As some of you may already know I have purchased my new tank. It's an Aquaone Aquaopti 85 with Inspire 60 cabinet.
Due to the quick sale of my Juwel vision 180 I had to set it up fast and 'rough' just to get my fish back in a swimming around.
As you can see I had to put a makeshift filter in there at the moment. I have no biological colony at present. Just what is in the plants and eco complete maybe so I'm testing for ammonia and changing water daily. The JBL e1501 canister would be too powerful for this tank at nearly 20x turnover and so I am looking in to the Ehiem Ecco pro range.
The internal is so quiet though. The thought of the hum of the canister is making me cringe.
The plan is to mount a spray bar and use a diffuser for misting placed in the tank. I can always rig the inline up if I'm not happy with the way this pans out but with a spray bar in this size tank I don't see any reason why the co2
would not mix well enough. The only reason for an inline would be to keep things out of the tank which if it bugs me enough ill change it.
Also using a makeshift light unit that is actually for an Aquanano 40. The plan was to rest the an old Juwel T5 fixture across the top until my new LED
came but it sold too quickly. There is no co2
hooked up yet. Had to use a couple of heaters just to keep the temp at 25 as they are for smaller tanks. I still need to buy a heater.
