    I don't think I have very many posts here as I've mostly only been a lurker so figured now is a good time to start a journal. I went with an ADA system using the Mini M.

    SYSTEM


    ADA Mini M
    ADA 36cm clear cabinet
    ADA Aquasky G 361
    ADA Superjet Es-300 Spin
    2L ADA Bio Rio
    ADA Bubble Counter
    ADA Pollen Glass Mini
    NA Regulator with Solenoid
    4lb Co2 Bottle

    SUBSTRATE

    ADA 2L Power Sand Special S
    ADA 3L Amazonia Soil Powder Type

    PLANTS

    Rotala H'Ra
    Rotala Colorata
    Rotala Wallichi
    Rotala Sp Green
    Rotala Magenta
    Rotala Mini Butterfly
    Rotala Macrandra Green
    Rotala Enie
    Rotala Fujian
    Myriophyllum Guyana Mini
    Glossostigma Elatinoides


    I am using ADA's fertilizer regimen. Currently dosing 5ml of Brighty K and Green Brighty Mineral daily. Lights are on for 10hrs and co2 is at 1bps.

    Thats a lot of Rotala, currius how it looks grown in.
    Maybe you can try to tidy up the wires more using spiroband or tywraps it distracts a bit from the clean look.

    Yeah. The wires are a pain, I'm working on a way to hide them as well as the co2 tank. Thinking about some kind of little table or something.

    I don't think you should try to hide the co2 tank it looks good in the cabinet as it is..

    Thanks. I am just kind of bothered by it as well as the wires. I plan to get the small ADA co2 system and the control timer. I'm just trying to free up any obstructions as much as possible. I also need to make some kind of table to put all of the ferts, fish feeder, and tools on. As of now, ADA has discontinued the clear maintenance stand due to the change in bottle shape.

    The tank is a little over two weeks now and everything is growing well. Starting to get some good color on the left side. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Any chance you could show a side view of the stands the tanks sit on?
    Trying to visualise them, cheers

    Ok. Day 20 today. Added a total of 2 inverts and 15 fish yesterday. 13 ember tetras, 2 amano shrimp, and 2 otocinclus. Tank is doing great, I've never been happier with a tank much less the ease this has been. Makes the hobby so enjoyable when everything works as it should. Also did a much needed trim on the glosso this morning.
