Calling anyone who has bought a tank from: Glasscages or GreatLakes
So now that I had started looking for a larger tank I have decided that I am very picky. There was one used tank I was very interested in however that deal doesn't seem to be panning out so I have decided to build. I want to stay under a grand on the tank and stand. Here are 2 places I have been looking into. GreatLakes Aquariums and Glass Cages. They have what I am looking for and they are in my price range Great lakes seems to be less expensive but I am not sure because they dont have a build calculator online. We are going for a 100+ cube glass, and may also invest in the star glass if the price is right. So fill up this tread w/ some vendor experiences please! If there is another company that you have used that is in this price range and you loved let me know that too! Thanks Friends! Heidi
I also got my tank from GL, it's 48x24x22 110 gallons. I've had it for over 4 years now and I'm very happy with it. Steve and Brad are easy to talk to and are always willing to help with any problems you might have. They also have a good warranty on their tanks if you buy one of their stands.
So the thing is I want a cube tank, but cut off so its over 25 but under 30 inches deep. Some dimensions I have seen and loved are 36x30x26 or close to that. There is a used one I want but the guy wont budge on price and I don't wanna pay more then 900$ for a used tank when I can just get a new one for about that. So it is mostly the pickiness that is stopping me from saving money on a used tank. SOO if anyone knows anyone who wants to sell they 100g+ cube tank for a reasonable used price let me know. Also if I build I get to put the holes where I want them and pick out my whole set up. A lot of people want you to buy the whole shebang with their tank and I have a very personalized system in mind.
i bought a used glasscages 180 gallon. it is built like a tank. taking it down to the basement was very difficult. i don't think it will ever come back up, at least in one piece. heavier than any other tank i have ever moved, all the edges are doubled with another piece of 3 inch glass. except the vertical corners that is.
Bought from greatlakes. There was a flaw in the glass (not their fault) but they fixed it with no issues. Stored the tank while I was figuring out some personal stuff. I say keep the money local and go with them. Steve and his son are good guys. I don't endorse just anyone. I researched like crazy before I got my tank from them. They are as good as their word and then some.
