    I love these aquariums from Zero Edge. I think I need to call these guys ... my dream tank is pretty much the one in the upper right side.

    I'll take surface area over height any day. Easier to clean too. ;)

    I saw one of these used as a clam tank when I was last at Inland Aquatics in Indiana. It was pretty neat.

    There was a guy selling one on craigslist that he had made, Matt. He started at like 1000 and last I saw was only asking 400. It looked pretty sweet and water flowed over all four walls and returned in the middle. It was a square shape.

    one of the lfs near me had 2 of these on display. One that was about 8ft long and 2ft deep deticated to sps. They are very sweet tanks. I want a canapy on my new tank but also love looking at the tank from the top as well.
    Ahh decisions. Maybe I should just get a nano zero edge as well just for fun :)

    How big was that one? How did the water flow over the walls? Sounds cool.

    Seems like all of the water flowing over the edges would make it hard to see in to the tank....guess you would only look down on it?

    Where would you end up putting the lights?? Hang them from the ceiling or maybe a spot light?

    the one on craigs was 40 gallon i think but had like a 20g sump. It's gone now though. $400 must have been too good to stay for sale. The water flowed over all 4 walls and into a basin. He had a 250W MH hanging from the ceiling in the pics. It looked like you could see pretty clear even with the water running over the edges. he said it was clear to look at and it was glass.

    I would just worry about the kids getting blinded by the light when they look at it. Got some curtain climbers in the house. After I glance at my lights I see dot every where I could imagine what a MH would do.

    Hi,
    I was doing a search on zeroedge and found this forum and thread and thought I would answer some of your questions. ZeroEdge has a website ZeroEdge Aquarium Corp. where you can see the different aquariums which we make and sell.

    Ok first question:
    We developed what we call the ZeroEdge Lamp Tree. it's a free standing unit which eliminates having to hang lights from the ceiling or the wall. The footpad rests on the floor, taking the weight off the aquarium stand or cabinet. The flat mounting plate attaches to the back of all most cabinet stands. The Lamp Tree can hold a hood from 12" to 48". It's height can be adjusted from 33" to 60".

    It's crystal clear. At shows there are many people that stick their hand in the tank, thinking that it has a glass top. You can view your tank, from either the top or the side, the flowing water is pretty much invisible.

    Actually the tank is super quiet. The first models from approx 4 years ago where noisy, but we have worked out all the kinks. It is an awesome tank. I would encourage everyone to visit the site and watch the movie we have hosted there. it's also hosted at YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. as well as www.myspace.com/zeroedgeaquarium

    This was one of the first aquariums built, the current model has been greatly improved.

    When you view the site, the prices you see include, tank, stand and sump, pretty much all inclusive. If there are more questions please feel free to ask away.

    I have seen similar tanks like these, they are awsome! Really cool...but you need to be creative with plumbing in order for it to look sleek.

    Pricing includes tank, sump and stand as well as all plumbing parts required. So no need to be creative..we already did that!
