Mr. Aqua Tank

I dont understand any website that I have come across that sells the 48G Mr. Aqua Aquarium.
Mr.Aqua's website does not signify "low iron" on the 48g but in its description states "we use high clarity glass" but for there other aquariums like the cubes they state (low Iron) and show a picture of the whitish colored glass. Here is the link http://mraqua.net/products/frameless-aquariums/

Anyone know if they are all Low Iron / High Clarity?
This is making me want acrylic even more!

As far as I know high clarity in glass is acheived by a low iron content, so it's basically the same thing. I would never go with acrylic unless I had to because I've heard it accumulates scratches and becomes VERY unsightly after a while...

The lower the iron content of glass, the higher its quality, if that is what you're asking.

The 48g Mr. Aqua is regular glass. They only offer the 7.5g and 25g in low iron glass.

My 12g long glass has that greenish color on the edge of the glass. Unlike all ADA tanks has that white - blue-ish color on the edge of the glass.

My 12 long looks crystal clear with water in it...no worries!

I have a 13.3 and 12 long Mr. Aqua and I LOVE them. They're beautifully made. I'd get a larger size too if I could afford it!

Acrylic scratches waaaaay too easily
