    Weight distribution/mat for rimless tank

    Hey everyone, I'm about to start scaping a 60p. Before I get started I'm curious if the mat provided with this tank is up to the job as it's a few mm shorter than the tank footprint. I purchased the tank from a fellow aquascaper (eBay) who had already cut the mat. Ada 60p footprint (60x30cm)...

    60P Variations

    Introduction: This journal is about creating different scape concepts in 60x45x36 cm ADA60P tank.

    Any salvaging my 60-P?

    A while back, my brand new ADA Cube Garden 60-P cracked on the base due to forgetting to place a soft surface underneath (a very expensive and painful lesson learnt).

    Hello All, I have been away from the hobby for a number of years, after a moving house, as it just wasn’t suitable to set up my old tank, so reluctantly had to get rid of my old tank and all own old equipment. Following a recent change in my personal life, I needed to do something that...
