Check out my rims...

Okay, so rimless seems to be all the rage right now, so I'm bucking convention and going old school! I found this old Metaframe tank and just fell in love! I've never seen one in such good condition. So I've set it up as my Betta Albi grow out tank. I also put in a light rack for both tanks.

Those metal frame tanks are so cool. I want one, but I have way to many unused tanks already.

Old school! The thick frames almost make it look like a picture frame. But one that moves.

The same tank as on the UB forums too?

Yup, this is Phoenix-cry from Ultimate Betta as well.

I just love the old school look. 200 dollars?! That's insane!

Heehee. I love the rimless look as well. But I can't afford an ADA and I have failed to derim a normal tank several times.

Buy an Eclipse tank and don't use the hood. They come in 3, 6 or 12 gallons.
