Fluval edge aquarium?

I was wondering if anyone here had used a Fluval edge aquarium and could comment on the pros and cons? I was especially wondering about temperature (no in built heater) and oxygen exchange (limited water surface area). Also how hard are they to maintain and clean? I was thinking of getting one as a planted shrimp tank to replace an old 5g acrylic tank that is badly scratched.

You have to buy the fluval edge heater for this tank.
Ther is only a very small opening on the top to perform maintenance through.(under the light hood)

Honestly i think it is a beutiful tank. The cons jessicasmarine has stated but it really depends if you are gonna put the extra work in for a more beutiful tank. Me personaly i think i would do it if i really liked it.
