So this is my second week on the forum and I thought Id just post up my new tank. Just picked it up the other day so ill say this pic is Day one.
Its a ADA mini L tank about 8.8 gallons. 45x24x30cm Which im really happy about getting. you see i walked into Aqua forest in SF the other month for the first time and it re ignited my planted tank hobby. Ive been keeping a 75 gal Extra tall in my family room for a few years now, actually had the tank since I lived with Mom and Pops, but never really took the tank that far. Just anubius, java fern and the easy stuff. But thats another story.
So anyhow Aqua forest enlightened me to the world of CO2 and now ive been running a paintball setup on my 75G for a month or so, things have been chaning quick in that one and I really wanted to setup a 2nd tank in the downstairs office so i can have something plesent to look at and at the same time scape and keep some dwarf shirp.
Currently im running just a HOB style filter, Aqua clear 20
Stealth submersible heater
Aqua soil Amizonia - the fine type
The pad is actually a static mat that i trimmed down to fit under the tank.
Still waiting on the ebay T5 light setup, CO system, and a few other things to show up.
Ill keep updating as things move along.
