Hi ryan, its not waterproof. it is kind of open at the back which lets the heat and evaporation out of it so that is doesn't sit and rot the hood. it has really good air circulation. I am really happy with it. my wife at first thought it was a waste of money but now she is really impressed with it and how much of a feature it is in the house. Every time someone new comes over and has not seen it she has to show them it.

I added it up the other day and since Feb 16, when I got my tank, I'm into it over $1k now. It adds up fast!

Oh my god! That's funny...and now that I think of how much money i have invested...it makes me cringe! Only about 400 bucks, but when your unemployed, boy does it hurt! Haha

Argh...I charged more on my credit card bill! I charged more!!!

Sigh. Mother's day came around and I upgraded the horrible Marina slim filter on my mini-five gallon to a Aqua Clear 30. I decided my mom's Betta deserved better filtration with an adjustable flow knob (and it's my mom's gift) and my GOD....with the added ChemiPure Elite in the little basket - the water now looks like a mirror!

Sigh...don't look at the credit card bill...no looking....

Oh, did I mention my mommy is really, really happy now?
