Looking for a rimless nano

Hey all,

Looking for a sleek little tank. If I can't find something better I'll probably get a Fluval V, but I'm looking for something rimless that is crystal clear and about the same size. Any ideas?

I have seen all sorts, from canisters and lily pipes to canisters with stock/stainless inflow and outflow. Seen HOBs. I have a mini internal filter in mine, but I only have shrimp and 2 Endlers so it's sufficient.

Also have a Fluval Spec V, there's advantages to each set up.

Have you considered non standard tanks like bubble bowls and 2.5g+ vases? I really enjoy mine, but some don't like the distortion.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Unfortunately I do have issues with the distortions, but thanks for trying

I've been trying to pick one too and I've been leaning toward one of the Aquatop cube Aplomado linked or an Eheim Aquastyle which comes with an internal filter (which is really nice as far as internal filters go), a decent LED light and a removable glass lid. I don't think the aquastyle is low iron glass but at least three of the four sides are all one-piece bent glass so there are no seams, but distortion right at the bend point. The problem I'm having is is every time I think I've decided on one it goes out of stock or the other goes on sale so I haven't bought one yet

Where did you pick yours up? Can't seem to find them for sale online?

Mr. Aqua Bookshelf Kit is my absolute favorite. You can even buy it in a kit with the hob filter and light included! Im gonna start a thread on my 1.5 gallon.

What kind of filter are you going for with your rimless nano? I'm looking into the same and wondering if there's an option for discreet or hidden filtration... given the small size and sleek look, I don't really want an ugly filter hanging out in the tank or on the counter next to it...
