He has a fantastic little bubble nest built already so he must be happy.

I had been eyeing it for a while and decided this week that I really hated my Eclipse, so I went and picked it up. I noticed that they are not available on-line anymore- maybe they discontinued them?
It came w a cover, light, and filter. I used my existing filter as I wanted to keep my cycle- so far so good w that according to this AM's test results. (the in-hood filter on the eclipse broke long ago so I have been using a HOB filter)
The one thing I do not like about the bookshelf tank is the fact that it only has a tiny door for tank access- its really only good for feeding. I managed to squeeze my fingers and test tubes into the tank through the door to do water testing this morning, but if I dropped the tubes I would be screwed. To do any major in tank work or a water change you need to remove the light strip and the plastic cover it sits on.
Its not ideal, but I will live with that as I really love the shape of the tank.

Well, most kits like that, 'all inclusive stuff' mini bows and the like, only have the small little feeding doors anyway.
I saw one at Petco, but didn't buy it. I came home and researched on Ebay, Amazon, can't find it anywhere. How much did you pay for yours? I never saw a price on one in the store.30g:: Planted: 1 SAE, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 5 Guppies, 3 Platys, 1 zebra danio, 9 Rasboras
2.5g: 1 Male Betta

It was $49.99 I just kept the filter in its original box- I might use it on a different tank at a later time. The light on it is great though.
