EcoPico Desktop Aquarium by Ecoxotic – Video Part 1

Posted on Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 at 9:56 pm by

We recently got two EcoPicos from Ecoxotic, the basic version (EcoPico Desktop Aquarium) and the reef version (EcoPico Desktop Reef). In part one, we will focus on a VERY basic initial freshwater setup of the EcoPIco Desktop Aquarium. We will document the transformation of this tank as it matures. In later parts, we will get to the reef setup as well (which is now cycling).

The EcoPico Desktop Aquarium is a 5.1 gallon tank, measuring 10″ x 10″ x 12″. It comes with an aquarium filter & pump pushing out 80gph, and a very slick 9 Watts LED arm light with 2x12K white and 1x453nm actinic bulbs. Our first impression was just how clean the setup is. The rimless tank with black silicone looks great on the desktop and with only a few wires hanging off the back (light, filter, heater) we did not find it overbearing at all. Our favorite part is definitively the EcoPico LED Arm Light. If you’ve only seen it online, you should definitely check it out.

We included a quick video we shot. Please share it and tell us what you think. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel. Make sure to watch the video in HD!

    Can you please explain all the accessories you used in this tank? I would like to make one just like it!

      The only thing we added was the 25W Fluval Edge Compact Heater. Other than that, the tank, lights and pump are provided with the EcoPico package. We also painted the back black.
