    The Great Debate: 12gal long AquaMaxx vs TruAqua vs Mr. Aqua

    My next project is a 12gal long planted. I googled a few comparison but didn't get a real good answer on which brand is the best. I have a tough decision on which on to get. Anyone have two or more of these tanks and wanna share their experience? Also, isn't the thinner then glass thickness the clearer?

    Here are my choices:

    1. TruAqua - Glass Thickness: 6mm
    http://www.truaqua.com/high-clarity-...m-hca-12g.html

    2. Mr. Aqua - Glass Thickness: 6mm

    3. AquaMaxx - Glass Thickness: 6mm

    I have both the Mr. Aqua and Truaqua brands in low iron. Both brands are very equal in quality of finish. If I were to say the Truaqua may have a slight edge overall.
    Hope this helps Randy

    I WOULD say the silicone work is more refined and where the glass panes are joined they are more precise less noticeable differences between the height and plane of the corners.
