Was bored so I bought a 10 gal ADA setup

10 gal ADA so what is that? 45-P? ya... think so...

Anyways, was bored the other day so I went to the fish shop bought a 10 gal ADA tank, JBJ regulator w/ paintball adapter to attach a 20 oz on/off valve paintball tank to it... and I think a 96? watt CF coralife 6700k light...

yes I know that's about 9.6 watts per gallon... thank you.

Anyways... bought some ADA amazonia for the substrate... some zebra rock... I dunno what else... uhhhh...

HC for the ground cooooovveerrrageeee... see how that looks... first attempt at growing it but so far it has been the simpilist task evvverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

uhhhh... tanks going pretty well so far still a little cloudy but it'll calm down after a little...

Basically just proving you guy's with pics as it grows... if I see people hitting up this page over time I'll keep loading pics...

uhhhhhhhhhhhh... similiar threads? why ADA? what the hell hahahahah

why ada? Because it's extremely clean looking and hopefuly good quality...

I would hope so... hahaha just saw that thread up there sorry...

ANYWAYS... here ya go... I'll keep postin, PEACE OUT.

Wow, I wish I could buy an ADA set-up every time i got bored.
Looks good so far. The rocks are a bit too symmetrical for my taste, but it's coming along.

Cute little tank. A few comments.

The veins of the rock on the left and right are unnatural to the rock in the center. The center rock may have been better placed by moving slightly left of center or right of centerrrrrrrrrr (kind of too proportional). Some sloping of the substraaaaaate may have enhanced the rocks a bit more.

Any plans for a background plant(s)? Whats your plan for filtrationnnnnn and faunaaaaa?

oh and slope your substrateso it dips in the middle between the rock piles, should work well methinks

nice someone else with a 45-P! i say once youre done blasting that HC with 96W, sell that light to a reefer, get bored and buy one of these http://www.marineandreef.com/Satelli...p/rcu01002.htm. and i would work on moving those rocks around a bit, they look too symmetrical

Is it possible to grow the HC emersed with 96w first.. then get a lower wattage for the complete tank when it's ready? think that would be a cool speedy idea

dude I'm in college... I go to class, go lift, train, study, take care of stuff, then work on tanks... I can keep the HC under control... even if I have to trim it every day.

btw, no attitude... just trying to get the obvious comments out of the way.

Did not mean to offend anyone was just having a rough day.

I didn't even ask for input, I just thought I would keep a decent log of how the tank comes along and show some cool pictures for people to enjoy.

its not that the plants will grow out of control, its the algae that will. i would cut your lighting at least in half unless you want some serious algae problems..
