Fishies_in_Philly at least you kept your mangos in a group of 3, just like Mr. Amano suggests....LOL

sayurasem Nice GLA. Join the club

nerdariostomp I hear you need to use a spray bottle daily and add citrus fruit to raise the acidity for the mangos to breed

Looks nice. I am beyond dissapointed that I missed out on the gla deal. Totally thought Mr aqua was the only one and now I wait for weeks...or build one hehe

Maybe try getting a small dither-fruit such as strawberries or kiwis, that should ease the mango's stress and cut down on jumping

You're right. GLA rounds 14.17in to 15, and 10.24in to 11. Maybe GLA was including the glass in their measurement or something... If they did, then they may have also rounded 5.5g to 6.

The 36-L seems like a much better deal. Not only does it hold more water, but it is also almost half the price of the Mini M. Both are clear glass, though. I guess the major decision point here would be the brand name.

The 5.5 high clarity (mini-m style) is a great price.
