    sorry to hear that, hopefully they wont be too stressed, im going to put it where people dont walk by alot, since thats the only space I can have 10g on anyway.

    I wish they will make it too untill solana arrives,

    good thing is, free shipping, no tax, and also 50 dollar credit I can buy live stock from them lol..anyway the worst part is cleaning my tank, and it smells like horrible and looks horrible, and ya solona's are rimless

    I love the looks of Solana's. I can tell you this right now though. You're going to want a Hydor Korallia Nano pump, a Tunze, or similar brand of powerhead. They've improved the stock returns but it's still lacking. To give you an idea, at the store, we kept seahorses in it and you know how they don't like flow.

    The skimmer should be fine. The stock flow is the main issue.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Me too!

    I like the look of Cardiff as well, but the Solana makes a nice cube.

    alright, thanks guys. What do you guys think of the deal though? My lfs is 399 + tax, but this one is 330 free shipping no tax, and also 50 dollar instore credit for live stocks..i think thats pretty cheap..no?

    Also this tank seems 20x20x20, my biocube was 20x19x20, kinda weird 1inch = 5 gallon?

    Also is there cheaper way to get stand..dont really want to pay 200 bucks for it,

    If you're good with DIY... I think you could get a really good look to match the rimless/modern look of the aquarium.

    If you want, I could draw something up for you.
