Default Has anyone bought from TruVu before?

I was thinking of buying a 20 gallon long acrylic tank from them, but I am not sure if they are a reliable company, has anyone ordered from TruVu before? Are good/bad?

thanks in advance

-Nick

They are pretty much the standard brand for acrylic here in the Bay Area and they are fairly good. I don't hear too much compliant.

LeeMar is higher quality tank and tank furniture (stand, canopy etc..) builder then All Glass (maybe they do acrylic?).
They are more the quality that Oceanic was, don't know how good Oceanic is now that they are owned by All Glass however

Oh, Tenechor(sp?) or something like that in Phoenix makes nice Acrylic tanks also, but I think they are pretty pricey.

LeeMar makes Trimless like ADA and the ones I have seen are pretty darn nice and I think those are much cheaper then what a Tenachor goes for.

Buddy got a 65 gallon LeeMar trimless tank (48 x 18 x 1 for like $180, but that was a HUGE buddy price of a promotion product, but if I could get one of those right now, I would be all over it.

Yeah I got about 100-150bucks to spend on an aquarium up to 30 gallons, what is good that I can find for that price? Are there any rimless ones?

You should be able to get an ADA 60p for that.
It is 18 gallons US, but really nice.
I don't think you can get the 75P for under $150, but look into it, it would be better.
