I did see one in a store that carried ADA tanks as well. There is little difference. They had non bow front tanks as well. I have been waiting to see if they get a shipment in. I wanted to get a 60P size tank but the shipment keeps getting delayed. Price wise its great. I dont have one so I can not tell you how they hold up. If it didnt have a sticker saying Mr. Aqua I would have thought it was an ADA tank.
I agree! I've been in taiwan for the past two months and been to various fish stores. They have so many rimless tanks of different sizes for such cheap prices. Unfortunately for me, I am not bringing a tank back this year.You guys would probably have a shopping spree if you saw how much rimless ADA style fish tanks go for in Taiwan.
The quality is the same or maybe better than the ADA tanks also.
The rimless tanks would cost twice as much. keep in mind that if they dont have a plastic rim the edge of the glass needs to be polished. That takes time and man power to do. That increases the cost of the tank. On the tanks with the plastic molding the silicone is thick so they can get a good seal. More silicone more area to make sure the seal is good.I can understand that stores have problems with breakage when the tanks don't have plastic rims on them, but I don't see why using simple, cheap styrofoam packing wouldn't solve those problems. The tanks would cost more than rimmed tanks, but they shouldn't cost twice as much. So, I don't understand why we have so few choices on rimless tanks. And, the same goes for the messy silicone jobs on typical tanks in LFS - just so unnecessary.
