If you can get support and buy a tank locally accompanied by good customer support then fine... But do you really want to support ADA after such a douch move?

|AaronT||I have an ADA 90-P that I've had for 7 years now and it's held up well and was well made from the start. The only thing I don't like about it, or any other rimless tank is that I simply cannot keep fish from jumping out of it to save my life. If I were buying a new one to replace it I would seriously consider an acrylic tank with a euro rim just to mitigate this issue.|

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.

This thread just convinced me not to buy a large ADA tank. Has anyone looked at the GLA tanks?

Finally decided on a 40% partial refund. Can finally move on with the project now.
ADA never got back to me or to the lfs. They have lost me and the lfs as a customer for ever.
Thanks for all the support in this thread!

Things get stranger and stranger.
After talking to my retailer apperantly the first refund offer from the German distributor was ~ 75usd or aprox 10% but the retailer is willing to refund 40% out of his/her own pockt. That is acceptable for me but we are still waiting to hear from ADA Japan.
Just want to get this project going!
It´s not the distributors job to do quality control.

|talontsiawd||I forget if this has been covered by have you ever asked the retailer you purchased it from if they even examined the tank? It's probably too late to bring it up now but I am wondering why they were willing to even ship it to you. They had to either not care at all about their customers, or just didn't pay attention. Just kind of curious because that also seems strange to me.|

|ThatGuyWithTheFish||I'd have to say that you're one of the few out of thousands of tanks that were sold. They're nearly perfect but very occasionally you'll get something like this. Too bad.|

Anything less than 100% or tank replacement would be unacceptable for me.
You paid the premium price, you should get premium service and premium product, no questions asked.
If the edges aren't straight, what else might be wrong you could wonder?
