From reading this a couple times, it seems you like the tank and overall, besides the price i haven't seen any reason to not buy it. My opinion is, if you can afford it, get it and start a journal. Who knows, it could be the best thing since sliced bread.

Yeah they have them at a LFS and I went in to ask some questions and the girl who set it up and was their plant expert seemed disinterested and couldn't wait to get done talking with me (shocking I know). I never got that, I spend a lot of my free time researching and sharing ideas, they get paid to do so but don't want to. I guess at that when it becomes your job it is no longer fun.
Anyway going to check out this guys aquarium tonight if I get it I will start a page for it.
I stated in my OP that the price was not my concern but that's all people commented on as a negative, so I guess that there is nothing else all that bad about it. I guess my main concern is that the only filtration is basically a glorified UG and the plants themselves and it would be really hard to use anything other than a internal filter for it due to its design. The one at the LFS is nice and pretty heavily stocked.
Also if anyone knows where I can get an barely used 85g tank, 48" LED light, Stand, enough fish/plants/gravel for that sized tank for under $750 I am all ears.
Funny you ask, I am getting it next weekend and will be taking pictures/posting it on here if I can figure it out. Unfortunately for me it was a 65g and not a 85g but he is knocking down the price a bit because of it. I'll let you know how it goes.
For a comparable model there is the ADA Waterfall tanks $350-$500. (cooler too I think, as they are strictly glass and easier to customize)
Yeah never saw those but they are pretty cool. However not to much room for fish in those, only about 7 inches of water and thats the deeper model that has less steps. This holds 65 gallons of water. Also don't like the look of the plants just floating in space like the pictures I could find.
Well I got it today, and spent the entire day setting it up. I am happy with it so far. We will see how it goes as far as plants. The ones he had in there were in pretty sorry shape but then again it seemed like he did not know what he was doing with them and didn't care to learn, probably part of the reason he sold it. I took some pics of the set up and I will post them shortly.
