You would need additional lighting for sure. The Edge has a light located in the center. Most people find that it doesn't cover the edges (pun intended) of the footprint of the tank. Popular lighting upgrades are Ecoxotic Stunner LED Strips. Which btw, you may want to check out the Ecoxotic EcoPico Aquairums.
Ahh ok thanks for the info. Definitely want it planted, but also want as little modification as possible. I'm trying to go simple, hassle free on this one. As for the ecoxotic ecopico... I'm having a hard time finding anything about the filter it comes with. Do you know anything about that? What kind of filtration? replacement media? etc... Thanks!
I have an evolve 8 in my office (see sig) and it is quiet and able to grow plants with the led light. Looks good too
That is a nice looking tank, definitely would go well on my desk. I'd likely go for the smaller version so my boss doesn't take issue with it. How is it on noise?
I'd get the Spec V
Cool dimensions, quiet, and a decent price for a nano.
Those were the main things that attracted me to the tank as well, and from what I understand it's pretty quiet too. Thanks for the input.
Hit up frank for a total mini m package, expensive, but awesome!.
Who is frank? lol. Maybe I should know this... but I'm not sure who you're talking about.
I have the Evolve4 here at home, and after stuffing some poly quilt batting between the little filter and the back wall, it's nice and quiet..
Thanks for the input! Definitely worth consideration.
As always, thanks to everyone for contributing
