ADA Mini S

Pic of my latest Mini S. Pretty simple scape, low maintenance, very enjoyable.

Cmon. You know you can't just post a pic like that and not give us the specs!

The man is right, you just waved it in front of us and left us wondering.
Specs or it didn't happen.

Thanks, I think the buce will spread quickly in this tank with the high-light and good nutrients. In the Mini S even the Buce looks big.

Can you post a link to the co2 system you use? For some reason I can't find it. The tank looks beautiful!

Hi thanks for the comment.

I wish I could post a link, but I haven't seen the particular co2 regulator I'm using for sale in a number of years. It's an Azoo, nothing fancy but it was there mini version I do see the full size one for sale, which I have one of those as well and has worked fine for over 6 years.

Beautiful little scape, did you add more buce since the last photo or did they just grow that much more? I have an order coming in from Buce Plant right now and am trying to figure out how long it will take. Thanks

Thanks, yeah I added a small clump toward the bottom area. So far the Buce hasn't really taken off yet, although I do see new leaves everyday and have some flowers developing.

I really like this, thanks for the inspiration!
I just inherited a 3 gallon with a black back that I don't know how to work with, this type of scape would work really nicely.

My only issue is the cap: how do you deal with the Amazonia rising through the sand? I tried this on my 1gal and within a month or two, I couldn't even see the sand anymore.

I realize it looks that way from the picture, but the front is all pool filter sand so there isn't a cap. The only place I have Amazonia is in the back where the Blyxa is growing.
