Default JBJ Nano Tank into Dart Tank

Hi, I was thinking about setting up one of these into a dart tank.
Has anyone made the 24g Nano Cube into a Dart Tank? I thought it would be a nice clean looking setup. Do you think its a good idea? Would The lights be too much heat for such a small tank? You could always take one of the bulbs out and you can get the bulbs in 65k. You could dremel holes on the bottom of the back so water could go into the first chamber and have a pump fill up the second chamber with the filter and have the clean water flow out the outlet to make a waterfall. The pump could easily be reached if any problems occured and you can siphon out and easily change the water. Of course you would have to make it FF escape proof but I dont think that would really be challenge. I just thought I would throw out an idea if no one has thought of it. Do you see anything wrong with this setup that i missed? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Do you think $200 is too much $$$ for a 18x19.6x19.7 tank?
Should i Just setup an exo-terra?
Thank You

If you guys dont know what im talking about heres a link.

I have a 24g nano cube just waiting for me to set up and get going.
I bought it about a year ago and I have not had the time to get going on it.

I am going to leave it for being a reef tank though. Way too expensive to make into a viv I think. I just bought a couple of the medium exo terra tanks this past week. Each was around $80. They actually are pretty cool little tanks. I looked into getting a 16" cube from first class aquatics but, they would have been $120 - shipped - each for the basic model. Plus the person said he was 7-8 weeks out on new orders. Too bad, because the exo terra tanks are all over the place now.... Cheaper too.

Default nano trouble

I wouldnt do it but i am not you. If you are trying to breed and arent worried about looks then go buy some cheap tupperware they are easy to drain and way cheaper.my theory is and not everyone will agree is
KISS.(keep it simple stupid)I used to freak out and worry all the time about my critters by tweaking this and tweaking that it can drive you mad
I have grown up since and realized that if you give them the basics they will do the rest.
just my opinion so dont everyone get po
