I like these 7 gal tanks mostly because of their neat look and the fact
that they cost less than the Eclipse 5 gal.   The bowfront look (if you
like it) beats a simple 10 gal.   In addition, they allow me to place a
simple Whisper filter on for Co2 dissolution  and the hood is easy to
retrofit with CF lights.  You can take a peek at Mike's Tank here at a
beginner's attempt at a planted bowfront to judge for yourself:
