Not really sure how interested I am in it, but I was looking around at tanks and saw these, but cannot find any actual reviews.

That's a nice nano tank. Sorry I have not used a tank like that.

Never seen them before, but they look very nice. Price isn't bad, either. If you get one, be sure and make a journal.

The price looks amazing to me. At least compared to the Schruber Wrights (sp?) or ADAs. I mean, I love the look of those two rimless tanks, but wow they are expensive!

Only problem is, getting a top seems like it would be difficult.

Its pretty easy to cut lexan (polycarbonate) sheets to fit a small rimless tank. I have them on mine and feel that they don't detract from the rimless look all that much

The price difference between the 6.1 gallon and 8.7 is hardly anything too. I like the height on them too. I may take a chance and order one.

But my concern still is not having a top. Without a top, certainly would have to stray from a Betta. And any fish that might be a potential jumper.

I suppose I could just have two tanks. Get an Evolve 4 for a Betta, and one of these for some other fish. Just really want a Betta for some reason LOL.

Seems like a good build. Free shipping too!

OK Ima buy one. http://www.truaqua.com/high-clarity-...um-hca-18.html The one I'm looking at is the Mini L size and it costs the same with shipping, only it's high clarity glass

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.
