    Another day... another ADA... *sigh

    See, this is why having spare aquarium equipment is problematic! My new 75P was supposed to be my sole FW tank. Well, having to wait to get it started just gave me the itch to utilize my old 60H stand and equipment.

    I apologize ahead of time for not writing up or taking pictures of anything during the process. I was so focused that I just realized I should even post a thread!

    I'm doing a dry start with a humidifier hooked up as a fogger. Here's a teaser pic:

    it's blue because i'm using a 14K halide (It's nowhere near that blue in real life) until i can get my hands on a 10K lamp.

    Top down of what this currently looks like:

    A lot of the HC died back converting to fully emersed including emersed roots. A couple of patches didn't initially make it, but I seeded the left over rock wool with a few pieces. All branches now have at least some established growth. I imagine this will look fantastic once it's submerged and completely grows in.

    I have some patches I had to nurse back to health after the humidifier showed it was working put wasn't actually putting anything out. There's a 150w halide over this tank, so as you can imagine, things can wither pretty quickly.

    I would go ahead and submerge this, but I may be moving soon. I don't know what I'll do with this tank if I do end up moving.

    That's a nice good Chinese elm emulation.
