    Best Aquarium Brand?

    Hello all. Looking to buy a new aquarium soon, and thought I would solicit some opinions on what brands you guys and gals like to buy.

    I'm talking standard (not rimless) glass tanks.

    I have a stand that is 14" x 38".....so I was thinking something like a 30 gallon.

    For height I want it to be taller than 12", and 18" max.

    I would like to grow some ground cover plants in it......so maybe a height of 16" would be good.

    Marineland has one that is 36 L x 13 W x 16 H.

    I currently have two rimless aquariums running.......and i'm tired of the constant water replacement and fish jumping out (which does not happen too often.......but I do not like it wen it dos). Plus......last earthquake dumped half a gallon of water on the floor.

    So again.....standard, black-rimmed aquarium

    Top Fin? Marineland?

    I know The Reef in Anaheim works with a company I have never heard of.

    Your opinions are appreciated.

    I can't speak to their quality, but the PetCo Dollar a Gallon sale is currently on.

    Plus......last tank I bought at Petsmart leaked in four months.

    Most non chain stores will usually sell Visio tanks, good quality and usually the only way to get non standard tanks.

    Fluval Tank

    Hi there,
    Your stand would hold a Fluval flex 32 gallon. Just got one at CK Fish in West Covina. Very nice lighting and a full cover..

    Have had it for three weeks still waiting for it to finish cycling..

    Fujimoto could make you a custom tank of your desire.
