12 Gallon Mr. Aqua Bookshelf Aquarium
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.

Small & Elegant By Tempset on 6/21/2016Tempset would recommend this product to a friendThe 12gallon bookshelf aquarium is everything the title leads you to imagine. The entire tank is simply 5 pieces of glass carefully measured & polished and put together well. They use non-tempered glass(in case you had plans of drilling a hole or 2).
I purchased the regular tank & not the low iron & I am having absolutely no regrets. I can see very clearly through the tank. The concept here is spot on. It's a blank canvas in which to build your own system upon.
The ONLY change I would make is to include an optional "false" wall as I plan to create. A false wall would allow surface skimming through cut in teeth. It would allow hiding of basic filtration materials. And the best reason to use a false wall is that it removes the need to drill the tank(which cannot be undone).
Other than this optional add-on, it is my opinion that this tank is a perfect fit for anyone who wants to create & enjoy their own little aquatic world.
