Deep Blue vs Aqueon tank

Hi, am looking to buy a 55g for planted FW, is it worth paying up for the Deep Blue tank? It's $170 for Deep Blue vs $90 for All Glass/Aqueon at Petland Discounts in NYC... I don't mind paying up for a stronger tank if it's really worth it! Thanks!

I've used Aqueon and Marineland. My 55G is currently a Marineland and I would think it is pretty strong. I have quite a bit of river rock in it. I would say go woth the Aqueon and use the money you save on more fish stuff.

I have both tanks and see no noticeable difference between the brands. An aqueon should be just fine, I agree save your money for something fishy.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Agreed. I've owned both (and just about every other brand) and would just buy whatever one was cheaper.

I prefer Aqueon. Check the silicone in the corners, it usually is a bit neater. Less expensive is not cheaper in this case.
