All in One or no All in One!!!!!!!
Has anyone has any expeirience with nano reef all in ones because im killing myself trying to figure out what to get. It's a good deal but the shipping will be expencive with the weight and everybody that gets one ussually mods it to make it in working condition.

Thanks i just wanna know some peoples experienses with the all in ones.

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 (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.

to be honest i actually am seriouss lol. Thats why im looking for a cheaper route. And i emaild the glass gusy and they can only ship acrylic and stuff.

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.

Brandon 01-03-2007 04:01 PM

But i thought acrylic yellows after time and everyone that gets one hates them. And compared to the priced in canada i think there good. ( i was in walmart the otherday and looked at tanks for like a 30 gallon its 160 bucks. :O

Brandon 01-03-2007 04:15 PM

See heres a tank with an american price and its acrylic :( Price is still high
