That's it in a nut shell Gomer! Pefectionists will never be able to convince/explain why we would spend twice the money on a tank to a person who doesn't have that "eye". I like the car comparison as well because show cars are one of my obsessions.Gomer said:people who tend to get ADA glasswear and custom starfire tanks are not your usual customers. over obscession and perfectionists are two of many common traits these type of people have. That is like telling a car enthusiast that smudges on a paint job, or even more minor, not wiping off all the wax from a wax job, is ok.
I had actually bought a 20gal. All Glass tank before I knew about ADG. After seeing the ADA tanks there, I returned my tank that day, and bought an ADA tank. There's no comparison in my mind. Same thing with the lily pipes. After seeing those I couldn't imagine sticking with the stock green Eheim intakes.
And to the guys at AO, I applaud your efforts to bring high quality products to the market! It seems you are really making an effort to provide what some of us are looking for.
