Amen to that!!! I love the look of the design but the functionality leaves a lot to be desired. The bigger version may fix some of this by adding height for access, but they are almost impossible to reach the corners in. I plan on waiting to see what more people think before I run out an get one.

I even have duckweed in my water bong!

i've found the edges quite easy to maintain. the light is quite directional and doesn't really hit the glass much so i've never cleaned the glass on any of the edges if cared for. the only thing is if you want to change the scape you need to take out some water to get your hand in so make sure youre happy with the scape before you fill. and also when you top up the tank there will be bubbles in the top glass, i use a bendy brush to get rid of the bubbles. i think the trick with these tanks is to keep low maintenance, slow growing plants.

Left is the old CFL bulb model? I still can't find any $27 old models @ Petco, think they're all snatched up.

This tank is so nice with all the Anubias! What will the maintenance be?

1. CO2 or Excel or Nothing for a carbon source?
2. Fertilization regime EI or just Trace Elements alone maybe?
3. Water changes?
4. Will it be prone to algae since Anubias are slow growing?

Please give info since I would like to replicate it! Thanks!

Dude you are a pro. Love love love those tanks. Can you tell me what fish and how many you stocked in each tank? I've got 5 white clouds in my 6 gal with cherry shrimp. I might want to look into some sort of micro fish or something. More than 5 would be fun. Or maybe even just a pair of dwarf cichlids or something. Anyway give me the details!
