I still really don't trust Tetra brand tanks. I've had both Aqueon and Marineland tanks however with no issues at all.

Try the Michigan reefers forums for feedback on great lakes aquarium. I haven't personally used them but I know many there have or have heard of people using them. I have been to their store and looked into buying stuff from them a while back but I became busy and could not find space.

That website can also be a good info dig as well.

I vote that you get what you can afford, what you like and what makes you comfortable.
This is how I select my aquariums, they have to have aesthetics, and be of good condition.

I had one tetra tank and one aqueon tank that leaked, both 10 gallon, both seal tested and returned.
And a 5.5 gallon tetra that tore a seal after 6 months.

Tetra does seem to be the low end.

I have officially begun attempts at breeding!

Well I have a 20 year old AGA (now aqueon) and a aqueon 10g. And then some brand of acrylic for my 125 SW. Was in a pet store bought it at Vi Pets for a steal.

I do plan on buying one of their stands so it's a three year full warranty. I'm very much tempted

I would suggest going on face book and joining the Michigan fish groups and asking them if anyone has had experience with them.

Good advice. Speaking of which... I'm thinking about purchasing the wooden canopy to match my stand but not really sure if it's worth it considering it's 140 dollars.

TBH Blackheart, I have a canopy on my SW tank. While it looks beautiful, and we now have a great system to raise/lower it by, it is a PITA for tank maintenance (well prior to the new ratchets hanging from the ceiling).



Thats what we did two months ago after getting sick of trying to do tank maintenance with a canopy. You can raise it and lower it with one person. Works like a charm.

Wow it's really that much of a pain huh? Yeah not looking really to hang anything. I probably won't go this route anyways since it's so much for the canopy and I've already invested 200 bucks in the tank setup which is really my budget.
