I need some new ideas. I'm thinking about getting rid of my 29. For some reason I'm tired of it, or maye I just don't have an imagination of what to plant it with, or maybe I just want to buy something new.:) It has no depth.... I am thinking about getting a cube because I have seen some cool looking designs in a few. Probably the smallest I would want is an ADA 30-c, but could go bigger. Whats a good size? For lighting I could use my 2x55 watt AHSupply kit, or I could get a new light, but I don't want to spend a fortune. I would like to hang a fixture or have something rest on the tank. This makes using the AHsupply kit tough unless I build a frame to put them in.

I'm also torn between doing an Iwagumi rock scape, low maintenace crypt/anubius/ferns/moss tank, or a high light stem plant tank....

Anyone have any cube garden pics they would like to share for ideas? :)

Another question...Rena XP2 with an hydor inline too big for a 30-c cube? I may also use an inline PVC diffusor, and that along with a heater would slow the flow quite a bit. I'm not sure I could fit all of that in a stand though. Maybe I should save up for one of those cal aqua inline diffusors or just use a disk in the tank.

There was just a thread somewhere the other day about reducing the size of tubing on canister filters. Could someone help me find it. I would want to use 1/2" glass pipes on this tank, but the filter is 5/8"...probably not a big deal to reduce to 1/2"

Fishandturlejunkie - I have been considering the inline diffusor. I wish they were not so expensive! I won't have a CO2 tank in the stand so I should have room for a canister. The CO2 line comes through the wall from another tank with a manifold:)

Texgal I think you may be right about that vortex thing;) I was thinking about some kind of eheim? Which model would be good for this size tank?

Craig - looking forward to pictures

Also, Does anyone know why there is such a huge price increase from the ADA 30-C to the 45-C? $70 vs. $275! I was thinking about something a little bigger than the 30-c. Like a 16" cube or something.

Tex, what was that aquarium shop you were talking about a week or two ago? Edit-found it. http://www.fishtankshop.com/
