I have heard good things about them. LFS here sells some of their tanks and they also sell on Ebay.

The quality of these tanks is excellent. They are thicker glass than most other manufacturers and have much more substantial bracing. They are HEAVY though. I install aquariums in offices, hospitals, ect.... and I will never buy a tank from anyone else other than Glasscages. Call them up and ask for Tom...he'll answer any questions you might have.

I've seen many good comments about these tanks over the past few days Google-ing and Yahoo-ing... The low price and thick glass seems unbeatable... I might go with them.

I've never had a problem with them. They are ,however, adamant about their warranty. If you crack the glass, it's your baby. These tanks don't crack unless they aren't set up properly. If you twist it with an uneven stand, it will likely crack...so will any glass tank. I kinda suspect than anyone who has bad comments about them may have been in this situation. Anyway, I'm going up there Monday (1-22-07) to pick up a 180g tank and bring it back. I'll be coming back I-24 through Chattanooga and down I-75 to Dalton, Ga. I will be happy to pick up a tank for anyone who wants one. If you live anywhere close to me, you can pick it up at my house (Dalton, Ga area) or I can meet you...say within a 50 mile radius of Dalton.

Another question--
Is it really necessary to have a sheet of Styrofoam underneath the tank?
All-Glass, Perfecto, Oceanic... I don't think they have this requirement.

I'm considering adding a 40g tank to my collection...might just have to make a road trip to Tennessee this summer. Where at in TN are they located?
