zergling's ADA 120-P

Version 1 (2007)


Version 2 (March 15, 2012)


Version 3 - coming soon. I'm breaking down the tank next week to move to a new place, so now's probably a good time to post pics




Here's the progression of Version 2

August 2011


I added a more substrate to get more slope. Got it wet and started planting:


All 4 bulbs on, and light lowered. (LOL too blue! )


September 2011



October 2011


(Late) October 2011


November 2011


December 2011


January 2012


(Late) January 2012


February 2012

Thanks!

I have some fish pics, I'll dig it up from the journal I have at the sfbaaps forums. Of course, as can be seen in all my other pics, they are nowhere near the quality that our dslr folks take

Wow. Amazing. I love how it looks so much cleaner without the equipment.

Some fishy / inverts pics I have....

Front and center - N. Beckfordi,
Left - Glo-light Tetra
Back and center - N. Rubrocaudatus


N. Mortenthaleri (front and center)


RCS


Amano on a nerite


Shot of 4 of my Nannostomus Mortenthaleri (Coral Red / Red Arc Pencilfish). There's a pair of Beckford Pencfish in there as well


Shot of the Nannostomus Rubrocaudatus ("Purple" Pencilfish) on the left, and the N.Mortenthaleri on the right. There's a gertrude there in the middle, but it's too much to ask from an iPhone 4 to catch a non-blurry pic of it


Shot of the 3 pencilfish species I have in the tank. Left is the "Purple", top-middle is a female Beckford, and at the right is the Coral Red / Red Arc.
And again, there's a blurred gertrude there


CRS and RCS

Yeah, first time I took the time to take out the equipment before taking a few pictures. Now I understand why ADA and those amazing aquascapers do this!

I did my weekly water change the other day, and found the males actively displaying!
