Hello everyone, i am in the process of planning for the ADA 60p mist type r and just want to run some of my decisions by you guys (and girls). Here is where i am so far:
Tank: ADA 60p Mist Type R
Stand: ADA style DIY stand (will make a thread on that later)
Lighting: Nova extreme 2x 24watt T5HO. This will be hung on an ADA style DIY light stand, but i don't know how high above the water to hang it.
Co2: Paintball Co2 tank and regulator, GLA Atomic in-line co2 diffuser 12/16mm, Atomic bubble counter with integrated check valve.
Heater: Hydor ETH 200 In-line Heater- 1/2"-200 W
Lily pipes: Borneo Wild Stainless Steel inflow and outflow-13mm
Filter: Need some help with this one. Currently i have decided on the Eheim Ecco 2236 because of 2 things. 1) Easy priming 2) THe quick disconects are conected to pump housing allowing me to have more space to put my CO2 and heater in-line.
Some things to consider: My stocking will be moderately heavy, and all of the fish are small and like slow flowing water. This will be 2.5 wpg and i will be using mostly low or moderate light plants. Do you agree with my choice?
Filter media: Seachem Purigen and Matrix. Will this be enough or should i use carbon as well?
Thanks in advance to everyone who checks out my plan and helps me with my decisions
