There was not all that much talk about them what I gathered from it was that they are all manufactured by the same company and others slap there name on them. I like the fact that I will nit need to buy any timers or moon lights. And the single power cord is a plus.

Picking up the tank tomorrow will decide what I want to do about the stain color. Next step is to figure out how I want to plumb it and order my lights and skimmer.

The tank is here now I need to clean it up and sand down the stand and restain it. Lots of work but with a good reward when all done.

I am excited but I know that I have got to be patent and not just set it up. The stand looks okay but I know that I should sand and stain it here is a photo but the tank is still in the back of the truck I have got to have help to get it out.

I didn't want to put it in this spot but I think I like it. I would need to block out the light from the Windows but this would make the transfer so much less of a pain in the butt.

I cant stand the of a tank being infront of a window for the whole reason you have to block it out. however I am addicted to natural sun light during the day and having to have a window blind closed blows my mind. I dont even have blinds on my windows lol

I agree on the color however its to light. I would darken it to match the furniture or paint it black
