Fluval Ebi Tank?!?!

So most of us know about the new shrimp tank tank that fluval came out with. Its awesome right. Not that its a bad thing I'm actually quite glad, but has anyone out there who has one of coarse have there backround pop out. My friend told me that her backround pop off the glass and was floating up cause its made of Styrofoam. So I went over to look at her tank and there it was just floating atop. It was hilarious. I couldnt stop laughing. Hey at least theres more room for scaping

Speaking of the Ebi, does anyone know who has them in stock for online ordering?

I am setting up a second EBI and I removed the background then put it back in with LOTS of silicone. My first EBI hasn't lost its background and I hope it doesn't because it would make such a mess.

While the background isn't all that attractive the shrimp love climbing around on it and it grows algae so I'm keeping the backgrounds in.

I was out to buy a 30litre nano for shrimp today, was between the Fluval Ebi and the Aquael 30 litre shrimp kit. I wasn't keen on the background in the Fluval, but it comes with more goodies (like the substrate).

I ended up getting the Aquael, it was 30 cheaper and a big bag of shrimp friendly substrate cost me 20. The other reason being none of my LFS stock the Fluval

Really happy with it, I'll set it up later this week on my desk at work, got permission from the boss today, will take pictures etc when I do!
