All-Glass, Perfecto, Oceanic... I don't think they have this requirement.
Any tank would benefit from something with some weight absorbtion under it. Think about it, if a brittle glass tank is sitting on a hard wood stand, if there's any gap or twist to the stand (which there will be, even if there isn't right now, wood warps..) then the tank will have to flex in order to take up the slack. This will lead to, at best, leaky seals and at worst, a cracked tank. I always put a thick towel under my tanks, at the least. A sheet of foam would be even better, as it would allow the tank to settle with the weight of the water into a balanced position.

If you look at their site you will see that they have a schedule of shows they attend where you can pick up a tank, or they will be in a schedule of cities where you can go to pick one up. If, as an example, I went to pick up a tank from a nearby town on the day they were there doing deliveries, they would charge $60 for "delivery", though they don't actually do delivery to a home, you just pick it up there and drive it home yourself.

I believe that if you get one at a show, though, there is no additional charge other than the price of the tank.

Remember that Darwin was mostly right!

I've heard of mix reviews, alot of people say they are great, but then I read of people saying they are terrible. I believe I read about a woman who bought a very large tank, price range of around $3000-$4000 dollars and had muliple problems with them. I also read of another person who received their tank and the tank cracked and they wouldn't honor the warranty even though it was less than 90days, they followed all the restrictions. It sounds like there are quality issue that arise with them everyonce in a while. One thing I don't like is their warranty I believe is only 90days, while the other manufacturers are into the years or lifetime. I would have trouble sleeping at night with a very large tank that has only a 90 day warranty.

Information on "Glass Cages" Aquariums?

I had my LFS special order my 125G. She only marked up the price, to make a small profit and cover shipping, you might try that...

I had her order from all-glass.com

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
