So my neighbor Bjielsl and myself are going to be putting together some ADA 90p's we do not have the tanks yet so we had to find something to pass the time... so what is that you might ask?? well when you have an empty 29 with a stand, a garage, and a 400 watt mh.... well I am pretty sure that your mind is right where ours was... we have decided to create a farm for plants. No plants in the pic but there are plants in there now. We are growing them in individual Tupperware type containers with soil in them... makes it very easy to keep plants separate.

so needless to say we will have plenty of plants to fill out collectors needs... LOL hope some of you all stay tuned!!!

Our driftwood should be here this week! (Thanks PC1!)

bjielsl's light will be here this week as well. I am going to be running my tek light with giesemann bulbs.

filters are bjielsl's responsibility (I have no idea what we are going to run but I have a feeling it is between the ehiem 2217 and the Fluval G3) so anyone that wants to put in there 2 cents please feel free.

I will be building my regulator going with a Smith 2 stage regulator, Ideal 52-1-12 needle valve setup (I have no idea what kind of solenoid to get so please give me some tips)

anyways thanks for everything (knowledge) that this sight has given me to feel comfortable taking on a tank like this and I hope that someone that is new to the game can take something away from our build! :)

sunsuns will be cheaper than either the ehiem or the fluval and will still get the job done for you. just my 2 cents :p

Sounds like a great project though! I have to admit im kinda excited just reading all this lol. Looking forward to more pics and updates ^^

I hope that you do stick around... we will keep everyone up to date don't worry. also thanks for the filter recommendation.
