What makes ada tanks so special? This is a serious question, not a jab at the responses above, or ada in general. I have never seen one, so thought I would ask.

Quality, size and price. Everyone thinks everything ADA is outragously expensive, but the mini series is not that bad. The frameless edges are nicely beveled, silicone bead is small and straight, and the clarity is good.

i really wanted one of thoose to try a pico reef, but two things stopped me
1. they dont sell them in the uk
2. a pico reef in that tiny thing would be rock solid to keep alive
but for freshwater tank they look cool
because of the shape of the tank i would advise either a nice open hillside style or a grassland style, imo dont think they would work well with dense planting

Rimless, Clear, Almost invisible bead of silicone, Beveled edges on the glass, and freaking clean!

i like the redsea. it has curved edges, is really small, and comes with a decent enough light to get you started, and the price is right.

I have 2 red sea tanks, and they are sleek. I bought a MELODY red sea but the seller didnt even pack it and it arrived in a thousand pieces.

Red sea rocks.........
