Have 6g edge, want something different!


I am in need of some advice. I currently have a 6 gallon Fluval Edge and had it set up and running with a DIY LED light fixture, CO2, etc. Long story short, I really can't stand this tank! The orifice is just too limiting to do any work in the tank. Plant maintenance is a chore and good luck trying to snag fish.

I really like having a tank in my office, though.

Any thoughts on other options? Have looked online at multiple sites and just can't seem to make a decision. I would like something roughly the same size.

Aquastyle 6. I have one in my office and I adore it. Great light, filter is very effective, no need to get any other hardware.

This is a really nice tank for the price and I like the black silicone.

If I ever do a nano again it would be a cube though.

I would have to agree with removing the lid of the edge and go rimless! I've seen it been done on the forum and it looks great!

For an all-in-one, try the Fluval Spec V. I love mine.

Yup. I think the dimensions of the edge are pretty nice. You can take the top off and all the plastic off and have a nice looking rimless with what you have.
