I went to an LFS today and saw several interesting looking NANO's built by Mr. Aqua(some asian, possibly japanese, company). At first I was so surprised at the selection of nano tanks available but the ones that I really wanted were marked up way too high.

I was wondering if anybody else out there have any nanos that they would like to sell. Ofcourse, I'd prefer local pickup in southern california, but if...the tank + shipping costs evens out to what I'm expecting, then I'm game.

I'm currently lookiing for rimless top tanks. I dont' mind if the bottom is rimless or not...so if you have something, let me know..we can work out a deal. Thanks for reading.

I saw those too. The only thing I didn't like about the nano tanks at tong's was the fact that some of them had very sloppy silicon. On the rimless cubes some of the pieces of glass weren't even squared up. I ended up buying a 5g cube from Petown for $20 and it is constructed much better.

I actually witnessed that too. Those were teh cheaper kind. There's another one that I really liked. It had a bowfront, but I didn't mind that...I could've just turned it around and use the bowfront as the back. The silicon glueing was quite all right on that. I do have a petown 5 gallon, but I kind of want the non-cube one right now.

Yea, that is true some of the large nano tanks were nicer. The bowfronts had a little thicker glass too which was nice. It was just the little glass cubes that were real sloppy.

for as thin of glass as it was, it was very green...

low quality glass...cheap construction = 500% markup @ tong's
