Starfire glass

Any info on this type? At a local aquarium store the owner had some tanks for sale but they are pricey compared to name brands. The tanks look awesome as he had some set up already with Discus in one 300gal, he builds custom tanks and I found his knowledge and quality is very good.

Starphire is about as clear as acrylic. It's worth the extra couple hundred to at least get the front pane low iron. View the difference here-

Your welcome. Just a FYI, the company I got that picture from (Glass Cages), makes some pretty affordable tanks.

Mr. Aqua has some affordable options using the low-iron glass. Think they only go up to 65gal though. I have a small rimless and the build quality is top notch considering the price. Ada makes some killer rimless as well..
