no its not available in low iron but their website is rather confusing about it. i always thought that low iron is same as high clarity. and then there is of course starphire glass which is used by ada so it would be good to know how they compare

Beginning of March we are getting in our first versions of a few sized tanks in Low Iron. The MA-830 (48g) is coming in low iron but it will be renamed to MA-835LI (53g) and it is 2" taller than the original MA-830. Also we are getting in low iron versions of the MA-821 and MA-730 (12 gallon long).

If you put them side to side and look down the glass you can tell. On normal glass you will see a green tint, the sides of the glass will look dark. On Low Iron glass it is pretty much completely clear, no tint, just looks like.....glass. Haha. It looks great.

Will there be price increase on the new 53g tank or will be the same like the old one? Also looks like with 2" taller tank i can now justify buying my new ati sunpower 4x39w light.
Thanks

Since it is larger and in low iron, yes there will be an increase in cost. Low iron always increases the cost.

John, are they still making the 48g in regular glass? I ask because I placed an order yesterday through Marine Depot and am being told it's on backorder through 4/16. I want to make sure I'm not waiting on a discontinued item and need to switch this to the 53.

Yeah we are still making it. It's just we are out right now and so our next shipment comes in around the 17th. That's why it is back ordered. I have your order though so it will go out as soon as it comes in
