    I’ve been offered a DO aqua 35x26x22 nano for £30, is that reasonable? It’s immaculate! Can’t find what the retail price was!

    Worth the buy?

    Thanks for the reply guys!

    I presume they are ADA’s budget range?
    Any idea what the retail price was?

    Do aqua tanks are similar to ADA but regular glass (not so noticeable in the nano tanks), silicone work not quite as nice (at least in those I saw) and retailed at my lfs @ half the price of its ADA counterpart

    I glanced at local price and that sounds close to what I’d expect to pay retail
    But if it’s immaculate and you like it ... and they aren’t being made any longer - at least that’s the claim of the local ADA rep

    Didn’t like the tank, too small for what I wanted to do anyway and turns out it wasn’t the bargain I wanted, however, this was:

    Apologies for the terrible phone pictures.

    This is my new 50x40x25 optiwhite it’s not perfect by any means, the silicone work is not ADA standard but was on par with the do aqua I was looking at! All for the same price, £30!

    Now to get planning! Will start a journal soon, just gathering the bits over the next month!

    Thanks

    Well, I’m still deciding but it’s either gonna be “Thoms puddle of mud” paying homage to “toms bucket of mud”

    Or

    I also love TBRO’s current scape so maybe a shallow nature aquarium, with emergent growth?!?

    Just deciding whether i wanna go balls out with co2 and everything or go back to what I’m used to and let it run itself!

    Go hard I say, an emersed jungle would look amazing on that shallow and deep tank. :D
