Ya I wouldn't mind those extra couple inches. That was a good reason to switch. My options were limited when I ordered. Stock was low and nano demand was high! I'm really happy with the tank, but I do dream of a future 24x24x18 build.I got the Fijicube 32G AIO: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/fijicube-32g-aio-build.839699/#post-9213420
Dimension-wise it is almost identical to the Landen 28G, but front to back it is deeper by 2 inches. also the back chambers are slightly narrower so that gives prolly another half inch of depth to the display area. Another thing I noticed is that Fijicube is quiet no matter what water level you set, whereas with the Landen I tried to tune out the water noise by adjusting water height, but could not eliminate the noise.
Same I planned to go skimmerless(for low noise build) but there was a sale for icecap Skimmer so I bought one
I bought some zoas once and it came on a clam. you can see the clam opening:
There is definitely a trickle in the back chamber. It doesn't bother me, but I understand the desire for a silent build. Did you have a media basket picked out that fit in the Landen? I made my own out of eggcrate.
I find clams to be super freaking cool. That is too neat you had one covered in zoanthids.
