Thanks for all the responses, I think I am going to get one soon as I figure out where I should put it. All thats going to be in there is a betta and maybe a few ghost shrimp.

i just bought an eclipse system 6 and i love it. it simply looks SOOOOOOO great in my room on my nightstand. its small enough to where its tasteful and nice to look at but big enough to keep like 5 or 6 mollies or platties or a bunch of neons. i love it how its all contained in its own hood. silent too. cant hear a SINGLE sound coming from it. DEF get an eclipse system

Does anyone with an eclipse have advice on how to keep the lights from heating the tank into the low 90's f after a few hours? I have an eclipse 5 corner tank with some live plants and a female betta.. Need to have a light on at least 8 hrs a day because of that.

Does the eclipse corner have a incandescent light or is it florescent light? If you have a incandescent light I will be just the matter of changing to florescent. If you all ready have a florescent light then I have no idea why it is heating up the water so fast.

I was talking to the manager of a petco here a few weeks ago (who is actually a hobbist himself, the tanks were in amazing condition, possibly the best I've seen in a store) he said that the lights in an Eclipse systems tend to over-heat the aquariums, but all that you have to do in most cases is leave the flap open, hope it helps

I have a 15 gallon eclipse I use for a breeding tank for my Kribensis. I haven't had any problems but I do agree that you have to buy their replacement parts which can be pricey

thanks for the advice on the light, ive been wondering why my heaters aren't accurate enough to keep the water to a low enough temperature. ive bought 3 heaters and i couldn't figure out why none of them could keep it at an accurate temperature. it never occured to me it was the light. im gonna go out tomorrow and buy a florescent light for my tank. god that makes me angry i just spent 50 bucks on new heaters to keep the temp lower. alright, thanks guys.

I had an eclipse explorer for my betta and there weren't any problems with it.
