Beautiful Aquarium. The glass and stand are very modern and well built. Only problem in my opinion is the pump that it comes with. I do not think it is that great. I did not purcahse the tank with the protein skimmer because after much research I felt for the difference in price you could get something much better. Also how is it possible that they do not send instructions for the plumbing?

Very high quality. Impressed overall with the stand and the tank. These are clearly high quality products. The sump is also amazing, it's glass and very well built. Assembly of the plumbing was a little confusing and I am a bit nervous as the pipes just slid into each other, the points and pieces weren't screw connected as I would have expected them to be. I am worried they may slip out and flood my apartment. I may need to join them with pipe cement or replace them with a version were the ends and joints screw together like house plumbing does. Other than that, the tank and stand are beautiful, high gloss paint. I filled mine with black sand and the whole set up looks really sharp. Can't wait to get corals and fish in it.

This is a very nice tank! The stand Iooks good it's made from real wood now. I did hear bad things from the old stand. The only thing with this new stand is the doors might need to be alittle adjusted one of the doors was a little higher than the other one. It's no big deal just use a screw driver to adjust. Another good thing is this aquarium is super quit! My vortechs are louder than the overflow! All in all I give this setup an A+.

was between this and an elos system- arrived VERY fast and staff is very helpful. wish the cabinet was made of higher quality material and was a more shiny laquer- it's more of a matte finish. the plumping and motor are all chinese made but overall system seems sturdy and good for the price. I would recommend the system
