Oh, cool. It will definitely be worth the trip I think. From what I have read, they have some amazing display tanks. You will get a lot of good ideas... just leave the credit cards at home .

I just realised you are from N.Cali...so am I!
Looked at it, but it's too wide for the shelf. I'll do an instore review, so if you haven't been to the store fort linked, stay tuned.

Since they're mini tank experts, I'm sure they'll have some excellent suggestions. As for cost, with the chi+light redo+filter replacement, I bet I'll come in around the same price with a cleaner/better look.

There are some smaller/different shaped cube gardens as well... I am sure you will find something you like. Not sure if Aqua Forest sells that AZOO HOB I linked, but I used that exact model on a 5.5gal for years with great results (at a GREAT price). Something like that would be a good way to shave cost on a great looking setup.

I am jealous that you get to go in person... however, it is probably good that I live on the opposite coast and not 15 minutes away, or I would be buying stuff every weekend.

There's a few good stores in SF proper, but haven't gone in for some time because the traffic/parking is *$%@# (pardon my french :P). Only now, rather than window shopping, I have a mission .

I am sure there are a few nice stores in a great city like San Fran... but there are only 2 official ADA dealers in the entire USA... and Aqua Forest is one of them. I am kind of an ADA fanboy if you couldn't tell :P
