The new Illuminata trimless aquarium line from Oceanic is truly an eye catcher. The tank we see is 57 gallon aquarium with a 36 x 18 footprint which is scheduled to be available in the May time frame. This unit is a prototype using a stock Mega-Flow overflow but we made our case for a slimmer tech-style overflow to finish off the look. The illuminata will be available without an overflow and the pricing will start in the neighborhood of $300. Although it doesn’t feature high clarity glass, the Illuminata does suggest that US aquarists may finally enjoy widely available modern designs in aquariums and trimless glass.
