    Aqua Forest Aquarium in San Francisco

    I saw this aquarium shop in www.e-aquaria.com. And since I had a chance to go there this time (business trip), I must make sure I pop by!

    Will like to share these photos with you... Enjoy!

    Shop Front ...


    Me and the Shop Owners: George Lo and Steven Lo (hope I didn't get the names wrong).


    Main Show Tank. Water was a bit cloudy cos' they just added some powder to harden the water. Too soft the water in San Francisco.


    Just next to the main Show Tank is a low maintenance tank. Crypts, Weeping moss, Ferns, Anubias.


    Next tank, a 4 feet High Light Tank [2 x (2 x T5 HO lights)]. Incredible lights - The reflectors are some germany brand one... really good quality. But I believe the casing is a taiwan manufacturer. They must have modified the lights and called it their own brand. Really tempted to get the 2 Feet one!!!


    Closer look at the 3 feet tank. Utricularia sp. in the foreground... can you see the claws in those pods???!!! Kekeke...


    2 Feet... HC Tank. The lights are GreenGlow from ADA 4 x FL(20W). 200 plus US Dollars man!!! And the efficiency is really fantastic. He only switch on 2 tubes!!!


    Another show tank. Just setup not long. It's different from the one seen in the www.e-aquaria.com. I prefer this layout.


    See 36W PL Lights from ADA before? See this!


    They also brought in the ADA Driftwoods!!! Small, Medium, Large... Nice Dark Wood. Now I understand why their tanks in Japan so nice!


    More to follow!

    Cannot post liao ler.. Moderator.. 10 pixs is max! I cannot post anymore pixs!
    ... not that I still have alot of pixs but still!!!

    I was trying to show the t5HO lights they have. Solid stuff. Those german reflectors + incredible german ballast and they even have a built in fan for the lights.. I believe it's to draw out the hot air.

    hjbyeo, are the reflector in this link the same as what you have seen at Aqua Forest Aquarium? This is a parabolic reflector made for T5.

    This is one of the JBJ Nano Cubes.



    This is one of the nanos that ADA is selling. They come in 2 sizes. This one is the smaller one.



    ADA Stainless Steel Outlet. I think it's 43 US Dollars.



    ADA Stainless Steel Inlet. About the same price man!
