Ok... how about something like this? Glass Aquarium Kit: Tetra Water Wonders 16 Gallon Aquarium Kit

Do you have ANY idea what you're interested in? Rimless is really the 'modern' look IMO.

This is super sleek and modern: Elos 20 Gallon System Mini Aquarium & Cabinet Stand (e-Lite Not Included)

This is the cheap version without the LED fixture on it

IMO like rook said rimless is modern, so unless you want to spring double the cash for an ADA or GLA tank, go with this hot mama

Yeah I love rimless tanks. It's just Idream you know how that one has a square shape, where do you find light fixtures and what not to fit it?

They both have square shapes

Depends on what you want to go with, you could do a MH pendant from fishneedit.com, depending on size you could do T5HOs, or even LEDs

Seeing as how this is FW, if you went planted you could do a T5HO from fishneedit... if it's not planted, then a cheap LED fixture would do the trick and still look sleek... IMO

Hm... I wanted to try a native fish tank, but after seeing all those corals at the store I went to today I REALLY want a 20-29 gallon SW reef. Do you think biocubes are worth it? Or do you think it would just be cheaper or better finding what I need myself?


Whoops forgot I put this in the FW getting started section. (hey rook think you can move it to the SW getting started now?)

About the same IMO, though compared to an aquaclear my filtration is better, also IMO.

Though since you are still currently using tap water for your tank, unless an RODI system is in your future I say go with a FW planted, a biocube is still a good tank for that, just swap out the actinic bulb for another 10000K and you could get something like this

YouTube - ‪Freshwater Biocube 14 planted‬‏

or this
