i dont know the exact price but must be something like:
2 sheets of MDF around 60 euro
some screws 5 or 6 euro
i already had the paint & woodglue etc in house so no need to buy a new can of paint
So maybe to build it new would be around 100 euro all combined.
The Otocinclus always reminds me of this very old video (14 years ago, getting old..... :P)
I really love these fish in planted tanks/good and healthy environments and they are really cool to have in a group.
But also always think about the origin of them which always feels weird to see....
First used some bags filled with lava rocks for the back to get some height for the soil buildup.
Also used a cheap (1 euro) pipe insulation to put on the front glass. Just to make sure i won't hit it with some rocks etc :P
After that i put in the rest with the rocks, wood and...
No concerns here regarding the MDF. I've made a similar one back in 2009 for my other/old tank (100x50x50cm).
Its moved from house etc, positions, and moving to make place for this new 120P.
Never had issues with it. Made sure all parts are covered with the paint layers and inside the...
Running the Eheim 4+ 600 (2275) on my 120P for a month now. Later when my old tank is gone all add the eheim 2217 to it (now running on the old tank untill i have sold it...)
But the 2275 is running great. Nice outflow, very quiet, nice filter media capacity, easy in use.
Had the Oase 850T...
Same like my previous DIY "ADA" cabinet I made one for the 120P.
First plan was making a 3D model so I knew I got the dimensions etc. correct and get a visual idea on the screen.
Small thing I changed this time was the front panel. This one is now aligned and in front of the top panel...
After a couple of years it was time to get a new tank :cool: (old tank is still running for now).
So what upgrade did i make?
Tank: ADA 120P
Cabinet: Custom made one in the style of ADA
Light: Chihiros Wrgb 2 120
Filter: Eheim 4+ 600 (2275) + Eheim classic 2217 (from the previous setup)...
I noticed a photo with the output of a tube mounted to the light stand. I couldn't find the used dosing system/pump in this topic via the search.
So i was wondering: which pump/system is connected on the other side of that tube? :P
I have still a GHL dosing pump here. But it's not a "smart" version. The screen brightness is going down after these years so reading it is also hard.
In the past i already replaced the screen/board for a new one. But it expensive.
So i was wondering: would it be possible to convert this "old"...
