Default Ramos' ADA Mini-M

Started this tank a few weeks ago, was growing emmersed to begin with but switched the substrate and decided to fill it and get it running. I love it, it's such a step up from all the other tanks I've owned.

Tank: ADA Mini-M

Light: ADA Solar Mini-M

Filter: Eheim 2211 via ADA Mini V-1 and Mini P-1

Substrate: ADA Aquasoil Amazonia

Co2: Victor VTS-253A w/ 2.5# tank Swagelok NV (~2.5bps)

Ferts: GLA Ferts, EI method


This is everything after I first got it, before setup:




When I started it up, before I switched the substrate (Eco in there at that point)




Right after filling it, at it's new location, stand I built for a 45-P I was going to get, but decided on a Mini-M instead (camphone pic, sorry!):


I have since added a temp hardscape (awaiting scaping stones from 'screename') and some stems to help cycle, and it actually looks decent! I'll have some new pictures up as soon as we get an SD card for the new DSLR that just arrived in the mail
Let me know what you guys think!

Here are a couple pics of it just a few moments ago, with the fast growing stems (Rotala rotundifolia) and temporary hardscape.

We have a 46g bow reef but I've only ever posted that online once, and it was on TPT.
Thanks for the compliments!

DSLR pics as promised







Finally found some rocks for this thing, can't wait to get em in and see what I can do with them. I think I might actually keep a little of the Rotala in here too, I ended up not liking it much in my other tank but for some reason it looks nicer in here... maybe it's the light?

Snapped these just now, kinda crappy I guess my click-n-shoot doesn't take tank pics well when the sunlight is out! Anyways, these are pics of the Hydrocotyle verticillata just to show it, and then top shot just to show the progress of the UG.
