Talking Up Aqua Easy Tank

I've been eyeing this Up Aqua Easy Tank at my LFS and finally bit the bullet and bought it to replace my planted betta bowl. I wanted a AIO tank so that it's easier for maintenance. I like it because it resembles the Fluval Spec V, but smaller at 3 gallons instead. It also comes with a LED light that is rated at 6W, 6400K perfect for a planted tank. And the best part is it's made of thick glass!

Here's some pics of the water leak test, I set it up already, but waiting for the water to clear before posting pics. This is my 3rd tank in a 4 month period since getting back in the Betta hobby. I think I have a problem. LoL

It'll be so pretty once you have it set up!

Wow, I'm so jealous!! What a gorgeous tank! Does it had a lid of some kind so your fishy won't jump out?

Believe me, I know about racking up the tanks. I currently have... five? Yep, five in my bedroom. Although to be fair, one is a temporary hospital tank. Bettas are addictive!!

That's a great looking AIO. I have a spec and my main complaints about it are the large base and the metal edges on the corners.

Can that tiny sponge be replaced with a larger one?

I love the look of that tank. Anything with a plant rated LED is good in my book. Can't wait to see how you dress it up. :)

I told myself no more small tanks, but I find myself curious and googling up aqua isn't finding me what I need. Is there a more specific name for that set up? I've never seen one quite like it before.

Google "Up Aqua" it should be the first link. The tank name is "Easy Tank" I couldn't find too much info on it either. Seems to be a unknown Chinese brand. Good build quality tho!

No tank lid. I wish it came with one like the Spec V. I'll be visiting Taps Plastic soon to DIY a lid tho.

Nice

Your tank looks great. I just bought a 3 Gal a few weeks ago and am currently painstakingly mapping it out. I could only hope it looks nearly as nice as yours.

Thank you. I'm sure it will turn out looking GREAT! It's all in the planning. I used Fluval Stratum for the soil, bought 3 plants for $10 at my LFS, and used driftwood I already had. Took me less than 15 min to set my tank up.
