Couesfanatic well, here is an update 2 weeks after the last picture. I think I'm going to buy another one of these tanks soon, maybe two more. Anyone have an update?

MSG 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.

I have a Aqueon Versa-Topô but after seeing the Deep Blue version in person I might grab one next time.

Note: Check out the EDGES of the glass.
One thing I hate about glass covers from Versa Top and Marineland is the hinge is brown and this one is clear. I love that. I may need to get one for my 18g.

Ever seen any of their glass lids before?

Not sure if this is the STANDARD Deep Blue Professional Glass Canopy or the Deep Blue Professional TransLumen Glass Canopy.

Ben94 Joining the club! Haven't planted yet. Also sorry the tank is still terribly cloudy.

I'm going to be using a marineland single bright led that I got for 20 bucks. I'm pretty sure is the equivalent of the beamsworks that's commonly been used.

I went back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to filter this tank or not. Finally decided to throw in a hagen elite mini I had sitting around. Using a tetra preset heater for now as well.

Also would like to say I'm amazed by the quality of these Deep Blue Professional tanks.

Thanks, Fixed up the planting the other week since I had some time and it'll be much quicker to start to carpet hopefully.

I have my ac20 mounted on the side, but it was easy enough to bend the metal feet so they sat higher and could sit level ontop of the filter . Though now I'e got it sitting directly ontop of the cover seems more compact and I get less glare off the top of the cover which is nice since its a desktop tank for me. Here a picture with it lifted up above the filter.

GreenBliss That sucks . Sure the shrimp will like all the new space.

Gavin288 one of the corners had a small leak, No cracks and it wasn't derimmed, it was a slow leak so it wasn't really that bad just didn't feel like spending 4 hours rescaping a new tank and transferring all my baby shrimp but i did upgrade to a 10 gallon

Couesfanatic Where at? What happened, was it cracked or de-rimmed or anything? Thats bad news
