Help me shop for a Nano tank Christmas gift!

Hello--

My son loves planted aquariums. He has a beautiful 55 gallon with CO2 and all the do-dads. He has mentioned wanting to get a small rimless tank. I want to make that dream come true this Christmas but I don't know what to get. My total budget is $300.

I've done some research and I think the tanks at AquaForest are lovely.

I'm considering the Cube Garden mini medium

Or the Cube Garden 30c

http://www.adana-usa.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=191

I know that I need to get him special lights, a heater, and some kind of filter. I want everything to look nice. He really doesn't like having obvious equipment in the tank.

I want to start ordering things quickly so that it is all here on Christmas morning.

Thanks for reading this. I hope to hear back soon.

If I had $300 to spend I would get the following as a nice rimless setup.

Mr. Aqua Low Iron Glass Aquarium- Around $100

Hydor Inline Heater- Around $50

12" Aquarium Light So Many Options On This One! - Around $75

Aquatop Ebay Filter or one of the killer Eheim deals that is going around for the 2232- Around $50

Then around $25 for substrate!

This would be a nice setup and would fit in with your budget
