Okay, but could be improved

I bought this tank to house a mantis shrimp I got with live rock. I didn't want to spend too much money since we other tanks have already bled me dry. The price is right, as is the look, However, the seams on the acrylic backing (partitioning off the sump area) leaked water, out of the box. I had to use silicone so that the filtration would work properly. Also, the lights look terrible. Unfortunately, they're being compared to a tank with T5HO and another with an Ecotech Radion, which accentuates the flaws. Eventually, I'm going to have to spend more money replacing the lights. On the other hand, the tank is surprisingly quiet (especially after putting a filter pad under the return pump to muffle its vibrations). And like I said, it's an attractive looking addition to my collection of tanks.
