The Beta Mini Cube is a novel, modern looking small aquarium which is packing some serious features for a beta setup. Low power LED light, curved acrylic front pane and a built-in filter in the rear makes this small aquarium the Bentley of beta bowls.
We don’t know how many times we’ve cringed at the site of nano reefers taking a perfectly good nano tank and butchering it with a load of excessive and unnecessary mods and partitions. With the Beta Mini Cube the prospective pico reefer will be able to take the 8 liter/2 gallon stock aquarium and do all of their DIY alchemy right within the built in rear partition, making for a much more classy set up over all.
The LED light is bright enough to see by but for any corals or plants that are more demanding than mushrooms, zoanthids or moss, you’ll want to provide your Beta Mini Cube with at least some supplemental light, even ambient light would give this tiny tank a good photosynthetic bump.
The Beta Mini Cube we spied at Tropical Paradise in Eastleigh Southampton, UK was resting comfortably on the counter, right next to the register. Tropical Paradise had a ton of these in stock for £50 although we expect a US appearance would cost in the $50 range. With it’s small price, built in filter and contemporary open topped appearance, the Beta Mini Cube could be a great starting point for making some amazing, full featured pico reefs.
