Never even heard of it. I would be interested to see how it works out. What does it cost? Any specs? I'm just too lazy to google it right now. HA!

It's a 3 gallon glass PicoBow -- made with extra clear glass --- rimless

I contacted the manufacturer and it is not tempered so it should be drillable.

basically $23 plus shipping --- a little pricey for 3 gallons but I guess thats what you have to pay for a quality built tank.

Check out the MarineDepot link below.

Drillable? You going to drill it and put a 55 gallon sump under it? Now that would be pretty cool!

Drill it yes but only a 2.5 gallon sump/refugium. Tired of HOB filters and the suface skimmer attachment. I want something easy for a change.

Drilled with some type of overflow and also drilled for the return line so there is nothing exposed looking over the top of the PicoBow except lights and I think I found the most perfect extra expensive option for lights --- LOL

I need to start selling more stuff on E-bay to fund this adventure.

Hey Kyroguy,

Sure wish this forum was still active link in the past.

Anyway had to change my setup around as the Mr. Aqua 3 gal minibow wasn't going to accept the lighting I wanted to use.

I switched to a CADlights 9 gallon tank with an Eco-Lamps KR91-14" LED lighting. I got the lighting and the tank is on it's way.

Going to let my 10 year old son start up the old Minibow :-))

Lighting small tanks is not easy. I wanted to go to a T5 setup for actinics, no go on the minibow. They don't make them that short.

I wish the forum was as active as in the past too. Maybe we can get it going again!

I can't believe my eyes!

Ever since the server update the forum has been a bit buggy for me. I have problems posting, it always times out when posting to a thread. I also don't get email updates to new posts on threads which makes it tough to follow them. Any ideas?

  Found this link buried in my favorites. This is the most recent thread posted to.

Frankly, I'd never heard of that little tank but really like the quality look of it.

How's this for the longest spread between posts?
