I'm interested in this as well... My wife found a place about 40 minutes away that have rimless tanks. They are pricey but were going to look Saturday. I'll update in my own thread. Sorry OP for the slight hijack but I'm very interested in what you think of your tanks. Following along.

I got the Mr. Aqua as a direct recommendation from Brian and I really liked it. however, the 20 bucks difference is pretty much the price of almost all the substrate I need to all tanks (or a driftwood or whatever).

At this point, I will pull the trigger and get a second TruAqua, I have no reasons to justify the price difference and get the Mr. Aqua.

Can't really see the silicon work, but it is just "less silicone" than Mr. Aqua.

As long as the tank holds water and you can't see the silicone work, that means it's not sloppy and it's done with precision. Good stuff! I ordered the 2g cube... it's like the Do!Aqua 2g at a lower price point shipped + a superior quality glass. Only thing missing is a fancy ADA or Do!Aqua sticker which I'm totally fine not having -- my wallet agrees.

I am definitely ordering my 3rd tank from them, but I may also get some of the smaler cubes for water changes, nursery or even keeping plants prior to inception.

Sounds good. Most people get those cheap 5 or 10g framed tanks from the dollar/gallon sale at petco.. Never thought of a fancy rimless for that task! Haha, that's classy thinking there buddy!

Here's an example of the 2g cube I'll just mess around with. This is the do!aqua.. But i got myself a fancy aquatop!

Black background, black substrate and even a cheap green cabomba with a well placed stine and you have an impressive nano!

I definitely agree! I may just have to pick one of those up... Or two... Or three... Man my house is running out of tank space quickly.
