Default Update time!!!

Many new things have been developing at GLA, so much so I have no time to play with you guys, but its for the greater good I believe. So lets see!

1. We decided to remove live plants from the site due to amount of time needed to pack and ship plants. We never wanted to make profits on live plants and thats why we are so inexpensive for live friends. However, we will still house a selection of plants for our locals and installs.

2. There will be a complete new line of tanks and cabinets coming in the fall/winter. +/- a month or so. This has been something we have been working on for a good while now. This will also bring new lighting as well including MH and Stainless steel T5HO fixtures, light hangers etc. These new tanks will be incredible.



3. New driftwood. No more manzanita... I dont need to say much, its bad ass. The wood will speak for itself. This will be ready this weekend.



4. There will be a new LED from Atomic that is in prototype stage now but I have a light to show you folks. Its all machined aluminum with an ABS fully adjustable arm.

Sexay!!
Too bad about not carrying plants, y'all were my go-to plant people.
Also, got any more details on the new tanks? (gallons, dimensions, low-iron)?

O,
Very curious about Cal Aqua update to the glassware. Any more detail? As you know, I am a big fan of CalAqua inflow and outflow. Got a few sets of those from you.

Orlando,
That is very exciting news, this is Daryl Thomason, I was looking forward to a new shipment of plants, but we certainly understand. Can't wait to see some of the new lighting and fittings.

Thanks all! We decided it was very easy to obtain plants at any given second these days. However we found it much more logical to stock the more important items that are hard to find.

Tanks,cabinets,lighting,wood,substrate and co2 were what we really wanted to focus on. Stay tuned!!!!

PS.
We will update Cal Aqua photos asap

PSS

Here is the LED in its early testing days. The light housing is different in this photo. It has been refined 100X over after this photo was taken.

Wow! Is it really growing a huge mass of Syngonanthus and some other troublesome plants on its own ?
