Yes, $100 is extremely low and reasonable price. I got mine for Christmas and it was on sale for $70! There is nothing wrong with the modern silver borders to cover the seams. It is a wonderful tank. One flaw, a mini heater can not be added into the main tank. The lid does not have a routing hole for the wire, so a mini heater has to be put inside the outlow chamber of the filter in order for the wire to go thru the lid's open pathway.
Also, if someone wants to use a different light strip, the lid will have to go in order to snap on a different light strip on the glass.
