On the other hand, the smaller the tank, the easier, and cheaper, it is to fix when things go wrong.

I've got a pair of 23w CFLs on my 40BR, and If I forget to swap out the DIY CO2, its really easy to tell.

Glass is a hard, brittle material. When you whack it with other hard materials, it breaks. This isn't a manufacturing defect, its a property of the material used.
