Oceanic 120

Just for yahaas, today I called the best LFS and priced a new Oceanic and AGA 120 gallon. I asked if the Oceanic had a clear top brace. The owner said he believed it would come with a glass center brace, but hadn't seen the specs. since the new changes within Oceanic/AGA.

Here is the interesting part. First the price, Ouch. ~ $520 before tax. Well, its an expensive shop. But he said the new Oceanics like this will feature clear glass (low iron content like Starphire) on the front panel. The AGAs were quoted about 10% lower at $470 and don't come with the clear glass front panel. Both seem a bit overpriced to me, but I was just checking things out and thought I would pass this along. bob

Bob, if it'll make you feel any better, my custom acrylic 120 set me back $740—and this was after getting a 'friend-of-a-friend' discount.

Thanks Bill. I have been wondering what that baby set you back. Shipping up here would probably really add a chunk.

I called a builder in Oregon (who was recomended in a thread somewhere here on TPT) about building the same tank and his quote was $1500—shipping not included.

So the Oceanic is looking more and more like a bargain.

Goes to show, old Henry Ford knew what he was talking about - re: mass production.

You said it.

BTW, in your original post you wrote low lead glass when it should be low iron glass.
