MTS begins - Ada 45p - "hints of Yosemite"


Well 7 weeks into the hobby tank #2 has started. This will hold me over till we move into a new house in the next two months and I can take delivery of a 120P.

I didn't like the ikea stand I was using. Went back to AFA and bought the archea stands they make. I'm pretty happy with it. A little pricey for what it is, but prevented me from building something myself and it looks good. I'll be doing a 120p in the next few weeks as we finally found a house and will most likely buy the archea stand they make for that. Click image for larger version

Yeah! Will add clear hoses once we move. Not in a rush since it'll remain fish less until then. What's funny is this tank was to keep me busy until I can order a 120. The 120 will be here before I put fish in this 45!

Some updates. The wood up front is just there to grow some moss on.

Trimmed the DHG the other day and it's starting to spread out a bit more.

The floating plants are also just there as they are growing like wild beasts in my other tank.

Moss is growing in nice (that wood with moss next to the main piece is also just filler for growing some Xmas moss)


Lighting right now is about 5 hours on - 3 off - 5 on. Also dosing excel daily

Added some Red Japanese Rotala Macrandra this weekend.

Co2 tank arrived today, just waiting on my regulator from co2arts.

Also starting my EI dosing and got my ferts from nilocg today.


Battling a little algae and moved one of my nerites in from my big tank.

Added co2 today and an online heater. Had to put the inline on the inflow due to space limitations. Also need to do some cleanup and organization!
