I saw on a Marina box that they have larger versions of these half gallon cubes
gotta look into that!
I have 4 QT tanks ranging from .5-1.5 G and I feel like I am constantly doing water changes.
How about you make a design yourself on a larger tank? My friend has this tank and within two months it broke. You seem to have your heart set on something about this tank, so I can only assume it is the design. Fish stores have aquarium designs; however, if you're looking for something more hipster, go to Michaels or Joanns (any craft store).
Michael's has a larger section of different types paper with cool designs on it for only a few cents. It is not a standard piece of paper, I believe it is an 11by11inch square (maybe bigger) I believe they have some that are very similar to the yin yang design in that tank. I recommend getting the Aqueon Mini Bow Aquarium (it comes with a filter, a light, and a hood) for $35 or another 2.5G that others llike. I know for a fact that a piece of the design paper will fit the Mini Bow. Find a way to attach it to the back of the tank (maybe even just clear tape since it's in the back and the tape will be on the outside. This way, removing it will be easier.Anyway, after that, get some black gravel and some aquarium plants (I do have bamboo in one of my NPTs and it does well) and BAM! You have a hip asian-inspired tank that is also functional and it will keep your fish happy. Everyone wins! :)
