Mr. Aqua or Schuber Wright?

Hey folks,
Does anyone have input on which has clearer glass? I think Wright does from what I've read, but just wanted to confirm before I make the purchase. Any other thoughts on either brand?

TIA!!

Depends upon the tank you're interested in.

If it's a cube? My pick would be the 7.5gal High-Clarity Mr. Aqua.

I'm looking for a 3 gallon-ish tank. I had no idea about Schuber Wright until they all of a sudden popped up on Amazon. I did a search and there wasn't too much in terms of details that I found.

Check the Finnex/Schuber Wright sub-forum here on TPT.

I setup the 6gallon version of the Schuber Wright tank. One defining design aspect of their tank is the beveled foreglass. Mine came without the blue Schuber Wright logo in the lower right corner but otherwise looked pretty good. The tank came with Low-E glass and tank mat preinstalled. The mat is definitely a very nice touch. If you have any specific questions, you can speak with Lowe on tpt.

I'd say the mr aqua or do aqua tanks would be considered if you wanted a cube dimensioned tank. Its up to personal perference really as the quality all seems to be pretty good in this price range.

If you want a 3G, the best sized tank is the JBJ 3G Picotope. Check my sig if you are curious.

this was my original thought, but I'm leaning more towards these other tanks now. I'm def still in the market so checking all options.

Thanks!
