15G dutch

Hi everyone,

I read a lot here, and it now the time for me to show my "future" become my "present" project.

I sold two month ago a 60P ADA to get a CO2 pressure system by a guy here.

So my equipment will be like this, i will do it in a 15G rimless of Hagen.

Lightning:

- I'm thinking about to take my Razor R420R 8000k.

The light is a 160w, 27 inch and the tank have 24 inch. I will need to fix it on the roof OR i get a Finnex ray 2 ??

Substate:

- ADA amazonia regular 9L
- 5 Aquasoil additives

CO2:

- 5 lbs with matheson dual stage
- Metering valve
- Solenoid clippart
- JBJ style solenoid

Plants:

- I want HC
- Some others, we are limited here in Québec. So i will try to find some good plants. I love the contrast with red/green plants.

Fish:

- I'm thinking about 20 cardinals fish.

Others:

- I have a custom branch 28" high by 20-22" length.

The tank have 14" high, the razor option will be good with this branch.
I don't want cut the branch, because this summer i will close the 15G and do a 175G if all doing well.

- I have a custom MDF stand like ADA style
- Tools aquascaping

Here some picture, i will be able to update in 1-2 weeks when all other items will be at home.

That's really starting to fill in. Do you have any plans for using moss on the wood?

I dont really think about it, but i have Subwassertang (freshwater seaweed) in the mail.

Which one will be good on the wood ? You will only put some on the two in the front of the tank ?
