Any progress on this tank Jake? I'm interested in this size or the 14 gallon myself. Probably the 8 for my office. Are you going to use the truaqua light? I see those are $50 righ tnow, would 1 suffice for low to medium plants (probably no CO2)?
Have you seen the nano tanks of their in the clearance section? A 6.6 gallon and 14 gallon, $24 and $44 shipped? I was thinking those might be nice too, and you could probably run the finnex px360 or other filter with it. Any thoughts?
Most all-in-one tanks are a bad idea. I'd say those aren't a great deal. The high-clarity and bowfronts are great, though.
My philosophy: buy exactly what you want. Don't buy half of what you want while compromising over $20-$30. That's what makes this hobby so great - the waiting period. Wait til you find exactly what you want and you'll be happier with the end product.
thanks Jake, I am interested in the Euro style, possibly high clarity tanks. It would be for my new office so I still have a couple of weeks to see what might fit. Its just that their price was amazing, but being on clearance makes me wonder why. I like a panoramic view of a rectangular tank over a cube, I have an Ebi at home and while I like it I wish it were longer. I was liking the Mr Aqua bookcase tanks for their length.
AquaTop also has some rectangle tanks that are high-clarity - definitely give them a look on the site.
Have finally started playing more with the scape of this bowfront and believe I'm nearly settled on something. Hope to photograph it and get it planted ASAP! The move really zapped me for energy and I'm just now getting caught back up.
