Joining the club! Haven't planted yet. Also sorry the tank is still terribly cloudy.

I'm going to be using a marineland single bright led that I got for 20 bucks. I'm pretty sure is the equivalent of the beamsworks that's commonly been used.

I went back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to filter this tank or not. Finally decided to throw in a hagen elite mini I had sitting around. Using a tetra preset heater for now as well.

Also would like to say I'm amazed by the quality of these Deep Blue Professional tanks.

Ever seen any of their glass lids before?

Not sure if this is the STANDARD Deep Blue Professional Glass Canopy or the Deep Blue Professional TransLumen Glass Canopy.

I missed the model number when I took pictures of the box, but that lid in the photo will fit for a 20G Long, 29G Standard or their 37G High tanks.

I have a Aqueon Versa-Top™ but after seeing the Deep Blue version in person I might grab one next time.

Note: Check out the EDGES of the glass.

I am considering one of these tanks. I really like the size. The only heaters I've seen on the thread have been a couple preset Tetra heaters. Are most of you running this tank without a heater?

One thing I hate about glass covers from Versa Top and Marineland is the hinge is brown and this one is clear. I love that. I may need to get one for my 18g.

18g (Red Cherry Neo Shrimp | Malawa Shrimp)
7.5g (Yellow Neo Shrimp)
3.2g (Pumpkin Neo Shrimp)
2g (Snails)
11.4g (new home soon for the Pumpkin Neos)

Didn't even notice the hinges on the Deep Blue Canopies where "clear". The polished edges are what impressed me. Also it looks like the DBP glass is different than the Versa, but unless I get one side to side I'm not going to be able to tell.



Glad I took to time to open up the box, but I'll have to stop by the shop to get the model number to see if it's the standard or research grade.

I don't think I would go without some sort of lid on a nano DBP tank due to the evaporation rate.

I've never seen these tanks anywhere. I'm sure going to consider one of these if I decide to add another tank.

Right now I'm just working with the DB cubes.

Make sure you get a Fluval prefilter sponge! That is the correct light.
