- 7.5 Gallon Rimless Bow Front Aquarium - Mr. Aqua (DISCONTINUED)
7.5 Gallon Mr. Aqua Cube Aquarium
The Mr. Aqua 7.5 Gallon Bowfront tank is an awesome little nano tank that can easily be placed on your desk, kitchen counter, or really anywhere with its small size. The small pico tanks are best for smaller species of fish, corals and invertebrates. Many people will use these tanks for a single species of coral, or invertebrate that may be a bit harder to keep in a larger community system. The Mini bow front tanks can be drilled on the backs as they are not tempered if you wish to add a sump or closed loop water flow system.
Glass thickness: 5mm
Dimensions: 18.1" x 9.4" x 10.2"
Total Volume: 7.5 US Gallons
Great betta tank! By Bettaowner on 3/22/2019Bettaowner would recommend this product to a friendI bought this tank from BRS several years ago but only set it up a few months ago. This is my first aquarium so I kept it simple and set it up as a freshwater planted tank with a betta and 4 Amano shrimp. It’s the perfect size for the top of a bookshelf. You can tell it’s a much nicer/better built tank than small tanks available elsewhere. My only complaint is no ready made lid is available, but I fixed that by cutting a piece of plexiglass and buying some rimless tank lid clips on amazon. I was also able to make custom cut outs on the custom I’d for the light and cords.
Love this tank By Rachael on 12/2/2017Rachael would recommend this product to a friendWonderful tank. Looks attractive, glass is sturdy, and the space is perfect. Also packed impeccably well, and the brs crew even signed the box in thanns which I loved. No visinle silicone. Completely seamless ! Love it
Great first tank! By Nina on 10/6/2017Nina would recommend this product to a friendI've had this tank for a few weeks now and I really love it! BRS was really helpful in correcting my order from the smaller 3gal tank in exchange for this larger one. Shipped quickly and arrived very well packaged, no damage at all. The bow front design is really nice, albeit a little challenging when it comes to finding a suitable lid.
Perfect! By Tai on 4/9/2017Tai would recommend this product to a friendI spent months looking for a tank when I stumbled across this one. It's absolutely perfect. Everything I wanted. It so clear and clean its almost like there is no tank! Tank came well package, I mean very well packaged. I would definitely recommend to a family or friend.
Misleading product description 6.75 not equal to 7.5 By Olitheengineer on 4/6/2017Olitheengineer wouldn't recommend this product to a friendUsually when you order a tank, say a ten gallon tank, you can expect that the tank will contain ten gallons of water. Wouldn't it be crazy if we lived in a world where 7.5 gallon aquariums contained 7.5 gallons of water?!?!?! Apparently that's too much to ask for from Mr. Aqua. This tank actually contains 6.75 gallons of water. The 7.5 advertised is the result of calculating the volume as it it were a rectangular prism with dimensions equal to the max dimensions of the tank. However as is obvious; this is not a rectangular prism shaped aquarium. I was made aware of the disparity in volumes when I decided to model the aquarium in a program in order to make a custom lid. Using this software I was able to calculate that the actual capacity of the tank is just under 6.75 gallons. Now, despite this frustrating error in the manufacturer's basic arithmetic the tank itself is decent. It isn't by any means exceptional but It will do the job while looking attractive. As an engineer however I lose a lot of peace of mind in using a product when such obvious mistakes are made as described above. How can I trust that they tested the integrity of their seams when they did not test the integrity of their calculations. The clarity of the glass is mediocre with variations throughout. Overall, this is a good beginner aquarium or desk aquarium as long as you don't mind the lackluster accountability on behalf of the manufacturer. I'd recommend this product to a trashcan.
p.s.: I may seem like a jerk but that is just because I have standards. Even for what I'd expect at the $50 price point this is not worth the trouble. I am also a little bitter because I bought this to make a species tank that really needs just a tiny bit more than 7 gallons of water and ended up spending around $600 (triple my budget oops) and now have to find a new tank and start the long cycling process all over again.
My feelings towards the product however are not parallel to loyalty I have to BRS. I will continue to support the store but it is certain that I will not buy another Mr. Aqua tank.
TLDR: 6.75 gallons not 7.5 gallons. Math is hard for Mr. Aqua. #trustmeimanengineer
Gorgeous little tank By Cerissa on 9/8/2016Cerissa would recommend this product to a friendExcellent little tank. Well made and clarity fantastic. Packaging and shipping great. No complaints.
Great Bowfront Aquarium By Erin on 8/20/2016Erin wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis tank was just what I was looking for but I wasn't sure about ordering it because it doesn't seem to be available anywhere else. I decided to go for it and it's perfect. The tank is well made, shipping was fast and it was well protected.

Nice Quality By Mark on 2/14/2016Mark would recommend this product to a friendI originally wanted to make a 5.5 gallon counter top reef aquarium. When I went to all the local stores the tanks I found were poor quality with ugly, crooked silicone lines in the corners. Then I stumbled across this one. The beveled edges and the clean silicone job makes it look very high quality and attractive. The cost of shipping was super cheap for a glass aquarium. It was well packaged and arrived quickly and undamaged. I'm glad I didn't settle for what I could find locally. I ended up buying a yoga mat that I cut and put under it because I forgot to order the one that is made for it. That didn't save me any money though so don't forget to pick up the mat that goes under it too.
Is there a lid or canopy available for this tank?
At this time we do not carry any lids for the Mr. Aqua Tanks. With the smaller tanks like the Mr. Aqua bow fronts, you could easily DIY a top out of acrylic that you can pick up at your local hardware store for pretty cheap, and with the Innovative Marine Screen Screen Top Suspension Clips that can support the top you create.
Is this 9.4" wide or high? Thanks
This is 9.4" front to back and 10.2" high. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
What type of led light do you suggest for this tank?
We recommend the Kessil A160 Tuna blue for a very nice light! additionally you could work with the single Par38 bulb by Rapid LED and simply mount it with a light socket. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
