The main stone looks like a pinnacle in a canyon, very nice.

What made you decide to go with the 602 over the 601?

Really liking this. I looked up Ivan Aquarium Design because I liked your stand, guessing that is you. You got me lol.

I actually like the Aquasky on the 60p which is weird to me as I really don't like the look of it on the 30CM's and 36CM's. Surprising, I really thought ADA dropped the ball on this light but it looks so much nicer on the 60P.


Now to complement you. Scape looks really nice. It's nice departure from the very traditional Iwagumi layout (or what I normally see I should say) while still maintaining the tranquil vibe and overall appeal that drew me in. The main stone didn't do it for me in the first pictures but has a new presence after planting. I only imagine this getting better.

What is your foreground plant? I am guessing UG but it's hard to tell on new tanks. Anyway, great job, looking forward to the progression.

Morning everyone. Here is a quick update on the tank. The tank is now stocked with ember tetras, chilli rasboras and 2 Ottos. The plants are growing like crazy and I've started dosing with ada ferts(brighty k, special lights and step 2)

Nugget - wonderful cabinet! I'm looking to build one myself. would love to get the plans of yours. If you're willing to share, could you perhaps shed any info on the cabinet - dimensions used, materials, etc.

WONDERFUL DISPLAY!
