You can't go wrong with an Eclipse. I'm actually looking for a used Eclipse hood for a 29 gal. Bio-wheel... *thumbsup*

Any of the ones with a tiny access hole, I'd skip.

I haven't read anything about the Edge, but...man, if you can afford it, I'd try that! Ooh, I love equipment. I'm gonna go read about it... :)

[edit: arg, the Edge uses halogen lights? I'd really read a lot of reviews before trying it.]

They are hot lights. I'd personally wait to see if others have heat problems before trying it.

I was reading reviews of some of the mentioned tanks the other day, and one reviewer said that the heat from the high light in the particular model they got heated the water to 90F and cooked the shrimp they were keeping in the tank (it wasn't the Edge - don't remember which model.) Not good. :/

I'm sure you could possible change the light bulb to something different.

The second one is neat. But I am going with the bigger version, to put some shrimps or a snail in with her.

Ahh you guys spoil the poop out of your bettas huh?
I'm stuck with 1G tanks until I move out and have more space!! I'd love to keep my fish in bigger spaces, and I'm jealous of all of you. lol

Yep! Well, when my family moves. I will be doing everything right or try my hardest.

I just saw someone had the Fluval Edge. Now I can't choose! T-T The Fluval Edge of Eclipse. Both six gallons. Both look awesome.

Yeah I'll be moving out in July or August and hopefully I'll have the space to maybe get a 2.5 at least for each of them. On average how much do those cost? The good ones anyway?

IMO the fluval edge is way too much money for what you get. I've also heard they are extremely hard to clean.

In between 25 to 35 dollars. If it were me I would get a 10 gallon (second, walmart, etc.) and divided three ways or four. I have one divide four ways myself.

Edit: 1f2f, Really? I saw it set up at my local pet store. It has like three glo-fish and two cories in it.
