Good bang for your buck

The JBJ 20 gallon frag tank arived in a timely manner, and perfectly packaged thus protecting it from the UPS monster great guys but man they can toss boxes around and sometimes manage to even break tatanium! OK let's get down to the tank; it's an all glass and silicone asembly with the fuge, filter, and pump partition being an acrylic pice. The silicone job is extremely well done, and solid clean seals. There were some reviews I read before purchasing this tank, that mentioned a bad silicone job not the case with this particular tank. The best of all is that bent glass front it's a nice look. The back side of this baby has worked well for me, the filtration compartment is roomy and allows for what ever it is you decide to put in there, it comes with some charcoal, and a big block of sponge useful some times but like I said the room is great to put what ever combination of filtration media your heart desires. The fuge area I am happy with; I personally have some algie the media it also came with and some live rock, I am only keeping soft corals so I do not have a skimmer, I do water changes on a strict schedule, but if a skimmer and whatever other toys you must run is what your looking for it certainly has the room for it. The pump heater area is exactly just that and it does the trick for me. The pump and the outlet spray bar; I was originally skeptical about these features but I am happy with them, and actually the flow is really good for my personal aplication. All around for the money it's a good tank, I am planing on getting another one for hard coral.

It' ok

The tank is really nice looking. But I gave 3.5 stars do to a couple of beefs I have. 1. The tank looked like it was a slap together very dirty had to do a lot of cleanup on it. 2. The rear cover is a thin piece of plastic that just bows with some condensation. Had to cut it in 3 sections to work. (or just don't use it) 3. The wand is to low in the tank. So if you want to make a shallow reef you will have to adapt some fittings to raise it a bit. 4. Over priced for the quality you are getting. Other than that it"s pleasing to look at as shallow reef. I am enjoying it.

Ordered the JBJ frag tank and received it in great shape, well packaged, and complete.. Nice clear curved corner glass aquarium, well constructed with only complaint being the silicone on bottom of tank joints could have been a bit better cleaned up. The filter area is nice size for this size of tank and has a very nice black wall and cover to hide the area. Very pleased and would buy again.. Especially if they had a larger version LoL.
