Thread: New setups

  1. #1

    Default New setups

    For some reason I was not able to log into my account past 2 weeks, but it works now so I can give y'all an update.

    I've waited around 6-8 months to set these 2 system up due to how cost heavy these were.
    First up
    Aquarium: Ada 90p
    Filter: Ehiem pro with stainless steel Lilly pipe and overflow intake
    Light: 2 kessil tuna sun a160 we
    The stand was made by Andrew Barchini (member of Houston cichlid club) -and yes I went to Houston as an excuse to get out of town to get the stand. It's an Ada style stand with 3/4 inch plywood. */currently the doors won't close lol*/
    Substrate: 3 bags of 9L controsoil black with fine granule size [3mm] */mistake in my end, would rather have bought the extra fine[1mm] granule size/*
    Scaping martial used was serui stones
    - It's an iwagumi style scape, currently cycling the setup before planting. Will do dwarf hair grass.

    Second up
    Aquarium: Mr aqua 12 gallon
    Filter: Ehiem
    Light: diy lighting stand using closet organizer material from home depot, and it's a current USA led
    Substrate: black diamond sand with Ada Amazonia
    --some brand of heater
    I'm not sure which company the stand is made by

    The ada tank crashed the first week and had algae everywhere due to too much light and nutrients but its back on the right track, and the 125 long is having a blue green algae issue for the past month other than that heres an update on all 4 od the aquariums.

    It'll be a while from now but what do you guys think about stocking the 125 with blue dimond discus? the 125 is the very last picture.

    The setups are coming along nicely!

    I think most planted aquarium folks have similar issues, so don't worry. You'll get control of these issues and soon you will be able to relax and enjoy your hard work more.

    Diamond discus within the 125 would be stunning! You definitely have the room and setup for them!
    Thank you,
