Hm... Don't know how much you're into DIY stuff, but could you get a regular aquarium and then make a hidden internal compartment to house an internal filter and heater?

My friend that is an experienced aquarist from Discovery Cove (a sister theme park of Sea World here in Orlando) told me to do that. I just think the amount of hours to learn best silicon, custom cut resin/glass, etc should be devoted to learn more about the fish and plants. After all, this is just my first tNk ever.

Don't really have any suggestions for you, but I do hear really good things about Fluval. Plus I think the style of their tanks is breathtakingly gorgeous. They ARE a bit costly, but I think they look their price.

I have a Fluval View, which I decided on more for the lid seal than the look of it. It's a nice tank and I love it, but the graphic on the back really detracts from the "pricy" look. So probably not the best choice for you... But I am perfectly satisfied with it's performance thus far.

Looking forward to seeing what you end up doing! :)

Are Fluvals the ones with no lid?

Not all of them. Some do I think, but all of the ones I've seen have at least a lid you can purchase separately. Cool thing about them is that oftentimes the lids look practically invisible. Makes for an ultra sleek look.

My betta got stuck in something like this. I thought he wouldn't be able to fit...apparently, half of him could. Just be careful and measure all the in and out openings. Block all of the openings that might be iffy. the Hydro Theo Heater SO FAR hasn't gone haywire on me yet, and I do suggest it. Good luck!
