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.
