It's looking really good already. I see that you opted not to use the background. I took mine out, too.

I think your Ebi will be very easy on the electric bill. The light is only 13 watts, the...

If you're looking for a rimless one, you might consider the Dymax IQ3, which is similar. It's acrylic,...

I have an Ebi and it's a beautiful tank. It's very easy to plant, too, because you have good access to it. There is a removable glass top. It's plenty big enough for shrimp and plants are stunning...
