First ADA Tank

Hi, I just recieved my Ada Mini M today. Before I had received this tank I went to a Target and bought a stand for this tank. Currently there are no plants...but i did order some. This tank will be pressurized around maybe 2-3bps. For the filter i will be using a zoomed 501 canister filter. Here are some pics so far. Comments? Suggestions?

That is an awesome stand. How tall is it? If you don't mind me asking, how much was it?

I think the stand is 29-30 inches tall? I bought it for 44 dollars including tax.

Oh yeah that is a nice stand. If your going with a 501 filter just get a background for the tank and place the filter behind the tank.

Thanks. I might be getting my driftwood tomorrow in the mail. I might try out couple of hardscapes until I find one that I like. For the plants,...I am not sure when they are coming.

I bought longer tubing for the zoomed so it can go right next to the co2.

I've never used a Zoomed, but I've heard it has a hard time pumping/returning water if it is placed too low and that it performs better if it sits next to or behind the tank.
If it does and you place it too low, you might burn out the motor quicker than what the warranty states it is good for.
Anyone with Zoomed experience should chime in

Nice stand and tank though...I'm sorta jealoussssss...
