You could probably just make one out of egg crate. I had the pleasure of doing that this morning after breaking my glass top and having my cat go for a swim last night. Took all of 3 minutes to measure and cut it.
Yup, I was basically planning to make it a square shrimp bowl. I just love the way it looks and tiny glass tanks seem VERY hard to come by. Agreed it's WAY too small to be called a betta tank, my betta is in a 6.6 gallon and that seems about right. Bummer about the light, I was hoping to take a stab at growing HC in this thing.
What did you end up doing for lighting radioman?
I used a 13w cfl but that was too much light for me and I algae.
Dang that Mr. Aqua is nice too. But I always wonder what people do for lids on these things? I can't have an open top tank here in earthquakeland with a cat drinking from the tank.
I have cats and require lids, as well (not that it stops them from taking a drink in the openings, but still...).
I've heard of people having lids made for tanks like these. I think glass shops can cut out any shape you want. I've thought about doing it myself since so many of the really cute small tanks have open tops.
