I'm torn on this one - my first reaction was PERFECT! a big nano (but still small overall) with filtration and led lights that is long instead of a cube!
The more I look at it - about the size of a standard 5 gallon rectangle for $99. no background or gimmick to the style like an Edge or anything, could I build this for about that price?
-Get a 5 gallon old fashioned black frame tank (or rimless if you can). add:
-glass top (or old style hood if you prefer, or even leave it open)
-a submergable (new word?) led strip light - saw one today at Petsmart that had a black frame to hide it, very thin and could almost disappear on the front edge of a framed tank.
- smallest canister filter you can find or small internal like the Fluval u1.
Seems like a very similar result, with more viewing area as the one end isn't capped with the filter and other works. No light fixture sticking up either.
Time to check google and see how cheap I can find those pieces
