That being said, their tanks really are pieces of art and look amazing.. for the most part.
That one made me cringe, too. Who cares that it won't break, the fish are going to be terrified. I get mad when people tap the glass at the LFS
... Also, they didn't seem all that confident that it wouldn't breaking the first place. For all they say about respecting the ocean and not taking corals to keep reefs sustainable, they don't seem to respect the lives of the fish they are dumping into these tanks. They seem to be perpetuating the idea of aquariums as decoration vs fish as pets.
