If you have decided to create your first aquascape, the first step is to choose an aquarium tank. The three important aspects to consider when selecting an aquarium tank are its appearance, durability, and size. In this article, I will explain why I recommend the ADA Cube Garden series based on these aspects. However, I want to clarify that I am not forcing you to purchase ADA products. This article is for those who are interested in Cube Garden but still hesitant or for those who want to understand why Cube Garden is relatively high-priced.

1. Appearance -Minimum, yet Gorgeous 

The ADA Cube Garden aquarium is crafted from premium quality glass that boasts exceptional transparency, surpassing that of most aquarium tanks available in the market. The glass used in the Cube Garden is remarkably thin, with a thickness of only 5mm for nano tanks. As a result, the Cube Garden provides a viewing experience that makes you feel as though there is no barrier between you and the aquatic landscape.

I want to mention how impressive the tank’s crafting is. It’s truly remarkable. The amount of silicon used to attach the glass is minimal, so there are no smudges on the glass. ADA, the company that makes the tank, is headquartered in Niigata Prefecture, which is renowned for its glass industry. It’s no surprise that ADA’s glass products are of unmatched quality!

2. Durability 

The glass used for Cube Garden is unfortunately not the most durable in the world. It is as fragile as other aquarium tanks made of glass. However, the silicon used in Cube Garden is unparalleled. In most cases, silicon weakens over time, but that is not the case for Cube Garden. It is said that Cube Garden can hold water for over a decade!

3. Size

Having only a small space doesn’t mean you can’t choose a high-quality aquarium tank. The smallest Cube Garden is only 20x20x20cm. There is always a perfect Cube Graden for you.

The lineup may change unexpectedly. For the latest information, please check the ADA official website: https://www.adana.co.jp/en/contents/products/na_tank/detail01.html


ADA Cube Garden is arguably the best aquarium tank out on market. You have only one chance to choose a tank for one scape. So you got to decide carefully. I am sure you will never regret choosing Cube Garden!
