For those on the fence about zen...

Go for it! Fabulous tank, almost as good as ADA. $25 for the equivalent of a Mini-S. Even has a lid and clips! Came with a garden mat, too. I'm going to use a sponge filter for now, and I think I'll use a Biomaxx to replace it. Or a zoomed 501. Which should I go for? Picture time!

Hmm, that's interesting. $25 is dirt cheap for that too! The website doesn't mention the lids or the mats. That's a very tempting deal....

I've been eyeing these for some time now. Thank you for the great picture, there is almost no info out there on these. Which is crazy to me, look at that beautiful tank!

Awesome!

Shipping is free.

This was high on my list of considerations.. The lack of info and several bad reviews on their larger tanks influenced me to go Aqua Top.

I can tell now that it wouldn't have been a mistake to go with this brand, though. Thanks man.

Use a zoomed on a 3.4g.

Really? When I last checked it was $30 shipped.... It maybe changed, or I saw it on a deal.
