I didn't know aqueon made a 2.5G. Mine is a Marineland 2.5 Gallon

Eventhough it's empty, the black gravel really makes it stand out.


For lights ANY desk lamp will work but depends on what you're looking for.

For more elaborate setups, check out this link.

BTW, why don't you want to use the glass lid?

Problems running wires & tubing?

I love black gravel. It brings out the coloring in the fish

I have that same tank, and I had a cover made with an acrylic frame and nylon mesh from a fabric store. I installed strip LED lights that I had custom made also. The entire construction sits nicely above the water line and hides in the grove of the frame so it looks great and I don't have to use a desk lamp - which really wouldn't look as nice where I have it.

where do you get the glass lids for the 2.5 gallon classic tanks syds mom? I have never seen them.

If you are only concerned it will fall in you can clip something to the outside of it.

If you want to keep it give me a few hours and I can come up with something that won't be too bad. :D

I made this lid for my 2.5 tank using two cd back covers and one cd center piece. It fits right into the edge on my tank. I used a couple dots of super glue to hold the center piece with the hole in it to the other end pieces. It works great!
