ADG Gallery 120cm ADA tank

This is a recently completed layout by Mike Senske (my brother) here at Gallery ADG. Substrate, ferts, and filter media are all ADA, as are the 8000 K HQI halogen bulbs.

The tank looks really good. The growth is tremendous as well, I love how almost every part of the tank is filled in with plants.

Could you please give us a plant list?

Also, do you usually add in the fish after the layout has been completed?

That is one of the most impressive aquascapes I've ever seen.

Is that Cryptocoryne wendtii "green gecko".

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

Fish? Looks like bleeding heart tetras and... some sort of little rasbora?

Absolutely beautiful! I would *love* to visit your gallery someday and see it in person!

Thanks so much all!

Plant list:
foreground: Eleocharis acicularis, Lilaeopsis novozalindae,
midground: Hygrophila sp., Bolbitis
background: Limnophilia aromatica, "giant" stellata (I forget the name of that main one in the middle), Rotala rotundifolia, Rotala sp. "colorata", Ludwigia arcuata, Micranthemum umbrosum

We add fish after about 1 month, on average, sometimes sooner though.

That's actually not a Crypt, bit rather that new Hygrophilia-- Porto Vallejo or something like that?? It was featured in the newest issue of TAG-- maybe someone can clear that name up for me. We got it in Japan, and I had never seen it before here, but I guess it is starting to make its way around. It has the coolest growth pattern and we have been using it a lot lately.

Here we are using Amber tetras (smaller reddish guys) and a new-to-the hobby tetra (seemingly) in the same family as Bleeding Hearts, but for now they only seem to have a location number, which I forget at the moment.

I'm not sure, but I am sure Robert will clarify that for you! It's a great and very versatile plant. If Aquabotanic has some, I'd pick some up for sure.

I hope you don't mind me poking around your web site. Will "The Inspired Aquarium" be out soon?

Bolbitis is placed perfectly - the "glue" of the aquascape. You never fail to impress, Jeff. Especially when you consider how busy you are. Thanks for the post(s), guys!
