He has moved on from ADG/ADA. He did say he would answer any ADA related questions (I believe) but doesn't work for anything related to this anymore.

Sorry to hijack the thread but if the quality of the ADA tanks is dropping this fast it's time to at least take a look at other companies.

You could get burnt out as just a hobbyist would be even easier to get burnt out doing it professionally. Or could be just a better oppty came along

The next best mass produced would probably be ELOS imho. They still have their tanks handmade in Italy using a proprietary adhesive blend. They also have double pane glass bottom for seismic activity on the larger tanks. The purist tanks are a littler cheaper than the overflow models. They come in some unique sizes. If I recall the 120 95g is $1600 or $1700 (plus shipping). They do come stock with black silicone. They might do clear silicon for a custom job but I don't know 100% about that. They recently switched their USA distributor to:

They haven't added all tank sizes yet.

The expensive part of ordering a custom "ADA" jar from a local glass fabricator is the beveled edges I think. The beveling requires lots of work and a BIG sanding machines. Thick low iron glass + beveling + extra delicate and time consuming silicone work = expensive. At least it is here in Sweden.

On topic:

ADA Germany is apperantly back from vacation and my mail will go them through my local ADA dealer. Now I just hope they and ADA Japan can read english good enough, added lots of pictures just in case. :/

Have you guys heard the news? ADA will not be affiliated with ADG anymore... Rumor said it has something to do because Frank left.

That's very interesting. Something to do with marketing.

Someone else will setup and take ADG's place as an ADA distributor.
