ADA/ADG 90cm Iwagumi

This is a tank I did for client in a personal office (stressed-out attorney looking for a relaxing, anytime diversion). Not a contest entry or anything, just a clean tank and a happy customer.

Substrate: 1- 6 liter bag ADA Power Sand Special M, 3- 9 liter Aqua Soil AMAZONIA normal type, Tourmaline BC (on the bottom glass, light dusting).

Ferts: ADA Green Brighty Step 1, then Step 2, Brighty K, Green Brighty Special LIGHTS (macros), ADA ECA after water changes/weekly.

Lights: ADA Grand Solar I (PC 36 watt 8000K X 2, HQI 150 watt 8000K X 1). PC for 10 hours per day, HQI (with PC) for 5 hours per day.

What a beautiful tank! I'd love to have one of those at my work but would probably not get my work done, lol, I'd be lost staring at the tank. It's great.

My guess is since he is using all ADA ferts he is letting the customer do that.

It could be that it's left to the customer, but mostly the fert dosing and WCs are charged as a package deal with the set-up. A least, that's how it's done here in Singapore.
That is a gorgeous tank, I wonder how it would look with a white background.

I really envy my fishes and plants,they seem to be getting so much more attention than me. Shouldn't i start pampering myself a little more?

The fish are black neon tetras.

I think the black background is post-processed. I may be wrong....

Superb, Jeff. Simply perfect Iwagumi, literally!

Indeed-- the client in this case is very good about dosing the tank to my instructions. So we are using the ADA ferts as they were intended, and even someone with no experience dosing the tank has done it well due to the very simple nature of the pump bottles and precise amount dosed.

The black b/g i post processing because this tank has no background is set against a gray wall that looked really ugly through the tank in the image.

That is a beautiful tank. How do you get a job like that? I think it would be great to start new tanks all the time for other people. You've got an awesome occupation.
