I'd like to be a part of this! I have had my 18" DBP for a few months, but am about to tear it down and re-build.

Had one for a while, did they change dimensions? Mine was sold and package said 2.3g 5way betta 18x5x7. No ruler to measure though but it isn't the same height as width

I think it's just a small difference in measurements. It really is just about 2.8 gallons. The volume formula shows us that lol.

It really is the same tank though.

Bought one of these from my LFS, on the way home the inner glass included shifted and completely cracked the end pane. It was secured fine just a normal shift from the 5 minute drive. Anyone else have this happen? DBP just told me tough luck so I am unsure if I should buy another. Shame I love this shape for shrimp.

As with any glass, I'd say don't let objects with points bang into a pane with any force.

I've heard of one being shattered in shipping, but DBP replaced it.

I'd say just remove the stuff from the inside while transporting.

I've got a few different Deep Blue Professional tanks but here are <a href="http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/showthread.php?t=172053">a couple</a>:







These 3gal tanks are my all-time favorite, I think.

One of my many DBP 10gal tanks:

Yeah it's a bit of a pain to need to cut open the plastic straps and disassemble it in store to drive down the road. The inner contents were wrapped in bubble wrap but I didn't notice until inspection it was very ineffective as it was a single layer or so and did nothing to hide the corners. I'm unsure why they do not just place them inside some cardboard. I guess now I know, really put a damper on my excitement though.

I guess I would be lucky number 7! I haven't updated my tank journal in a while but the link is in my sig. The tank is currently a hot mess with hair algae everywhere there isn't duckweed. I am hoping to get some time to rehab it in April.

Yeah, really sorry to hear about what happened with your tank water-kitties. Mine was shipped from AllPet, and the box looked like he11 after UPS got through with it. I've got a pic of it for my future build thread. But the tank is in perfect condition, and I didn't have any plastic straps on mine.
