ADA 45P Style High Tech Planted Tank Wood Scape

Hello welcome to this brand new adventure where you guys are going to follow me along with. This tank does not have the ADA sticker anymore so it loses the ADA 45P Tank look. Kinda sad but let's get into the specs of the tank....

Aquarium ~ ADA 45P

Light ~ Twinstar 450E

Filtration ~ Eheim 2213 With a set of VIV Lily pipes...

Substrate ~ Penac P, Penac B, Bacter 100, Clear Super, Torm BC, PowerSand Special S, Ada Amazonia and powder

Plants ~ TBA

Livestock ~ 13 Ember Tetras, Dozen of Blue Dream Shrimps. Maybe I might change the live stock choice....

Co2 ~ Paintball Co2 20Oz Aquatek Mini Regulator.

Hardscape ~ Rhyou Stone and (I believe it's manzanita driftwood)

Here's a picture of the tank

Beautiful DIY ADA stand that my dad helped me make.

Secret Substrate Addrives (Penac P, Penac W, Bacter 100, Clear Super, and Torm Bc)

Powersand Special S and added more of the addtives

Added the ADA soil on top. I had about 3.5" of substrate on the front and about 6" on the back. Yes I know I used a lot...

Added Hardscpae Then the plants and the ADA Powder type...

That's all for today.

Make your own permanent ADA logo on the tank.

Print out the ADA logo you want in the size you want, cut out the lettering like stencils on something like electrical tape or frogtape and then use glass etching solution from pretty much any craft store. Then you have a permanent ADA logo on your tank where ever you want it.
