Hello,

I recently went into my LFS for the first time in over a year and noticed some interesting tanks that I have not seen before, Mr. Aqua rimless tanks. They looked quite nice and the price was good. I ended up buying the Mr Aqua 48 gallon which is equivalent in size to the ADA 90-P. It's a nice tank, glass is clear and the silicone is relatively good. Compared to an ADA tank (which I contemplated buying) I would say the Mr Aqua is ~80% of ADA quality at 1/3 the price.

This will be the start of this tank's journal. I have taken down my Oceanic 37G which was long overdue for a revamp and replaced it with the rimless and I have to say I do love it so far.


Here is a quick pic I snapped with my phone.

How much bowing do you get in that tank. I have a Mr.Aqua 60cm rimless tank and when filled up to 1" from the top there is noticable bowing. I noticed in the shops here the 10mm glass 90cm tanks my Mr.Aqua do not show much bowing, but even the LFS braced the corners on them when used as displays.

Your tank looks great! I just purchased a Mr. Aqua 12-gallon 'long' and can't wait to set it up. I'm glad to hear your happy with yours.

Very nice! I like to see tanks that have the hardscape placed in the center. I was thinking of trying that in my next scape as I like the centered look vs. the usual golden ratio. Looking forward to updates!

Thats a great start out of the gate. I wish I could see these bigger Mr Aqua tanks in person. Nobody carries them locally. I have their 30c and really like it.

Everybody in the lower 48, you suck! Lol! I wish rimless tanks were sold in Alaska. I can get one but it has to be custom made for me for $$$ or shipped for $$$$$$$. Nice tank brother, the scape looks great. Careful the daggers of jealousy are shooting out of my eyes right now.
