Yes, it is a bit pricey, but I want something more than just a glass box with a hole in the top and a fish swimming around in it. When I first saw it, it intrigued me, That is until I saw the price tag, but I keep going back to it. There is just something about it. Now if only i can find a good sale
Ive seen them on sale for slightly cheaper, but not much. And when you do get them, there light is not very bright, so you have to get some LED bulbs or something especially if you want to grow plants. Also the small hole hinders what you can put in it.... If i can ever pick one up for cheap, i plan on making it into a Shrimp tank! maybe a nice moss carpet or something and some pretty stones. That would be cool. I wouldnt not put a betta in there because of the lack of surface area, i could see a betta freaking out in the dark not being able to find the small surface aarea (under the filter.....) to breathe... That would be sad to find him/her dead in the morning. Not worth it! But for shrimp..... it would be a great view.
Also, just wait a year i bet we will start to see some on craigslist because people will get them and realize that taking care of a tank is harder than they though and they will sell them off!
Ya ive been frequenting theplantedtank.net. or w/e and they have some GREAT shrimp tanks, and if i were to do some red crystal shrimp or red cherrys or anyhting else i could end up making some money! IF they were to breed that is of course. :D
I am going to get one tody, It is a b-day gift for my husband. His mom is getting it for him. I alo was wondering if it would be ok for a betta. My husband has researched it, he even downloaded the brochure. We think it should be ok for our little Rhino. We decided that if he seems to have trouble getting air, we jsut won't completely fill the tank. And they are such beautiful tanks, and found it on sale at our petsmart for 99 USD. We also found out that the refill cartridges are cheap, and so is the heater.
