bitFUUL's GLA Rimless 12 Gallon Long - Mango Tank

So I got yet another tank, I've been eyeing these 12 gallon longs for a bit now.
Don't know exactly what flora/fauna yet, but for now I'm probably going with Mango substrate and possibly Carambola as well.

How much does that one cost?

Did you get it when it was on sale? I saw the sale but it was already sold out by then.

GLA had a sale on their tanks and I didn't really see it advertised anywhere.
So I picked up the 61-C with cabinet (drove 2 hours to pick it up), and couldn't pass up the 12 gallon long for $59 + $14 shipping.
I've got too many tanks, I don't know what to do with them all!

12 Long is now out of stock, I tried to order one yesterday and now they pulled it from the site. All they got left is 74-S for $225 and low iron 6g for $49 which is still a great deal if you want something with those dimensions.

Sure, but they only have 2 tank sizes left (no more 12gallon longs).

The 5.5 high clarity (mini-m style) is a great price.

The 36-L is Mini-M dimensions? If so I might have to seriously consider it.

According to the dimensions on both GLA and ADG sites, they are the same.

Not quite.
Mini M: 14Lx8Wx10H (5.5 gallons) ~$105 shipped

36-L: 15Lx9wx11H (6 gallons) ~$65 shipped

The 36-L seems like a much better deal. Not only does it hold more water, but it is also almost half the price of the Mini M. Both are clear glass, though. I guess the major decision point here would be the brand name.

Take a look at the measurements on both sites again. Seeing how both tanks were made in cm, when converted to inches, one of the sites rounded up. According to their measurements in cm, they are the same tanks.
