I'd go with this -- much better overall quality. The 4.12 gal is $39.99 with free shipping.

The only one I want is 60$. I'd rather build my own tank for the price.

Azmodan is correct...those turaqua high clarity tanks are phenomenal in quality. Perfect silicone work, beveled edge glass.... they're simply a work of art! IMHO, the quality is on par with a much more expensive ADA tank.

These CAD lighting ZEN tanks are also high clarity starfire glass... they're new to the market but the SCAPE club has been stirring up a lot of buzz with a group buy. You'll start seeing some aquascapes with these tanks too. Price for the 5g is less than $40. Not sure how much shipping will add to that price. They look nice though on the site.

Not from CAD, but I've had the ADA and TruAqua (Aqua top) tanks shipped without problems. Check out the link I just posted...plenty of pics of the shipping box. Anyway, they're usually shipped with insurance from UPS ground. So there's no risk if it's damaged.
