Excellent Show Tank!
Posted: 12/2/2013 from SILVERDALE, WA UNITED STATES
The time for the aquarium to be boxed and handed over to the carrier (FedEx) took nearly 5 business days, but once it was on the road it got here quickly, from LA in 3 days. The packaging was EXCELLENT, and the tank was in pristine condition on arrival.
Upon opening, found that the tank was everything I expected EXCEPT the back two edges are not rounded like the front edges are. That is a small detraction, the quality of the tank is excellent.
Went without the empty black hood that came with the tank and mounted my Current USA Nova Extreme 36W T5HO fixture, which I had on my old glass 10 gallon, easily to the new Clear-For-Life tank. The AquaClear 50 HOB power filter fit through the slot for the filter snugly, and everything else went into the tank like a charm.
Found that the acrylic stood up well to the addition of egg crate light diffuser grating (for reinforcement of the slope I'm trying to achieve with my substrate), a large 10# chunk of Mopani driftwood, and all of the SeaChem Fluorite substrate, despite what I'd heard about potential scratches, especially during addition of substrate.
The tank is crystal clear, and very bright. I think I'll love this tank as I am now for quite some time. I would recommend this tank to anyone looking for a great showcase tank!
