Comments: We ordered this aquarium at the beginning of September, and it arrived in about a week and a half. It was packaged for shipment very well, there was no damage at all. We did not order the CADlights skimmer and instead opted for the Reef Octopus space saver skimmer which fits perfectly in the sump. The cabinet is beautiful and nicely finished and the glass in the tank is flawless. So no complaints on that front. I do have a couple of gripes I have to complain about. The "instructions" that CADLights provides are not adequate if you have never plumbed and/or ran a tank with a sump before. They tell you to go to a link on their website, but it is a very poor set of instructions. Also - several of the pipes that were provided were too long. We had to cut them down so everything would fit underneath. I'm also not crazy about the glass hood. Its 3 individual pieces of glass that you connect together with these plastic pieces to create one piece. It doesn't look very appealing at all given the overall look of the tank. It looks more like an after thought rather than a design element of the tank. I understand a solid piece of glass for the top would probably be way too heavy, but I'm not a fan of how it looks. Also - this thing is a beast! Shipping weight was 505 lbs. We figured a rough estimate of total weight after the sand and rock we have (which isn't a whole lot) it's probably close to 1700 lbs full. We had to add additional bracing in our crawl space under the tank because the floor was bowing. So - plan accordingly! Overall very happy with the tank - it's miles ahead of where I was before and look beautiful!

Comments: I am overjoyed at the product! It is nice to look at and boy is it sturdy! However you could include at least some sketches of the system and instructions on the operation of the skimmer! Other than no directions included, I love it and it looks great in my living room, across from my Red Sea Aquarium which by the way comes with very good instructional booklet. Mike
