Schuber Wright mini 66

I recently bought another tank and I'd like to share the progress with you guys. I was not planning on buying a new tank anytime soon but saw this tank on amazon and fell in love with the style and lighting. I do not have everything right now but will have items coming soon. Here is my list:

Tank: Schuber Wright Mini 66 4 gallon rimless tank
Light: 2x13 6500k bulbs
Stand: Ikea Hemnes nightstand
Filtration: Bought a new Zoomed 501 but found a decent deal on a Eheim ecco 2232 locally.
Substrate: Ada Amazonia
Co2 regulator: Gla Paintball regulator(coming soon)
Fauna: Unsure atm, maybe shrimps?
Flora: hemianthus callitrichoides and maybe fissidens(if I can find any)
Stones: Ohko stones
Diffuser: Archae Ultra Mist

Ok, here are some pics. Sorry for the cell phone quality pics:


Fts(I am pretty happy with the scape):

At first I was ok about it and was thinking about just replacing it with the Ada Mini S but now it's growing on me.

question that eheim would that not be to strong for a 4 gallon...i only ask because i would like to add a canister filter to my 4.2 gallon..i have used azoo filter similar to the zoo med 501 filter but creates to much current, any feed back would be great

The eheim has the quick disconnects that can adjust your flow rate. I also wanted a canister filter that an be placed under the tank.

Thanks, Ebi

dhsanti, I say go with an eheim 2213 or a 2211. You can find it on amazon for a decent price.

Very nice scape. I might have some Fissidens if you want some. It'll likely have some Red Ramshorn and RCS babies in it, though. I may be able to spare some Anubias nana petite as well but I'll need to see what I have left after I set up my cubes.

dj2005 Yes I would love some if you have any to spare. Just let pm me the price.
