Wow.. the only ones I could find were the ones with no base and were like $47 plus shipping.

I was lucky I got mine on sale bc apparently the purple wasn't selling??? I think its pretty.

Mine has the base and the whisper filter.. its not so bad but I still think i'm going to the the sea deco art nano.. whatever.. filter so it takes up even less space.

Where can you buy this sea deco art nano filter?

I'm not a fan of purple, the tank is for my black orchid and I think I'm doing an asian themed tank, so I wanted black or teal to go with him, but I'll take purple if I get it for $25. I may consider just spray painting it this summer.

here's a few on ebay

$15 right now ($36 total with shipping) (no filter) - http://cgi.ebay.com/Blue-Mini-Bow-2-...item3ca91af76c

came up to $38 with shipping - http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS...kittotallyteal

Yeah, i got mine at Petco. It's a really good price right now, I believe I got mine for double what it is right now, but it's worth it.

Well the tank came in today. THe item description, title, and in a personal email stated that it was new in box. This tank has clearly been used. It's scratched, the filter cartridge was caked with nastiness, the light bulb was burnt out, and none of the sample foods were inside. Not to mention the million rocks I had to dig out of cracks.

I cleaned the tank and filter with vinegar, bought a new light bulb, and replaced the filter cartridge. Right now it's setup and working but I'm terrified to put a fish in it because I have no idea what was in that old filter cartridge.

Here's a pic of old vs new:

Wow, that thing was definitely used! How much did you say you got the tank for, and where from? That stinks, its so sad how people just want to mislead one another.

I only paid $25 for it, the cheapest I've found it brand new anywhere (store wise) would be $40. I just can't believe someone would say that's new in box, did you not open the damn box?

Is it even safe to my fish in there? I rinsed the filter out and it has a brand new cartridge?

How long should I let this thing run before putting a fish in?
