Entertainment Unit, Bookshelf and Fish Tank | 3D Warehouse

The names Tyler! I'm from Conway, Arkansas. Currently a college student majoring in Radiology. Anyway, enough with my intro. After rummaging around my old storage unit, I came across a 6.6 Gallon Long tank that I used years ago (Petco used to sell this tank, aka the bookshelf tank, not sure if they do now). As my semester winds down, I'm wanting to start a fish tank again.

Probably the only annoying feature of the tanks is the lid that opens in order to feed the fish. It is tiny! It is so tiny that I sometimes make a slight mess when feeding my fish. When you add fish or capture them you will have to remove the entire light and the clear hood. So wherever you set up your tank make sure you have room to set the light and hood aside in order to keep your hands free. And although they call this a "bookshelf" tank, I recommend having at least eight to ten inches of elbow room above the tank so that you can do water changes, clean and maintain the tank. I learned this the hard way after setting them all at once and not allowing enough room for maintenance.

I snapped a few pictures before feeding the fish today. The Bookshelf tank is basically filled in. I’m starting to get a little bit of algae in this tank, but the combination of shrimp/baby bristlenose are keeping the problem at bay. If anyone has found a good solution for getting consistent and constant water circulation in a tank of this dimension, please comment below.

Mr. Aqua 12 Gallon bookshelf tanks comes in two different types of glass. Either standard glass which is going to be the most economical option, then they also offer Low Iron glass which gives the tank an extra clear appeal making the glass almost invisible. Most standard glass will give a slight discoloration to your fish and corals, but unless you are looking at the two tanks side by side it is hard to see a difference with the naked eye. For the slight extra cost of the Low Iron glass with the Mr. Aqua tanks we would highly recommend it.Mr. Aqua 12 Gallon bookshelf tanks comes in two different types of glass.
