I have always wanted one of these, but never spoken to anyone who has had one. Lots of second hand info on the web. I would also love to hear from someone who has some personal experience with them.

I have a 125 gallon with 40 rasboras and a 72 gallon with 30 neons. While I like the contrast of the coloration of the neons against a planted tank, the rasboras seem to be a much hardier fish (IME)....
