can you show us what one your looking at? i still think you should do your own tank,there much beter looking than those kits.but i just like square tanks,maybe you like the curved edges and the easy built is filters on the kits.

I dont like the curved edges its just that it comes with the tank a skimmer a filter a light and stuff. I would have to buy a tank and everything seperate and tanks here in ontario are like 100 bucks for a 10 gallon new.

Im not saying this exact one but its still a pretty good deal seeing as the lights that im gonna have to buy will cost the same as the whole setup.

Because i might go the sump route and that is a fair bit of money.

Omg now im kinda leaning toward www.glasscages.com (many 20 tall/long or 30) depending on shipping prices.

has anyone had any luck with these guys?


Also should i get 30" long or 24" long? (for corals and lr)

I looked at those glass cages and they look like a standard tank with some glued on peices of glass for a filter. you can do better. When you say a new 10 gallon tank is a hundred bucks. your not being serious rite? because around here a brand new tetra-fin 10 gallon tank is 10 buck.

brandon its relly hard for me to belive the tanks are that expensive. but i will take your work. If you want a nice glass tank i could buy it localy and i would ship it Cause i dont know if you will be satisfied with a acrilic tank. they bow out a lot and just dont look very good.+ they will scratch. I can get the tank for 20-25 bucks(im guessing) I have not clue what shipping would be i could prolly box it in some scrap wood i have liing around. If you dont like that than try a local search and check your gregslist to see if anyone is geting rid of one.
When you say a 10 gallon tank is 100 buck what kind of tanks are you talking about? Brand? style? a bowfront will add extra costs and some brands are extremely high priced. look for all-glass of tetrafin.

i just looked at the critter cages website again and there prices are high. im sure there very good tanks but still the price is high. If i would recemend one of there tanks i would go for those acrilic cubes. they make awsome looking reefs.
