No stand for me, pico is going to be sitting on my nightstand next to my bed.

I would not be able to sleep if I had a tank in my bedroom 😂

I’ve got that Evo on my dresser in mine, right under the TV. It’s okay though there’s enough background noise from fan and air filter to drown out any tank sounds. And the light goes off at night

I still couldn’t do it I thought about setting up the old school 2.5 in the living room but the ole lady limited me to having two tanks

This is tank #2 in my bedroom. I fall asleep to the sounds of the protein skimmer on the 40g. When it’s too quiet it’s too loud for me, my ears start ringing.

Is there anything wrong with the little AquaTop AIOs?

I have liked the look of this little compact tank for over a year now... seriously wants it. Has anybody used one? 

I haven't used that exact tank but I had a low iron aquatop before and no complaints. The silicone was cleanly done.

I've seen it on display in my LFS and it almost looks like it's got no corners, they were so cleanly seamed. Hopefully I can convince the hubby to let me do the competition, and I can snag one of these little tanks.

I have three tanks in my bedroom. The sound of water rushing down the pipes or trickling out of the filter actually helps me sleep better. 😊

That's a really cute tank! And at a good price too! I do wonder how the filtration is set up - it looks like a pretty skinny little box. It may not be super modifiable.

OH that is a nice tank! pretty good price too. I agree about the filtration i have a feeling it's more of a FW tank. they dont say what the K  the lighting is. I think WC would be a must on this tank.  

someone get it a try it.

Not allowed a tank in the bedroom. My jokes about a different sort of clam diving didn't go down (haha) to well 😢

I've been reefing since my senior year of high school in 2004, but I've been keeping fish (I started with livebearers and lots of breeding projects) back when I was seven years old- so twenty-five years of fishkeeping so far 🙂

Since 1967. Aquariums always were 50g or more. Recently sold my DSA 105g full reef system and building nano and Pico as Ino longer have the space for larger systems.
