  • Steve's Mini M

    Well I've had this stuff sitting around for three months and it's finally time to start a build thread.

    Tank: ADA Mini M (new clearer glass)
    Stand: Custom made from LeeMar via AT
    Filter: Eheim Ecco 2232
    Light Solar Mini M 27 Watt
    Substrate: Aquasoil I, Bacter, Tourmaline, Clear Super (No evil Powersand or decorative sand this time)
    Hardscape: 15 lbs of manten stone
    Co2: 5lb pressurized tank with Sumo Premier regulator, ADA Pollen Glass Mini diffuser
    Ferts: PFERTZ!!!!

    Fauna is undecided. Flora will be glosso or marsilea quadrifolia.

    This tank will be an iwagumi. I'm just waiting on the stand and then the thing gets flooded shortly after. Here are some of the pics with a ton more to follow:

      haha... she could help to spawn some baby rainbows. Mary and I like to keep her shaggy. It fits her personality.

            Yea I had the 5 pounder left over from the old 10 gallon. I figured I might as well use it since it is just collecting dust in the closet. The stand will be a knock off of the ADA mini m. Basically just a boxy rectangle. There will be two holes in the top to run the plumbing.

              Yes this is the kind of thread I have been waiting for.
              Live every day to the fullest you can.
              Because you never know if its going to be your last day.

                I put a couple of 20# free weights in the bottom of my Mini-S stand to make sure it wasn't top-heavy... might want to consider something similar if it is taller and narrower than a standard stand

                  That's a great idea Dan. I'll probably have to do something like that.

                    Stand is here! Lee Mar and Aquatouch really hit a home run. It turned out awesome.

                      Very nice stand. I can't wait to see what you do with the layout! I love Nano aquarium layouts.

                        I scored a 6"x6" chunk of HC off of APC. It's going to be the only plant in this tank until a rescape is done. At least thats the plan. I was considering hairgrass for the back but eventually decided against it. ADA pincettes arrived today. Planting will occur in a few days. I'm gonna work on the hardscape in the meantime.

                          Well this is the final scape that I am going with. I found some E. Belem at AT and it is now gracing the foreground. Hopefully it fills in. It's a bit bare up front.
