    The Dymax IQ3 aquarium kit is a slick little pico with a built-in filter with overflow and a dimmable LED lamp with 28 LEDs. The IQ3 aquarium is just over 2 gallons with 8.66" x 6.69" x 8.66" measurements and sells for only around $50-60 USD. 3reef hopes a little highlight will finally get the Dymax IQ3 Nano aquarium kit to get picked up in the USA. Dymax is an aquarium company out of Singapore and since its release this summer, the IQ3 has been spotted in a few other countries but here. Umm, we will take a few. :p

    That is pretty awesome!

    Shipping sucks though. Looks like a little over $100 total - shipped to US.

    these look to be just regular old leds nothing high powered like cree's or something
    they could keep some plants but its probably not enough for corals

    Aye, but there are 28 of them! Those pics with plants look like pretty strong lighting... I would guess shrooms, zoas and maybe some softies... who knows though, total guess.

    This looks like a huge step in the right direction as far as picos go. I've always hated the look of HOB filters on them, and by the looks of it that filter compartment could easily be a fuge! Someone needs to test that light ASAP!

    doesnt look like it has any blues on the leds to me. so i doubt u cant stick any corals in thee.

    and for 50-60 bucks, it might just be the most expensive beta tank IMHO.
    but thats just me.
