The tank itself is my favorite part of this kit. The low iron glass, bent corners and rimless design just appeals to my eye, I know it doesn't for everyone's. I will likely change out the lights and am certainly changing out the filter, and do not use the glass top, so I can far from call this a perfect shrimp kit *for me*. But I'm not sure I wouldn't pay $200 bucks for this tank and light. I will have lots of uses for the light and I suspect the filter will come in handy also. It would probably be perfect for someone starting out to have success, just not how I best keep plants and shrimp.

Set up as sold (minus the glass top) 7 weeks in (planted largely from existing tanks):

Did a fishless cycle and moved a sponge filer from a healthy Cardina tank for 7 weeks before adding livestock. Gave a few crystals reds the tank for a week before ordering, then bought user ChefB0yardee (sp?) 10 pack of mischling shrimp as the first full time inhabitants.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
