It doesn't have to make sense to a customer, just the company trying to get out of paying for their mistake.

If it comes to involving ADA, maybe pictures without the non ADA stand would be a good idea, even if its not in used condition.

Personally I think your fine either way. A stand is not a factor in workmanship. I don't know the exact language they use in the warranty but it would be too ridiculous.

Man I was going to say the same thing when I first open this thread. Forget the angel of the tank... That silicon job is far below standard for an ADA tank.

Matsnork, looking at that silicone job that slowly disappear down the line is an eye sore. Mine doesn't even have that, I don't think even a normal tank has that.

I sent a quick email to ADA's english department, the sticker bubble is formed by "external factor" is *according to them* completely normal. I'm thinking the worldwide shipping and storage caused this effect, we both live pretty far away from them.

Try sending them the pictures of the silicone and misshapen sides, I'm certain ADA will send someone to Mr.Amano's office right away. Like an HC Cuba uproot problem appearing in their display tank, they won't let it slide!

I hope ADA sees this thread and how badly they are starting to slack.

Let's start a revolution and boycott for the old ADA back.

This. I received a 60P from ADG today. Silicone work on the corners was lazily trimmed and I need to cut a few pieces. What happened to the top-of-the-line goodness that ADA used to be known for with their tanks? I have a Mini M that's flawless and even my AquaTop cube had less crud in the corners than my 60P does.

Freph, sorry to hear that and this is very discouraging. Can you share any pictures?

I already trimmed it to remove the excess. Basically just slivers of silicone creeping up from the corners. Nothing that couldn't be fixed, but still...to pay for an item from a company that's supposed to be known for the quality and having nothing interfere with the aquascape, I find it a bit annoying to have to trim silicone work myself that should be nearly flawless from the factory.

I recently ordered my first ADA tank (60-p), and I too, was not as impressed as I hoped to be with the quality of work. The clarity is great and at least the corners are square (I have seen reports on issues with that too lately on ADA tanks). But the silicone work on the corners was far below the quality I expected.

The silicone work on the corners really seemed to be no better than some of the cheaper ADA knock-offs available now.

That's not a good thing to hear. I have found more than a few people who say Aquatop is on par with ADA and have always thought it was an overstatement as I used to go to AFA on a very regular basis and my LFS carries Aquatop. I guess I may have been off base with my comments if ADA's quality control is slipping because the ADA tank I see over the years are not what some people have been describing. I would expect nothing but a flawless tank from ADA because that is all I have seen from them over the last 5 years or so of going to AFA and a few local hobbyist's homes.
