Ada 90p

Tank: ADA 90 P
Lights: 2x Kessil A80
Filtration: SunSun 304b

Rex Griggs Co2 Reactor
Dosing: Jebao DP-2
Heater: Hydor In-Line Heater 200 watt

First step was cutting the plywood to size and made a frame on the inside, painting the interior of the stand with kilz primer to protect it from water. Then on the outside I did a white formica.

I picked up some seiryu stone and went to work on the aquascaping. I had a lava rock base. Later I would then add Aquasoil on top of the lava rocks.

I ended up having to move, so before then I scaped it and started the dsm. Here it was then.

Nice stand you made there wish I could pull that off.

Why did you put the two kessils on the left side? Doesn't it shade the plants to much on the right?

This hardscape was really nice IMO!

I think the stones are to much covered now but most important is that you like it

Thanks that was my favorite hardscape. I totally agree about too much pennywort, I'll be changing it up. Kessils are on one side to keep that peninsula look and working with what I got. Not sure what I'm going to do with the dark side yet, I have extra stone I might brake up and put there maybe some anubias nana.

I too like the earlier hardscape better and lighting setup better. Atleast, the photos you have uploaded seem to show them that way

I see that you have sunlight directly hitting the second setup. Is that not causing any algae issue?

I really like your tank. Nice layout. The only thing is that essence it is a peninsula I would always want to have enough light to see both sides easily. I wish you would sell those tunas and get something as simple as a satellite plus pro. It has a time, looks much less bulky than the tunas and it will put out enough light for your plants to grow. Do you inject co2?

Thanks skye

Ps: that stand is

Probably won't sell the lights anytime soon, might try and move one light around to the other side to see how it looks. Would have went with another light if I knew I was going peninsula, or hung them from the roof if I knew I was staying here long. This tank will probably be here another year or two before it gets moved again.

I picked up some Blue-Eyed Forktail Rainbowfish and a few otos. I'll quarantine them with the ttm method and then treat them with prazi pro. Also try and fatten them up as well.

I ended up pulling out all the pennywort, felt the leaves were to big for the scape and it blocked a lot of flow. I might pull the new blyxia too. Thinking about adding s repens to the top or another small plant.

I got the auto dosing and the co2 setup. I'm starting off with a third of the pps-pro. I removed the Blyxia Japonica, and added S Repens, Fissidens Fortanus.

Just some generic 17mm lilly pipes off ebay from Hong Kong. Had to convert it to 3/4 hose for the sunset 304b canister though.
