Oh well, I'm sure things can be modded. lol
What aquarium kit isn't in need of a little modification? lol. So my brother decided to only use the 2 gallon for one of his bettas and is considering on using the 4 as a soft coral reef tank. I'd be a little concerned about the light but he worked as the aquatics manager in one of the LPS for 5 years. He knows his stuff. LOL

I seriously can't decide between all the tanks I mentioned in your post. If I knew I could get a top fitted for the finnex 4 gallon....I think I'd invest the money. hmmm....and the internal debate in my head continues. lol

I think they do make a top for the Finnex, I know they at least make holders for a top. I used them on my home made cube.

I think I might switch out the filter material on this tank with some sponges, but I have to get the pump going first. xD

Ok, I don't see any actual lids, but this is what I did.
I bought these lid holders...

...




Worked just fine

Oh yeah. lol

I'd have to do some research on it but I'm sure I could figure out a good mod for it. I live for that kind of stuff.

I looked at some pics online. It looks like the filter side has a fake bottom in it. Like it doesn't go down as far as the pump side. What is under that? How does the water get from the filter side to the pump side?

Here's some pics. Yea, it looks like the filter side is just a box glued into the back. There's a slit in the back corner of it for water to fall down to the pump. Looks like it pulls from the slits and the hole at the front of the tank, then spills over to the side with the pump to be sent back into the tank.
