I have the 12g edge
I managed to fit a piece of driftwood on it but it's not fun if you take it down and then need to clean it up to use again. I'm not real impressed with the stock lighting. Would I buy another? I doubt it.

I've never been a fan of the "fancy" tanks. Always used standard.

I know from personal experience I've tried many times to use fake decor but always end up switching to the natural look.

Probably the closest I've done to tank like that is 10g. I had it fully planted with a dwarf pufferfish.

If you are up for it I would encourage live plants. You will be more satisfied in the long run. There's plenty that are very easy and forgiving of beginner mistakes.

Is it worth going for reef/marine setup straightaway as a newbie? Or better to start tropical/freshwater?



Also any slightly large-ish fish that don't mind being solo in a tank? Or best to get an arrangement of a few small fish?



Anyhow, thanks already for the great comments and advice I have already read here. Looking forward to starting my fish family...

Haven't owned a fluval edge, but is definitely recommend getting the fluval spec v if your going for saltwater. And in saltwater, the tank size kind of limits the fish you could have, anything smaller than a 10 gallon can't really support a fish, as saltwater fish are very sensitive and a 10 gallon is about the smallest you could really go, but if you wanted to setup a reef, I'd definitely recommend a fluval spec v, it comes with its own powerhead, but I'd recommend getting a stronger pump, than the stock pump.

My LFS that I go to has a fluval edge setup as a nano reef, it looks stunning, and they also used the new fluval reef light, and they have a bunch of coral in it

So... my researching has led me to look at the Dennerle 60L tank:
it seems for shrimps or aquascaping... but at 60L could I use it as a good fish tank??

NanoCube® BASIC | Dennerle

Any thoughts?

Depends if you want to do SW, then you can start thread in SW Getting Started or Nana Tanks.

Cut and past the link here when you do, so we can see how it goes!
