Hi


So this is the start of my obsession.
It all started with a friend making a joke about me having to buy a ADA 120P - I took it too seriously...

So my tank got delivered on the 12th of June and it took me about a month to sell the old tank to make space for this one and get all the other goodies that I needed together...

Tank specs:

ADA 120P
2kg CO2 with SAGA Reg.
Cyrex 54W t5 unit, 6 tubes - 3 x Aquastar 10k, 3 x Skye White 8.8k
ADA Style cabinet with "Plumb Tree" finish
Hydor inline 300W heater
Eheim 2076 and Tetratec 1200EX


Some pictures to follow...

Had 2 great friends over to help with it all and once the hard scape was done we ended up with something like this...

Looking great!

Missed this journal somehow. Thankfully it made the Facebook page so I spotted it.

Marvellous...looking forward to further updates. That cabinet is a very good looking piece of furniture.

looks great Jakkal, good hardscape layout, Hygrophila 'Araguaia' would fit in well for a contrast in texture..
can you open the reactor to clean it?
Unfortunately not, but it is quick and easy to disconnect and pull a brush cleaner through it...
