Do any of you know if any of the NYC/NJ area stores carry rimless Mr. Aqua 11.4 gallons or the 13.3 bowfront. A friend of mine said he had a rimless I could use - but when I picked it up today - it has a rim on the bottom and black silicone in the corners. Not really the look I was looking for.
If not, I will just order from MarineDepot and wait the week for shipping...
For the cost of the toll and gas to NJ, you might as well pay the $8 shipping on Marine Depot unless FEDex or UPS has a bad track record. I don't see people discounting this where you would save anyway.
Yeah - it is the same for the 11.4 on both - although shipping is a little less for the 11.4 than the larger sizes.
Maybe I am being too hard on the tank that I have - what does everyone think? I was initially not a fan of the black silicone in the corners. But the more I look at it, the more I am OK with it. Sorry for the crappy pic; it is just on a black trashcan for the picture, the stand I am going to use is not in yet.
This is my first tank, and I will likely upgrade to bigger and nicer tanks in the future - just wanted something small to get my hands wet Maybe save the extra money and put it towards the next tank, or maybe CO2 for this one if I go that way at some point.
Thanks for the opinions everyone. I am going to give this tank a shot.
I might play around with some aquascaping today and ask for opinions. I am going for a root buttress look with a couple of pieces of ghostwood/manzanita. I am still waiting on my Aquasoil - but might use some plain black gravel first just to get an idea for placement.
