How many usable nano kits are out there?

Okay, I want to start a poll finding out about everyone's favorite nano kits, but I'm not even sure I know most of them. Can you help me create a list? Criteria are at least 2.5g and not not intended for kids (Disney themes, etc.).

I am aware of:

Eheim Aquastyle
Fluval Edge
Fulval Flora
Fluval the one without CO2
BiOrb
Finnex 4g
Fluval Spec
Fluval Chi (wow - what's up with Fluval?)

Doesn't Fluval have the shrimp habitat kit? Or is that under a name here too?

best I have owned was a jbj 28 gal 150 watt hqi with nano tuners pc actinic upgrade for my first reef tank. .

I really want one with LED's for a small reef.

I've got a Dymax IQ5 3.5gal tank. It's acrylic with rounded edges rather than seams that most other small kits have. It's got a lot of knockoff imitations as well.

What about the petco 6.6 bookshelf tank.
I love that tank.
Theres also the rather badly done topfin 5.5...
And marineland 3 and 5 gallon...
Umm... Aqueon Mini Bow 1 2 3 and 5 gallon.
Not great nano kits but nano kits nonetheless..

You list the Fluval Spec, but say 2.5g or up.. The spec is only 2g.

There are also the Aqueon Evolve's available in 2, 4, & 8 gallon sizes. There is a prisim nano thats similar in design to the spec, but cheaper & all acrylic/plastic. Marineland Eclipse 3g & I believe 8g, not to mention the 5 gallon hex kits would also fit the bill.


37g w/ eclipse 3 planted Betta sorority
29g w/ eclipse 3 planted shrimp & snail tank
20 gallon long divided into 4 planted betta condo's
7.9 gallon fluval flora planted
6.6 gallon tall planted mini sorority
3g eclipse betta tank
2g hex betta tank
