ZeroEdge tanks....

What do you guys think of them?
The water overflows the tank into a trough and into the filtration system.
They look great, but I imagine evaporation would be an issue, as well as critters escaping...LOL

Ive also heard that the algae growing on both sides be become unreal and make it extremely hard to keep clean. Cool tank but not that practical. I saw one of these at MACNA this summer at the ORA booth and they had it loaded with corals and dotty backs and wow was it impressive. It was around 100 gallons id assume and was a circle, makes for a cool shallow reef! I asked them about it and they said that even around 3 or 4 days setup it starts to get a little algae growing on both sides and is hard to keep up with.

Pacificeastaquaculture has one setup in their shop and I'm assuming they're just meticulous about cleaning the glass because that thing stays spotless. They're amazing tanks but a little outta my budget lol.

Do they have sps in it? They are amazingly beautiful, but pretty limiting in terms of coral stocking imo. A couple mp10s on one of these would result in water everywhere I imagine.
