I'm planning to start up a small saltwater tank soon, and was wondering which tank was better - the 12 gallon aquapod or the 12 gallon nano deluxe. This will be my first time with saltwater, although I've kept freshwater for several years. I've done quite a bit of research, and I know that a tank this small is not the best place to start, but I'm limited on space. I'm only planning to keep a clownfish, maybe a goby of some sort, and a few soft corals in it. Any help would be really appreciated!

Sorry, I am not sure which products you are considering, can you post a link to the exact products...

Hmmm, I do see some differences in the specs but I'm sorry, I would really need to see them both in person to pick a winner with regard to filtration and overall quality. If I think about it, I will try and compare them next time I am in the LFS. At first glance, I noticed the AquaPod does not show a lid in the photo---if you are planning on keeping fish, I would caution you about jumping. I have known several people who have lost nice fish over the years due to them jumping out of the tank.

You're right, FloridaBoy, I definitely wouldn't want a tank without a lid, but the aquapod in the picture at the top was the 24 gallon - the 12 gallon was a little farther down the page and has a lid. Very Happy I've decided to go ahead and go with the aquapod, because I liked the higher lighting that it offered. Thanks anyway!

Very good, come back and give us a review after you set it up and try it for a few weeks...
