This will be coming in on the next shipment because they were not able to complete production for this most recent shipment. Once it does I am not sure what retail stores it will be going to but it will for sure be available on Marinedepot and Green Leaf Aquariums

John, do you have a rough ETA for the low iron 12g? It is taking everything I have to wait on these and not just go ahead and buy the original!

February. It is coming in on our next shipment. Sorry for the wait but on top of the new LI on current versions of our tanks we are also adjusting sizes and introducing some new models so production takes a while.

How does one know the difference between the low Fe and standard glass by sight?

Low Fe is not as scratch resistant, correct? In that case I'd go with the original. It'll hold up against cat claws.

I was going to get one today.

So you guys are aware. The shipment coming in the first week of March will contain the 12gallon Low Iron (First ever!) and we have about 35-40 pieces coming in. We of course will have more in the works being made but this first round took a long time to produce as we are rolling out the MA-730, MA-821, and MA-830 in low iron for the first time so we had a tall order. We did not even get all the tanks we had made on the 40ft container that is on it's way to us right now, so we had to send a second container coming right after it.

John - thanks for the updates!

I'm personally really looking forward to replacing my current 12gal with a low-iron version.

No problem. Things have been going very well and we are trying to figure out how to keep up with demand.
