I have a 12 gallon Edge, and I agree. It's currently my only tank. I love it, but maintenance inside the tank is sort of a PITA. I'm injecting CO2 and dosing ferts and have upgraded my lighting. I'm getting great growth, and I don't mind the trimming and planting, but doing everything through the little hole at the top and using 1 hand only can be challenging at times. You are also quite limited on lighting due to the design.

It looks fantastic though, and I love it. I now want a rimless for high tech and want to move this back to lower tech. I don't want to get rid of the Edge though I just want a 2nd tank. I'm glad I got the 12 over the 6 due to height. I have far more room to grow plants, and I can have 2x the fish. The footprint is the same.
