I will try that. I haven't been feeding that much to begin with. I was hoping all that algae would be tasty enough for everyone.

I really think this tank is unique and interesting, but can you explain why one might choose it over other tanks in the same price range? Like say, a Deep Blue 10 gallon? What makes it worth it, in your opinion? I'm considering purchasing one. Thanks!

For me it is the scale. You can make a scape in a tank like look so much larger than it really is. Plus I can just toss it on a book shelf since it only weighs 20 or so lbs. A ten gallon tank is nice and you can do a lot with it but whenever I see what people do with a 12 gallon long tank, I am jealous. Right now I have a 29 gallon and a 20 gallon long sitting as I try and make up my mind on which one to use for a reef tank. The 29 is the smarter choice due to total water volume but the 20 long is more interesting and will look fuller when fully scaped. Plus lighting is easier (both reef and planted) when you can set the light closer to the substrate.

To each their own, right? I am looking forward to the day when I have a bookshelf full of these smaller tanks each representing a slice of nature. You will find lots of people who love this tank and probably just as many who will poo-poo it because a small volume of water is harder to keep consistent and the lack of fauna that can be put in one, etc. It his a sweet spot for me in between big dreams and little budgets.

Got me ready to purchase one! I agree about the big dreams and little budgets. Also like you said you can have many different species all in one rack.

Most people wouldn't guess this is only 2 gallons, so he's spot on with big dreams on a little budget. It took me a while to create it, but it was so worth it

Wow, that looks awesome MABJ. I am really thinking about picking one of these up, but they are hard to find around me. I'd love to be able to get one from an LFS, as opposed to mail order.

Thanks guys. I'm pretty sure most of us have ordered off Amazon with little issue.

Amazon doesn't have them in stock for them to fulfill at this time so the cheapest on amazon is over $60. Because of this, I purchased mine from Allpet as it was the only place I could find it at an affordable price for such a small tank.

Allpet is the seller that used to sell on amazon. They had a dispute of some sort and withdrew their selling on amazon.

Their price has always been good.
