any links?

this needs to be robust enough to be able to take the entire weight of the tank and a flat base is advisable to ease the pressure points on the bottom of the tank

What's a good place to get a tank from?

I'm considering getting the Fluval Flex 123. Looks quite complete and aesthetically pleasing.

Any other suggestions?

Also. Do any stores here sell the Celestial Pearl Danio?

CPD most decent LFS will have once in season. They not really like neon tetra not everyday will see ones.


Fluval Flex is actually those kind of IOS tank, but complete setup with matching stuff which is not bad, havent really seen and touch one yet.

But i think this should be much better than those edge tank...hard to find replacement parts..for the setup.

Maybe you will want to see the physcial thing, as in the pump is it normal sizing , led...lights replacement.

lastly the curve shape in front will make cleaning with those scrapers / magnetic clamp brush slightly more difficult but 123l use a melamine sponge can solve all these

The Flex looks quite nice with its bowled front. Plus $450 from FnM gets me quite a lot of kit.

I'm think a 125L tank from a local maker is going to cost a lot more without any included filters, etc.

Happy to hear suggestions though. Looking for a 80cm x 40cm 125L tank.

Is this recommended? I know larger tanks are more stable but 125L is plenty no?

Any recommended companies to get a quote? N30 Google reviews are crap. =s

actually what you intend to keep in this 125L tank?
the bio load will determine what type of setup to use.

Yes. Fire shrimp is also Cherry shrimp. It is a different grade of Cherry shrimp in terms of redness.


Most places i have been dont really carry "Cherry" shrimps. If you see Fire shrimps and then the real Cherry shrimps, i think you would choose Fire shrimps.

Fire shrimps cost more than Cherry shrimps.
