Inadvertently posted this to wrong section of site, so moving it here!
Back into the hobby after a small hiatus. Just moved to Pacific NorthWest and set up a new 60P.
60P (knockoff made in same factory as ADA tanks).
Hydor inline heater
VIV lily pipes (Do! Aqua knockoffs made in same factory, lol?)
Airgas homebuilt regulator
Inline atomic atomizer
HC for now, might add some Blyxa behind stone.
Planning on adding 15-20 microdevario kubotai...
MOST RECENT TANK PIC:
Just flooded the tank after a 1 month dry-start. I had a *ton* of HC that I had been growing emersed, so I covered the entire tank with it. The dark patches are where plants lifted when I got impatient and tried to fill it 2 weeks ago.
I've been building scapes using this same stone for about 5 years now. I'l probably continue working with it.
Trying to keep the aesthetic as clean as possible. The stand is a Besta.
The stone has a channel down through the middle... I filled it with Aquasoil and added some flowing HC. I bought this stone specifically to do this with UG, but after continual issues growing it, I decided to fall back to HC for now. The rock on the right is Seiryu, but it doesn't match the main stone. (It looks closer in person.) I'm still waiting to find the proper replacement... it seems Seiryu is increasingly hard to find.
Built the regulator myself with parts from Ebay and DIYco2regulator.... Tanks is "safetied" with the velcro band wrapped around it. Currently blasting the CO2 to help with transition to immersed. Going to hold off on adding fish until tank is established and stable.
HC has been pearling like mad and seem happy. I've got lights running for 5 hours, with CO2 coming on 2 hours before, and shutting off an hour before end of cycle. Hopefully the remaining gaps will fill in soon.
