This thread just convinced me not to buy a large ADA tank. Has anyone looked at the GLA tanks?
I have never seen a faulty 90P myself, I think this is the only thread I have seen. I go to AFA, where you would likely buy it from, or it would go through them, and from my experience, they would likely be pretty reasonable about a return. They are a very reasonable store, IMO, again, only bought from the storefront but I don't think they would risk their reputation.
That said, TruAqua makes bigger tanks now and from what I have seen, they are the closest to ADA I have seen. I once argued differently but now that I have seen more, the quality has gone up, but so has the prices. I know many consider it low end but my guess is that they probably use the same manufacturer as ADA or similar. The glass is beautiful, the silicone is great, and unlike some Mr. Aqua tanks, everything lines up perfectly. I don't think Mr. Aqua is a bad brand, I just think they make nice tanks, TruAqua's tanks look really great, and my 60P and other ADA tanks are basically perfect.
As far as GLA, no clue. They made some batches of tanks and most people liked them and then they stopped. Now they seem to have them again. I don't want to knock GLA in any way, but they often "rebrand" existing stuff. I wouldn't be suprised if these were TruAqua, Mr. Aqua, or the like with the GLA name. That's fine because they are a great company and if you have issues, they deal with it, but you may pay more for the same thing.
EDIT...I thought TruAqua was the only one who made this size...http://www.truaqua.com/high-clarity-...um-hca-24.html
GLA now has it, though the didn't in the past...http://greenleafaquariums.com/produc...m-21-4gal.html
Actually cheaper but I didn't look at shipping. Just saying it may be the same tank, I wouldn't be surprised. But, they take care of you better, I am not speaking bad about GLA, I just know they rebrand.
