Solace one, an aussie 60P

FTS 28/2/14


How are we all,
this is a journal of my second planted tank but my first ''high tech'', as you can imagine it is hard to source good gear in Australia, you have no idea how hard it was to get the Current USA Sattelite + lights haha,

I plan for this to be medium high light, medium co2 and medium fert dosing as to keep maintenance relatively low. (lets see how long that lasts!)


Equipment:
Tank: aqua one rimless 60x30x36 (60p)
Lighting: current USA freshwater +
Co2: Kegerator 2.6kg cylinder and an ista dual stage regulator

Filtration: Eheim Classic 2213
Heating: hydor ETH inline 200w heater
Substrate: ADA Power Sand Special, ADA AquaSoil Amazonia II powder
Testing: API Freshwater master
Accessories: ADA Sping washer S, Do! Scissors curved S, Pinsettes S
Fertilisers: seachem Flourish, Excel, Iron, Potassium, Phosphate and Trace

Plants (planned)

Hygrophlia polysperma
Rotala rotundifolia, pink/emersed
Hemianthus Callitrichoides (HC)
Eleocharis parvulus
Cryptocoryne becketii
Alternanthera Reineckii Mini

Fish (planned):

10-12x cardinal tetras
2-3X otos
assorted shrimp

negative, the substrate is on an inclined angle like most and just appears that way, gives it a bit of depth which I like, plants should arrive in the next few days

So this is 36 cm tall and 60 cm wide? It looks either wider or shorter.. Where did you get it?

60x30x30, not sure what brand, looks very similar to do aqua, rimless and all
ADA 60P's are close to $550 here and do aqua 60p is $200, bit expensive

Ohhh. That makes sense. Because the it looked about half as high as wide, I was confused.

15 days growth, im pretty happy, ordered some Taiwan moss, blyxia, otos and cardinal tetras the other day so hopefully thatll give it a bit more of a filled in look, HC is growing well on the side with the diffuser, bit slower on the side without
might have to get a powerhead or something










some funky patterns on my crypt becketii

Nutrient deficiencies perhaps instead of "funky patterns" so check iron or Magnesium deficiency symptoms.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
