Rimless tank?

Hi guys, newbie here but former member. Just coming back to the hobby and I need an advice. I would like to go rimless this time but ADA tanks are just expensive for me. I would like to know what you think of my chosen rimless tank from this website, it's 50g 36x18x16

Or can you recommend a store that I can get a rimless tank? thanks

Glascages get mixed reviews. Maybe check out Mr. Aqua for nice, lesser expensive alternative.

There's also Green Leaf Aquariums.

One other option I have seen is Deep Blue. My LFS has a 30g rimless cube that's pretty sweet. I think the price was around $250 with a stand. The cardboard box that an ADA tank comes in probably costs that much.

Do add the cost of shipping to the cost of the tank. Many a times you can save $100-$200 if you buy from a big on-line retailer. For larger tanks, shipping is still a pain.
