I've seen some of the aquariums they've built over at Reef Central and they're out of this world in terms of quality and ingenuity (ie. they can make the bottom of the aquarium out of PVC to allow for easy drilling and use acrylic to Euro-brace their tanks for extra strength). However, this comes at a very high price.

Tex Guy decided on a 24" X 24" X 20H" He's getting star glass on 3 sides!! He's going all the way!! It'll be the nicest tank we have. It'll be somewhere less than 60gal. 24"H is 60 gal. He's already ordered a TEK light and a canister filter. He was gonna do a rack of 10gs but decided on this. I think he's gonna go high tech but not sure he has decided. I've already begun collecting some plants for him. So exciting!!!


Anyway.... if you are looking for an all glass rimless tank give them a call. They say on their site they won't make them in glass but it depends on your location. You have to call or email and find out. We will be meeting their truck Dec 14 in a parking lot somewhere in Dallas. (Sounds like a story I once read on this forum!!) You can choose regular glass or star glass, clear or black silicone. How nice!

Hi there. Sounds very exciting. If I go to fishtank.com I get the following message:

"
Fishtank.com is for sale for $1,000,000,000.00 USD FIRM.

Yes, you read that right, ONE BILLION BUCKS.

If you can't afford it you're probably not working hard enough. Get back to us after you've made something of yourself.

If you do have fat stacks of unused cash lying around, please email [email protected] for disposal assistance."

We traveled the obligatory hour each way (we live in TX, enough said...) and met the truck. We spotted our beauty in the back of the truck. With wide-eyed appreciation, we watched as they took it out, and loaded it in the back of my Nitro (love that car!!). I quickly inspected the glass to see how different the starfire glass was from the plain back glass. I could only imagine what it would look like with water and plants! We were happy!...

As we drove away from the truck I looked back a the tank. The top right corner appeared to be off! Surely it was a apparition! I must be seeing things!!! Bill pulled of the road and we both got out. Somehow in it's drying/curing time the top right corner had been pushed in which pushed the bottom left corner out at least an eight of an inch! Needless to say we turned around, they loaded it back on the truck and we returned home thankless... er.... tankless. We also found out that Fishtankshop.com IS somehow Glasscages.com So I will call this am. and we will do the whole thing all over again. Life remains interesting!

EDIT: After calling Glasscages I found out that they make the tanks for Fishtankshop.com, but they are different companies. Maybe that's why their customer service was better.

Oh, no! Makes one wonder how they can deliver a tank without inspecting that at least all sides are together! Good luck there folks, I hope it all works out ok.

I had a feeling they would be associated going by their similar warranties, I know Glasscages uses a different name when dealing on eBay as well.

Hopefully they'll do it right this time.
