Can we use this tank? https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/3-gallon-rimless-aquarium-mr-aqua.html

 

Can just put the bow to a back if the bow is a problem?

Thanks for sharing that deal.  I love deals, so I quickly added 6 to my cart as well.  But then I thought to myself: what am I going to do with 6 of these?

I'm going to hoard them till I find some project for them. Might try a freshwater planted shrimp tank or something. I have 2 JBJ Picotopes that are like 3 gallons each, I bet they would work well with these filters for a low flow project

Absolutely nothing. I thought about it, but self restraint won.

Marie Kondo: Does this pile of identical plastic HOB filters spark joy for you?

MetaTank: Yes. Yes they do. 

Marie Kondo: 🤔

6 picos all lined up in a row... or one of the longgg betta tanks that come with glass dividers with a filter in each divider. 

 

I am sure someone could turn this into some reef version housing little strange little critters in each one.

Does that include the cost of a suction cup though?

The suction cup was an extra that was sent with a submersible glass heater, and the box was "garbage", so I'm calculating the $0.04 cost as the cost of the extra suction cup....lol

 

 

We can ramp the value up to $0.25 if you like

so i posted in my thread, but thoughts on a yellow-tail blue damsel? I've seen them in picotopes, 2.5s before, just not sure it's the best idea.
