Mr. Aqua Bookshelf 3 Gallon long


Just sitting here on a sunny Saturday afternoon surfing the net and ran in to this Mr. Aqua Bookshelf / Long Frameless Glass Aquarium Tank



I just ordered one and can't wait to get it. I didn't know Mr Aqua made a 3 gal long. Apparently they also have available a 1.5g long, and a 6g long. I'm sure I'll be ordering those very soon as well. Ever since I bought my 12g long I've been addicted to the long tank look. I now own 4 long style tanks. Very addicting. If you purchase a Mr Aqua 3 gallon long after reading this please post about here. I would like to see how other people set up this cool tank.

I have a 6g long from them, and couldn't be happier with it. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

I'm thinking ug,marsilea minuta. Something small for sure. I'll probably throw dragon stone or lava in with it. The hardest part for me is trying to keep things simple.

I'm jonesing for this tank too. I have the DBP 3L, sort of a framed version of this tank. I like it and have done some things to give it a modernistic look. Saw the Mr Aqua tank about 3 weeks ago and now I want it but don't know where I can put it in my small apartment (already have 5 tanks indoors). Will be watching your project develop. Good luck.

I finally got the tank set up and cycling. I'll be stocking it with shrimp. Just not sure what kind yet. I'm thinking fire reds and golden bees would look cool together. I'm open to opinions. I just got finished planting the LC. It seemed like it took forever. It kept wanting to pop up just like planting HC. Crazy! Anyways, here's my plant list for this tank.

Plants:
Lilaeopsis Chinensis
Riccia
Anubias petite
Unknown moss (fissidens)???
Caloglossa cf. beccarii (Red moss)
Frogbit

Where did you get that light? I've been looking for this type of light for my rimless 6 gallon I have sitting around.

That looks like a perfect tank for shrimp, I'm totally loving the dimensions! How is the light working out for you so far? Does it seem bright enough for low light plants?

Ive thought about picking up the 1.5G one, but I'm still kind of on the fence. Are you still thinking about picking one up? I would love to see one up and running before Id go through with it lol

Is the Riccia (front right(?)) matted? I've been curious about trying it, but how does it grow out from the original mat, I mean will new growth that's not weighed down give you floating/hovering edges? I ask because I thought this plant typically likes to float on the surface.
