Frameless nano tanks advice


I'v had tanks most of my life but i become iffy over the years ..

i'm thinking about getting back with a small 5-10g nano tank. i plan to grow quality plants with good lightning/co2, etc.

i want to get a tank that is glass only (no frames or tops), i never had those but always wanted one, so, my questions are:

1. Are aquatop/Cad lights zen tank good options? any other recommended brands?

or should i look around my area for someone who working with glass and pay them to make me one? (will probably be cheaper but more hassale ..)

2. will i have a hard time finding and adjusting a good lightning system for naked tanks? all my tanks always came with lightning so i really no idea how i am gonna attach the light.

thanks for the help and patience 🙂

I’ve had the cad lights zen 11 gallon for over a year with no problems. It seems well made, the silicone is smooth, the edges are rounded over, etc. The only real problem I’ve had is that with rimless I can really see the evaporated water ring at the top. For my light I use a finnex stingray 16” and it comes with little “legs” that have screws that hold it against the glass.
