    What's Up!

    If it were me I'd probably go with a reefsavvy aquarium. I like the idea of a custom aquarium and getting exactly what you want. I've seen one of their tanks in person and it is awesome. You can go to their website and fill out a inquiry form to get a price estimate. Here is the link: Request a Quote | Reef Savvy

    Also, if you want to see extensive pictures of their aquariums they have a Facebook page. Browse through there and take a look at some of their work. Hope I helped you out! BTW, where are you from?

    I saw the Reef Savvy tanks in person at MACNA and spoke with the owner/builder. I must say the quality of the tank they had was a hair better than my miracles tank. I would go with the Reef Savvy tank.

    The edges of the RS were completely polished where the Miracles were not. They look cloudy in some parts and clear in others. Mostly all cloudy. Also there were a few small bubble places in a couple spots on the seam.

    No they both looked really good as far as I could tell.

    I got my 4x4x2 reef savvy this year and the quality is the best of any tank I have seen in person. His prices are fair, much cheaper then what Miracles quoted me, but be prepared to wait awhile for it to arrive. Mine took 6 months

    I spoke with Felix at MACNA and he is very passionate about his work and his tanks.

    Go with Reef Savvy...

    Love my Miracles tank...but the process of getting it was a total nightmare, I think their quality control is lacking. My first tank was sent out covered in hard water stains that I couldn't remove (the product they sent to "fix" it hazed the glass and made the problem worse), it was so bad they decided to build a new aquarium. They let me sell the old one, which barely made up for all the costs I incurred pickup/moving the tank.

    My new tank is decent, but it has a single tiny bubble in the glass on one of the panes, which is only really visible when the glass is freshly cleaned. One of the seams also has a lot of air bubbles in it, which apparently happens a lot of with big tanks.

    In they end they did a really good job trying to correct the issue, but it was so frustrating and time consuming on my part that I would never choose them again.

    Felix makes awesome tanks, well worth the wait IMO. He built WWC new show tank, it is unbelievable.

    I have personally seen a bunch of tanks that reef savvy has built and the craftsmanship is always dead on.
    From what I have been told his customer service is great. Both tanks are great. From what I read about the Elos tanks people love them. Good luck with your decision.

    i loved my reef savvy tank,the quality was amazing due to financial problems i had to let it go.but my next tank will be built by reefsavvy even if i had the choice of getting an elos and a reefsavvy at the same price i would still go with reef savvy. his customer service is superb and he is very helpful when it comes down to asking him 300 ? about your build lol (sorry felix). goodluck with your decision
