DBP 3L set up


Won a ADA 60F and need room to build new tank set up. Wanted to make room so, tried to sell my "Collage" tank. Had no buyers so, decided to turn this into next year's planted tank contest entry. The original set-up included:

Deep Blue Professional 3 gal long "5 betta tank"
Archaea 25cm clamp hanging LED
UpAqua 25cm clamp pendant LED
custom built external "mattenfilter" components
*Rio 90+ powerhead
*(1) glass 9mm lily pipe output
*(2) glass 9mm lily pipe intake
* glass box & sponge foam pads

See this thread for tank background:

See this thread for filter background:
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...738&highlight=

Replaced Archaea & UpAqua LEDs w/ Finnex 18" Fugeray. Altering the "mattenfilter" by modifying the sponge foam pads to chamber a glass diffuser for pressurized CO2 & replacing the 2 glass 9mm intake pipes w/ a single Cal Aqua Labs 13mm X1S intake pipe.

Scape idea is to DSM an contoured HC carpet. When contest time approaches, the tank will be flooded & driftwood pieces w/ plants attached will be added to accent the scape.
