would you gravel over the aquasoil Ed? I seem to be finding different schools of thought on this.
Matt Holbrook-Bull said:Ill give it a test. I wasnt planning on putting anything under it though.
ADA stands for Aqua Design Amano, japanese manufacturer of some of the best equipement you can get for your tank, the catalogue is available from Aqua Essentials.alex b said:Could someone please advise what is an ADA catalogue? and where I get one?
Maybe that why I haven't got any ADA stuff LOL I do have Aquasoil in my shrimp tank for some reason! not that it needs it LOL and my planted has plain gravel! go figure lolaaronnorth said:and dearest!
Well said 8)aaronnorth said:aquasoil is the only thing i think i would buy as part of the ADA product chain, anything else it would be some cheap (or cheaper brand) for example drop checkers, Â£40 ADA, or Â£4 ebay... hhmmm hard decision
Ed Seeley said:A lot of the links were to AquaEssentials website, one of our sponsors. They have just updated their website so I imgaine that has ruined lots of the links - I'll try to update them at some point when I have time (don't hold your breath!!!!!). If you go to their site and search for the product it will appear. Aqua Essentials sell the ADA catalogues too.
To be fair the only ADA products I recomended were Aquasoil and Powersand. After setting up a tank without I'd use Powersand again when setting up another tank. I do know some people do swear by the ADA glassware though. Apparently the bubbles are finer. I'm never going to stump up the cash to find out personally though...
