Another thing i have to complain about here in Canada - No ADA ;( .
Would have loved a Mini M, but , i had to go get a larger custom tank built.
Mini M dimensions in next on my list though .

Have fun with this!

I wonder if you are like me and use a marker to mark the focal point on the glass when setting the hardscape.

The ADA distributor is on hiatus atm i believe.
I had a guy who planned out his entire ADA 90-P, and then after months the supplier told him they weren't going to do it anymore, so no clue.

He had to go get a custom tank & do a DIY ADA style stand.
I heard he set it up the other day, i gotta see cause i gotta pick up plants from the guy.

But anyways, no light? no problem just use a temp. light - sooner you get started the better ;p .
Heck for my new tank i'm already pregrowing the HC in my 2.5 hahaha .

If you want to get some extra flow out of your filter remove one of the ebows and let the pipe do a more relaxed turn, I got an extra 15lph.

plants are gonna be low tech no co2 plants, so java fern, micranthemum umbrosum, rotala green, taiwain moss, green myrio, and marselia. i might do DIY for this tank, but thats really annoying to mix up every week lol. i havent decided on either a rock or a wood scape, but im leaning towards wood.

i really like this scape, but of course i would have to scale it down a bit
