Going to buy some cheap acryllic lily pipes off a guy on TPT. But no lol. Not going to spend a premium on any more ADA glassware. Totally not worth it.

I ordered a 45-p a few weeks ago, but I'm still waiting for them to get it from Germany or where ever they get their tanks from now.

Alright, very cool.

Anyways.. I'm trying to get an aluminum plate so I can start building the light for it. Dimensions are 45cm X 27cm X 30cm. This is LxWxD right? So the footprint would be 45cm x 27cm?

Interested in the acrylic inflow/outflow. I like my Ada glassware, but the cost is way too high. I just haven't found anything that compares.

Got my 60p today and walked in while they were doing a photo shoot. Really neat. Anyways:

All boxed up-


After taking the top off-


Some awesome seam work and crytal clear glass. I'm still amazed by the fact I can see straight through 14 some inches of glass. The pad underneath is a Fluval tank pad that came free with my filter lol.



And then the ADA logo-


Hats off to the folks at ADG houston.
