default Aquarium NA 90cm

le Jeu 26 Jan 2012 - 11:55
Hello to you all,

After a first draft with an aquarium of 110cm, I'll move to something more pro.

I've been seeing different brands and products to choose something with quality. Among the choices are the ADA and ELOS and NA(naturalaquario.com).

Starting at the aquarium I opted for the 90cm because of the space available in the house.

The aquarium of 90cm ADA costs 490eur extra-clear glass, the ELOS not have that size tank, but the system for an 70cm aquarium system is 1812.51eur and is complete but does not include light system, at those prices , only for the Italians, lol. NA aquarium cost 150.52eur extra clear and 72.19eur for the regular glass. It is clear by what I chose, the NA normal glass! Do not know if the quality of the aquarium will have the ADA, but the quality is quite good of NA and I have no complaint, and extra-clear glass makes a big difference in the aquarium photos, but who see with the naked eye the difference is not so much and did not justify the price.

Then for the mobile/wood cabinet, ELOS because we know the prices so forget about it, and the ADA did not find for sale in Portugal but in italy 565eur costs, and even if it is available in Portugal would surely not have the quality that NA does, because it has the frieze stainless steel in the mobile and cost only 198.27eur, and what everyone saw good reviews for furniture made ​​of NA.

I'll try to post the developments of the project

Some photos:









For now it is just the wood cabinet, that i'm by the way very happy with it. I decided to order the cabinet allready prepared for a saltwater aquarium, there are some holes when i decided to get into the salt system, and there is also some empty space for the SUMP.


I have two more photos to post, the Arm to hold the light system and the protective foam.

The Arm to hold the light system of the NA is hollow square tube unlike the ADA that is round, but it's just a detail, because the functionality is the same and aesthetics itself is not very different I think. The Arm to hold the light system of the ADA as I know, it's massive pipe, and the price is also massive: D, but turns out to be tougher and not give the weight of light system, let's see how the NA behaves.

here are the pictures:





I already have placed the aquarium, and I am already imagining the aquarium set up, but there is still some time, I still have to put the light system, and buy some products. Can't wait to have it water full..

Here are the photos ....

Hello,

It's a very beautiful project ! Your furniture is very chic ! I'm keen on this style of thing !
Then, I have a question ; What do you want hold in your aquarium ?

However, I don't know if plenty of people can speak english in this forum...
But I will follow your project because it's very interesting according to my mind ##27

Good Luck !

Do you know speak little bit French ?
In any case your project in the sight really nice even if I do not understand everything as for the differences of the equipment between the USA and France. I hope that we shall soon have of the other one photos with fishes ^^
I do not know if a lot of people speaks English and will have the courage to answer. Well, I apologize for my basic English...
For the price differences I think that that has to be according to the type of lighting and brand of the aquarium (if it is side or not)... But a tank remains a tank...
So, what biotope you want to make?

Yes, sure but I can note that lot of French' students are not the best in this language ! Sometimes it is very alarming, like in french spelling...

Hello again,

Do you know speak little bit French ?
Yes, a little bit (study in school), but not enough to tell everything i want. So i use English, and i hope you understand.

So, what biotope you want to make?
This will be a planted aquarium, like Takashi Amano does, a Nature Aquarium.

What do you want hold in your aquarium ?
Little fish, like Neon, and Cardinals.

Here i have more photos, the light system. This is 2xAqua Sun 2 with 150W 8000k lamp, they are pure Stainless Steel, that cost me 2x154,15eur + 24,59eur(lamp) from NA(naturalaquario.com). The ADA light system is much more expensive (412eur in Portugal), and the reflector is not as good as NA, and ADA is only painted aluminum. Even if NA is not so good at marketing and product finishing in not so delicate, the prices and functionality does do their job, i for the price of 1 ADA, i got 2 from NA.

I bought 2x150W and you may think that for a 90cm aquarium is too much, and that true, but like i said I’m planning for a Reef system in the future, so i decided to speed up the process, and i which a fast growing aquarium.

some photos:













Next will be the hardscape, not decided yet what to use or do about...

Soil bacteria Containing many different kinds of micro organisms in a dormant state. Aqua Soil Bacteria improves the conditions in the substrate and the aquarium water and then stabilizes the eco-system within the aquarium.


Well got some more photos of the evolution. No algae at the moment, but they will came i believe, it is just a matter of time Very Happy

Plants are now with some underwater developments, but still not totally adapter to the underwater environment, this will take one more week.

Hello.

No much time to keep the post updated very often.

The algae have appear, as i supposed. My shrimps all died. I think i'm having a problem with my water, it is killing all living animals and may be also influence the plant grow. I hope my water gets better so i can put algae eaters.

Some photos today. 1/3/2012

Hello,

Have you got test of water ?

Did you wait many weeks before put shrimps in your scape ? There is a cycle in an aquarium before put fish or other animals. ##27

Hello

No i dont test the water. I put shrimps on the second week. I think the cycle has been made.

I really don't know what is the problem, but i think it is getting better the water conditions. By now there are 3 alive shrimps at least, so this means something, i now i'm confident to put some more.

I decided to trim all the plants, i now just wait to see them grow. Also disable one NA Aqua Sun 2, remaining only 1. I will rely only in 150W, cause the light have got a very good reflector.

Hello !

Your woods are very beautiful !

The cycle hasn't been made no... It is necessary to wait almost 3 or 4 weeks on average... And you must have some tests... : NO3, PH, GH, KH, NO2 and PO4 in an aquarium with plants !
