I remember back when I got my Aqueon 40B from Petco from the dpg sale. August 2013. No issues at all, perfectly clean silicone and no bubbles. Never had an issue with it. I also had an Aqueon 10G,...

Yeah, well, it worries me when every tank you touch feels like you can move the top trim and makes a crunching noise. This can't be good. Someone at the store told me it's because they didn't put...

I don't so much mind the way it looks, but when it's full of bubbles and imperfections in the seams. I don't like having a constant fear of the bubbles causing the seam to become weak and start...

All Glass/Aqueon tanks

So I've been noticing this for awhile now. Every time I look at Aqueon tanks while at the LFS or local big chain pet stores that they are very sloppily done. Silicone globs everywhere, tuns of...

I actually have the DA 36 inch version and it's pretty good. I do wish it had a little bit less white to it, but overall nice light. Especially for the price. That is probably what I will go with

Beamswork for 55 gallon tank

I am looking into using a beamswork led fixture on a 55 gallon tank, or similar tank. I am not sure yet but it will be a 48x12 footprint. Either 55, 50 or 40 Long. Only difference is the height....

Neons do not school very much. They really only do when their scared or first introduced into the tank, which is a bummer because they are one of my favorite fish.

Yeah building my own is not an option, nor is using cinder blocks. I have hardwood floors and they would scratch up the floor very easily.

The tank is 40 gallons 48x12x17.

Short tanks and stands

I'm debating about purchasing a new tank that is rather short on height. It is about 16 inches or 17 inches tall, which IMO always looks rather odd slumping over to look inside the tank. On a basic...

Unfortunately this is not an option due to lack of space. The biggest tank I can go with is a 65 and I'm not trying to go to go that route due to how tall it is.

I feel like a 48x12 footprint tank...

Does anybody have any good tips on how to create depth in a tank that is shorter from back to front like a 55 gallon? I recently got one for 55 dollars and that was too good to pass up.

I would...

I'm still pondering it because there is a LFS that has a Seapora 65 gallon for 129 dollars. Excellent price! Most 65 gallon tanks are anywhere from 165-190 around here.

So have you planted the...
