Hi guys,

Finally, going to sale my beloved Ada 60p for something bigger; an optiwhite 80x40x40.

Plans? Making it in the top 50 at Iaplc 2021. :)lol:)

Received the black cabinet today, now I’m starting to look for new filtration, what would you guys recommend (it’s 128liters tank)? Looking for oase, jbl or aquael ultramax for now.

‘to be continued ;)

I would go for the quael ultramax 2000. I have them running on a 70× 60 x 45 tank and a70x 70x 45 tank and they are superb. Silent with great flow and the price is reasonable. I would, however, suggest not buying one from outside the UK ( as I did for my first one).

Thanks @Onoma1 for your feedback, won’t the 1500 be more than enough for my tank? :)

Back in black; vivid 2 aka ‘the beast’ is on place;


Thr tank looks amazing. You can reduce the flow on the pump (although I haven't tried this) so for the price difference I would go for the 2000. At full bore with a lilly pipe it a bit much but its fine with the aquael return or the spray bar.

I have been involved in planted tanks for just under two years. There are others on the forjm with far more knowledge!

Looking forward to this mate and would the oase 600t do the job ? George has only one on his aquascaper 1200. And i have no doubt you could do it if wanted

oh la la, c'est magnifique :)👌
Haha merci! ;)
Awesome, go for it ;)


No don't do that, you may regret it :eek:
I bet there'll be a time when you'll want to scape something that size again
Will try my best :p, thanks Tim. Nah, unfortunately that 60p definitively lacks depth...but I still got some cool nanos to come. :cool:

The 80x40 footprint is perfect for that single light unit. Find that 90 is awkward to accommodate as edges just don’t get enough light.

@CooKieS for the win in the IAPLC 2021!! 🥳
Agreed Geoffrey. :happy: Haha thanks for your support, I'll be happy to be in the top 200 honestly but it's good to have goals.:hilarious:

Are the Oase filters silent? I Don't need the heater but the 600 would be a nice option for sure. :cigar: Bit pricey in comparaison to the Aquael...we'll see, still looking for the best bang for the bucks option.

Good points :) :thumbup:
Still have the wrgb 2 90cm option too...actually the vivid 2 would be enough for an 90cm tank but it's all about the kind of scape as Geoffrey said.

Got the shades on it but still would't put this tank near my sofa o_O

Cheers guys

Yeah my 250 silent and the oase filters have great reviews its the prefilter what do it for most people as so handy and means only have to access main filter ince in a blue moon if clean prefilter sponges on maintenance day or keep some spares and just swap them out takes seconds so easy and convenient. I will be sticking with oase, george farmer said he had never cleaned main compartment yet .

I think geordie scaper did a full review on 600 and shouwed you noise it makes etc said was very silent. I have one waiting for my 900.
