Setting up a tank with my boss in our showroom/office! This is my first tank that I've gotten to setup completely over 4 gallons, and my first ADA.
ADA/ELOS Style stand, to be built by a friend. Boss wants
it orange. Like This
The 2217 seems nice, but this tank will be minimally stocked,
and for now the small price difference is a deterrent.
Catalina Aquariums 2 x 24 watt 24" T5HO (both 6700k), mounted on legs.
The light has 2 switches and 2 cords so I'll probably only run 1 bulb unless the tank seems like it needs more.
Hydor 200w Inline Heater
ADA NEW Aquasoil, no cap.
Pressurized.. in tank diffuser
Microrasbora Erythromicron (or CPDs) & Boraras Brigittae (mosquito rasbora). Crystal Red Shrimp/Red Cherry Shrimp, Albino Bristlenose.
HC or UG.... hmmm.
Crypt. Nurii (I know, weird, but you'll see!)
Maybe some Eleocharis Vivipara, maybe some erio eventually.
What i'm imagining is a sort of sloped "cliffside" look. My boss likes the carpet look, so i'm gonna just go with it, seeing as he's financing half of it.
How does it sound?
Looking for tips and suggestions. Money is disappearing quick, so suggestions like "go with the ADA fixture" or "Lily pipes" are not an option for now.
I'll get pics of rocks and layout idea up soon, although tank is still on the way!
