    Does anyone here have a juwel Lido 120?

    What are the internal dimensions of the cabinet?


    Likewise, does anyone have a fluval osaka 155? Again... what are the internal dimensions of the cabinet there?

    Could you fit a tetratec ex 1200 in either cabinet?


    (yes, i am planning a new tank) :D

    Hi Jamie

    Both cabinets will comfortably fit a Tetratec EX1200.

    I squeezed one into my Rio 125 cabinet, that is smaller all-round than both.

    I have a Juwel Lido 120, don't quote me on this but what i've seen of FX5s in pictures you could probably almost get one of those in.

    thanks for the replies....


    So the osaka cabinet is not divided in half inside?


    Hmmmm....


    Decisions decisions!

    Does anyone have experience of the osaka tanks? I saw on the PFK forums that some people have build quality issues with them...

    The lido internal filter is siliconed on the inside so it would be simpler to get the Osaka, I also prefer the Osaka because it has rounded glass at the front rather than silicone and it looks better quality.

    So my vote would go to the osaka

    Hi I have a lido 120 but not a cabinet for it, I also have a osaka 320 and the quality of it is excellent also the looks with the hanging lights is great. You can also get an extra light unit like myself if you think it necesary. My vote would be with the osaka even though it costs more.
