At one time, I had several tanks and have kept many different species. When we moved 2 years ago, I gave my last tank away to my sister. Now that my oldest daughter is 5, I'm thinking about a new tank for the house, but I'm not sure what I should get. We have a "bar" between our kitchen and dining room that isn't used for anything at the moment. I think it would be the perfect place for a new tank, but I would need a tank that looks good from both sides (in other words, no huge filter hanging off the bank, big mess of cords, etc.). Since it won't be up against a wall, I want to make sure the cords can be easily hidden. Should I go with a (relatively) inexpensive "normal" 10g tank and somehow hide the cords? Or would I be better off with a Fluval Edge or something like it? How do you hide the cords for your tank in a pretty much free-standing environment? I'm not looking for a tank with a huge footprint. I plan on ordering a tank from Amazon, as I have about $200 in credit there to spend on a tank, substrate, decorations, etc. It will be my first fully planted tank - in the past, I've only kept 1 or 2 live plants in a tank.
