Skytop's ada mini-m

hey guys, i've been browsing this forums for almost a year now and finally come to setting up a planted tank.

ordered a do!aqua mini m from afa, and look what I got


ferts from pfertz


zoo med 501 filter


archea 27 watt from afa


fuval 25 watt heater


shou stones from aquascapes in hawaii


zebra stones two on the left from afa and the one on the right from aquascapes in hawaii



and for substrate I'm using flourite red

will update soon with pictures of hard scapes, i'm leaning more with the zebra stones but we'll see.

Is the Flourite red looks like small piece of flat rock? If so, I have heard some people say that HC will have a hard time to hold their root on this substrate. Good luck.

I kinda figured but i'll probably dry start the hc or pick up some power sand.

Played around with the rock for a hard scape let me know which you you like.

nice start by i agree with the fact that you'll need a third rock to complete the iwagumi feel.

I really would like to but the extra zebra stone I have is way to big (rock on the left of the two pics below) and i have no idea how to sense fully break/smash that rock


But updates: 1 gallon of metricide is comming in tomorrow, and for flora HC, and DHG, or UG. I'm open to any recommendations for flora and fauna.
