I'm currently looking to upgrade my 63L tank to something bigger.
So far given the limited choices I have where I live and not wanting to spend a huge sum on shipping I've narrowed my choices down to these 3:
The 150L Boyu LYG-800 (LYG- - Aquarium - Products - GUANGDONG BOYU GROUP CO.,LTD.
- $800 (down from $1200)
The 180L Juwel Rio 180 (JUWEL® Aquarium | Rio 180 black
- $880 (down from $1300)
- Includes a few extras (gravel, quick start, fake plants, etc.)
The 180L AquaOne Brilliance 80 (Brilliance 80 Rectangular 180L Aquarium Set (black)
Package from PetStock which includes extras like gravel, heater, plants, water test kit, gravel vac, and bottles of quick start, water conditioner, and stress zyme.
- Approx $1000 - $1100 (cant remember exact price)
Or the 225L AquaOne Briliance 100 (Brilliance 100 Rectangular 225L Aquarium Set (black)
With all the same extras as the 80.
At the moment I'm decided on the Boyu purely because I like the look and shape (I'd prefer a thinner/taller aquarium) of the aquarium a lot more than any of the others. The issue I have is I don't know much about the quality of the Boyu range and I cant seem to find anything about them on the internet. I'm not too sure about the overhead filter system it has but I was planning on either buying a power filter or a canister filter in the near future for it.
The other problem I might have will be buying replacement parts for the Boyu or the Juwel aquariums as no one in my town generally stocks anything aside from AquaOne or a small range of Fluval parts.
So please if anyone has any experience with these aquariums please share it with me.
Thanks in advance
