Has anyone tried the 6 gallon eclipse? Because I know they used to make one. They have one at this local pet store near by me for 90 dollars which is a bit steep. I really don't want to spend all that money if its not as great as my current tank.

hrm, pop the joke baloon

Actually; ammonia and ethanol are fine for aquarium cleaning, even with some salt added in really hot water.

Rinse very well.

They're not worth 90 bucks. The six gallon uses a different filter arrangement than the 2 to 5 gallon systems and I just don't trust LAARGE acrylic tanks with such thin walls.

The current 5gal eclipse hexagon has become a very reliable tank for display fish (low count under inch limit) and has quite a bit of thought put into the lid and light-box. The fluorescent 7.5w shipped with the 5 gal are kinda bright, I put a 5w Coralight and have a happy Goat.

The six gal has a 75gph filter .iirc, it deploys flow forward from the right side and is not suitable for betta-keeping without a special modification of the filter system. You can't simply back-up the output on it. The 2-5 use a little 35gph bio-wheel filter which is easy to maintain.

Is it possible to just not use their filter, and use your own on the six gallon?
