rich. But I work 7 days a week and I work in the medical field so that helps but I payed cash CUZ I don't want any credit debt. This is my final large tank and I expect this to last a long time. I really want the pendants I even have the bulbs ready to go but someone offered me an awsome deal on TEK lights. I was even thinking of getting the TEK and a K2 viper MH and dismantelling it and hang it behind the TEK just for the shimmer of the MH
