It's cheaper through evilbay.. I paid right under $100 for mine I think... with a FugeRay and 360 filter.

ETA I realize mine was the 4 gallon version though... not the 6.

Some of the most beautiful nanos I've seen in this section were running Finnex Ray 2.

My plan (in the future) is to get a Mini M with Finnex or Aquasky. Personally, Finnex looks way better than an Aquasky does, imo.

Definitely not. If you donate $100 I'll do it. So far still sticking with Mini L and Finnex Ray 2. If the L is discontinued I'll get an M.

I just dont know why no one wants to save for something good. Get yourself a ten gallon and a cheap light, grow stuff in rows or in a neat way and put shrimp inside.. in the meantime save some money and then get what you want and dont settle so you will be happy. Then once you have it plant your tank for free!

Because it is not "good". That aquasky light is garbage. It is pure comedy to think that an overpriced tank and poorly designed light will grow plants better.

Well to you who is obviously frustrated... I understand where you are coming from.

But to the OP that wants an ADA tank already but cannot make up his mind on a light, I think the aquasky led works fine. I've got good red color on my hygrophila pinnitafida three days after they went into the tank green.. I am sure any other light would do the same but if your looking for a tank with the least visible equipment I would go for an aquasky-only if you want one obviously.

My point is people, myself included tend to rush and buy only whats feasible at that moment when really its not what they desire. Two months down the road they regret it but are already out a substantial amount of money. A regular five gallon tank with a heat lamp and hob will grow just about any and every plant a rimless overpriced tank and "bad, ugly" light can. But when you want nice things you pay for them. A honda and Lamborghini both get you from one point to another but but one makes you mad and say they are ugly while you pride yourself over the other.


Oh and to emphasize how mad you are about ADA producing nice products.... I simply said something good as in anything. Never said he has to buy an aquasky. Dont get your panties in such a knot.

Here are some pics of my Schuber 9 gallon with a ray II. It is growing HC and DHG beautifully.

Thank you for that pic. What length of Ray 2 is that? It's very nice.

Default ADA tanks vs Mr Aqua

I just got a ADA 45-P which is similar to the mini L and it was $130 shipped. I'm still deciding on a light. The Ray2, Fugeray, or the Archaea LEDs. I had an Archaea compact and it sucked! The Jebo grew better plants than it . So that makes a little uneasy about the brand

The archaea LEDs are even worse. If you want I can sell you one anyway. The archaea power compact is apparently awesome. What made it bad?
