    ADA 45P - My newest masterpiece

    So after spending quite a good amount of time watching aquascape videos on youtube, I finally pulled the trigger on the ADA 45P. I started off first 2 weeks with DSM, but then needed to add water for some blue dream shrimps. Here are some specs as well as plant selection for this tank. I am still waiting for glass lily pipes that I just ordered to hook it to eheim 2211.

    ADA 45P
    Aquatek CO2 setup with 5lb tank (1-2 bubble per sec)
    Eheim 2211
    Finnex Ray2
    Cheap Wing light (it is okay for growing plants)
    Amazonia substrate powder
    White pool filter sand
    Seiryu stones

    Plants:
    Buce brownie sugar
    Buce brownie red
    Buce mini red
    Buce centipede
    Monte carlo
    HC cuba
    Glossostigma
    Hydrocotype tripartita "Japan"
    Staurogyne repens
    Downoi
    AR mini
    Dwarf hairgrass
    Rotala mexicana goias
    Mini xmas moss
    Mini fissiden
    Mini pellia

    Chilli rasboras
    Blue dream shrimps

    That's quite an impressive slope. The only thing I don't like is the mismatched rocks in the bottom right. Everything else is stellar! good work man.

    Oh you are talking about the one with moss attached to it? Yes it is not supposed to be there, i just put that there to compare the growth of this moss under high light and CO2 vs super low light in my other tank. It turned out that algae like to grow on moss under high light and CO2 condition. I ran into a little green hair algae problem as well

    Just an update after 4 weeks. Got a little green hair algae problem, but so far everything is running smoothly. Excel and flourish are being dosed every other day with co2 running at 2bps. I am still waiting to get the lily pipe to plug in my eheim classic 250. I added 14 exclamation point rasboras instead of chili rasboras. And 2 of my blue shrimps are berried

    I am still trying to organize the plants, cuz some of them send runners to everywhere and it looks like a mess some how lol. Hopefully, once it all fully grown it will look better

    As far as I know, tigers die at 78 and are best kept at 70-72. But I'm no specialist.
