I settled on flourite because it's the only one I found locally. I will be washing this weekend if it doesn't rain so I can spread it out on a towel to dry. The one bag is more than enough, which is great because that stuff is so expensive!

I have two of these...well, HAD two of them. The two of these sat side by side and looked great. One of them spring a leak Sunday night. It had been up and running for about 6 months. The bottom seam across the back of the tank seems to have split.

As much as I liked the look and size, I don't think I will get another. I am already going to be worried about the other one if I don't replace it. I am considering picking up a 10 or 15 gallon to replace it with and maybe replacing the other one as well.

Sorry to throw a damper on your thread, but I figured it is better to share my experience so you can keep an eye out for trouble with yours.

I fell in love with this type of tank so much though... I plan on upgrading to a rimless 12 gallon long in the future.

Thanks for the heads up! Maybe if I have time I will run a bead of silicone along the bottom edge before I start filling it up.
