No, I would not recommend this.
Pros: Cheap, easy all-in-one solution
Cons: Cheap plastic. Cheap lights. Hard to clean. Difficult to upgrade.
I almost started this review by saying that "This review is for the old version with PC lighting", but I noticed that they're STILL selling this with PC lighting. A small LED fixture would probably work really well here, but they're really going "old school". Sad.
The plastic in this tank - especially the interior dividers - is very flimsy.
Those curved corners look really cool until you're trying to see THROUGH them. Everything is blurry for 2-3 inches in the corners, and they're a PITA to clean - no flat surfaces for a scraper to reach.
For about $200, I'd choose an Innovative Marine 10 and something like a Kessil A80 instead. That's a no brainer. I'd probably spend about $100 more to get an AI Prime. Yeah, that's 50% more than this JBJ, but it would be 100% better at growing corals, and IMHO would be better looking, easier to use, and a lot less frustrating.

Yes, I would recommend this.
Pros: Easy setup to setup and maintain
Cons: Limited expandabilty/ customization
Great little AIO tank, simple to setup and maintain which is nice for the beginner/ intermediate aquarist.
