| | Fluval Flora & Ebi Nanos... Anyone have one of these?
Hello again everyone, its been a couple years (or more) since I've been around APC. I had to finish up college and learn how to swim in the real world. Anyway, I finally got a decent job so I'm getting back into the hobby. So far I've been occupied upgrading the equipment on my 30 gallon planted tank and its semi-planted 30 gallon counterpart- my oddball fish tank.
But I've been wanting to start something new and I've been considering setting up a shrimp only nano. I would of course love to go all out and start out with ADA products but my 'decent' paycheck only goes so far (and hey, I got all those wonderful student loans to pay off now :P ).
So I'm looking for something less expensive, yet nice looking, and I'm finding myself drawn to the new line of Fluval nano kits... particularly the Fluval Ebi, since I mostly want to keep shrimp and I'm not sure I'm ready to jump into CO2 yet.
Has anyone purchased one of these? Or at least seen one in the wild? Do they look nice up close? Or are they made of cheap materials?
Also, what do you guys think of the specs?
