I got them from an Australian supplier, but they are the DoAqua brand. They are a cheaper alternative to the ADA range of tanks, which I know a couple of online companies distribute in America.

Here's my big 3 foot tank. It's going to house a group of Betta Uberis in the future, but now it's just sitting on the floor because it weighs forty kilograms with nothing in it and I can't shift the thing!



The glass is 1cm thick. The downside of rimless tanks is that the glass is thicker and so they're heavier than tanks with rims and braces.

Wow, OFL I love your wild look. In your guppy tank, what are those long grass-like plants in the background? I need something to fill out my 16.

Everyone has GORGEOUS tanks! I took all new pics today. All of mine are a big mess except Wraith's. His actually looks planned. :P


Kilo... You can see how monstrously huge he's gotten. That's a 10 gallon tank!


Tango, showing off for the camera as usual. I'm in the process of replacing the lights on all these hex 5s with 6500k. The bulbs they came with are 4500k.


Wraith, I tried to make his look tropical? I dunno. Hehe.


Logan! He made a lil bubble nest this morning! You can just see it between the thermometer and the water lettuce. Looks like a white line.


Endler/Corydoras tank. You can see lots of Endler's but no corys. :)

Thanks, I'll keep the name of the brand in mind. I think I'd like something like that for a future tank.

It's mini water lettuce. I got it from some guy on ebay. The roots are even more gorgeous in person. They get water bubbles caught in them and they shimmer. It's like little fairy lights. I love them. They grow like crazy though. I have to pull a couple new ones out every few days. Here's what they look like up top:


Don't mind Logan guarding his TINY bubblenest. LOL!!!

Edit - Alex, I LOVE your tank. It looks so much more tidy then mine do. Major jealous. :P

This tank has a mixture of different types of Anubias and one remaining piece of narrow-leaf java fern.



This smaller tank is about 7 gallons, and has a mixture of Crypts (some of which have melted and been cut back) and Anubias.
The first tank looks beautiful only halfway filled up like that!
And also~ where you'd get teh wood for the 7 gallon?
