Aquarium type??

Does anyone have an aquarium from Glass Cages? If so are you happy with it? How large is it, I am reading so many mixed reviews about them, I was about to order a custom 240, but now I am not sure. If you don't want to post here or not allowed please PM the info.

Thanks so much

The Glass Cages tanks I have seen are not as good a quality as ADA tanks, nor some of the other custom tanks that are very expensive. But, they are still good looking tanks, which are worth what they cost. Glass Cages likes to deliver their tanks by sending them to a city in the area where you are, and have you drive there to pick them up, which can be a problem if that city in the area where you are is 500 miles away.

Thanks for the info. My only other option is to go with a smaller tank, a MarineLand 180, if you had the option between going with Marineland or custom 200 Glass Cages which would you go with? I need to get this right, only have budget to do this one time, and I don't want to mess it up.

The 180 is 72x24x24 and the 200 was going to be 84x24x24

Thanks

The Marineland tanks I have looked at are also good quality tanks. If it was my decision I would do it by price and convenience for buying and possibly returning. I suspect that would mean the Marineland tank.
