    Hello! As I am moving into a new house soon I'm thinking of starting up a brand new tank.

    Right now I am thinking of getting a [90 x 45 x 45] tank.

    As I'm trying to aquascape it to look like a "River landscape" . I'm not sure after the type of filters and lights I should get.

    Can anyone advise me on what type of filters ( Their brand and outflow ) to use and lighting (Brand, Moonlight) to use.

    Appreciate all advises and opinion !

    Re: New Aquascape Tank

    Sort of a new tank of that dimension HAHA!
    I have a 45 x 30 x 30 tank now and it's kinda hard to maintain I guess.
    Heard that a larger tank would be easier !

    What sort of green element LED ?
    And which series of canister filter though

    if got space 2260... 2280 I find that it is just enough for a 3ft..

    I am using pro3 2073 with rainbar (eheim installation set)attached to the 45cm wall.
    I pointed each of three segments at different angles, but still there are some dead spots right under the rain bar, for this area, I used a small internal filter with 2.5w rating. This works as circulation pump, able to trap suspended dirt/particles in the water column and I use this to pump water up to tank from pail during WC.

    Re: New Aquascape Tank

    So now that My new house is almost ready. I'm beginning to do more research for my new tank !

    From what i see, ADA Cube Garden 90 ( 90 x 45 x 45 ) cost $791 from Green Chapter ! Along with their cabinet ( $580 ).

    Lighting wise, I'm waiting for the new ONF lighting ! Forgot how much it cost though. ( Heard that they have a new product coming on in early 2018 with Moonlighting effect)

    I'm still not too sure how am i going to do my aquascape, to do it myself or find someone to build it for me =X .

    For the fish/shrimps i'm gonna put in. Anyone can help me see if it's compatible?

    Tetra : Black Neon or Glowlight

    Catfish : Farlowella Vittata ( Twig Catfish ) Been mesmerized for years!

    Shrimps: Fire Red Shrimp or Golden Shrimp ( Saw some in C328 and Y618 )

    Crayfish: Mexican Dwarf Crayfish ( Not sure if it will attack tankmate or not.... )

    Snail : Assassin Snail ( Get rid of pest snail! )

    Pipefish : Indostomus ( Toothpick fish by Y618 ) This is such a lovely fish.

    I've been thinking of getting microcrab too but i'm not sure if my setup will be ideal for it. Oh well..

    Re: New Aquascape Tank

    Tank wise, you could go custom made for that price or even cheaper. and bigger Or have a look at East Ocean. Not ADA stuff but more wallet friendly and stuff is equally nice.

    Other good places to shop for accessories would be Nature Aquarium and Seaview.

    I would take out the pipefish from the livestock list. They are notoriously hard to feed and mortality is high.

    The crayfish are omnivores so I wouldn't trust bottom dwellers and sleeping fish with them.

    For inspiration, (entertainment in my case) I follow George Farmer

    And Aquapros

    Their projects seem more attainable.
