This glass cubic tank has a stylish black backdrop with black borders on the joined glass corners. A solid black background such as this offers a non-distracting surface to see your fish against. It’s much more attractive than other tanks with a clear back (nobody’s wall is all that enjoyable to stare at), and in comparison to white or colored backdrops, it lets you see your fish better as they are illuminated from the lights above.

By still offering the same 50 gallon capacity of larger tanks in a very small footprint, it’s suitable for those wanting a large aquarium in a tight space. It’s only two feet wide and two feet deep, so you can rest this aquarium on a slim profile stand that doesn’t demand a ton of room from you.

This is a solid foundation for your aquarium, but it’s not a complete kit, so you’ll need some basic extras – namely a filter (with pump), lights, and a heater. Those components aren’t difficult to source and can be made in the same online order. Find and check the stock availability of the Starfire Rimless 50 Gallon Aquarium here
