2 week delay folks...

Long story short, be sure that you never perform a leak test with the tank being on the ground. Always make sure that bulkheads are not sticking out further than the tank and if you're going to perform a leak test, make sure you have it on the stand first...

That said, Red Sea has the best customer service I have ever seen in a company hands down... Anyone that says otherwise is full of it. I cannot thank them enough for all their help.

How did this work out? It was post delivery, so would not be covered by carrier insurance.

Did they just eat it and cover the cost of a replacement tank?

Sent me a new tank, t-shirt, water bottle, 200gal salt bag, and about $500 in additives for free out of a gesture of good will. Amazing experience. Took 5 days from ticket filed to receive the replacement.

That's some generous customer service!
The new red sea lineup with reinforced stand/tank looks pretty great.

It's an amazingly beautiful tank. The fine details shine. The prism ford blue you see from the top is just stunning. My fish are truly at peace now. There's no aggression and all of my tangs have become friends schooling and eating in join. This size tank is a joy for me, but the fish are so much happier and that's the real satisfaction of all this experience. I am so glad I went with as big as I could.

Sounds like so far even with your issues it's been a great experience... I order my 170 from Fish Tanks Direct and it was a great experience, so I'll probably be ordering my S-1000 (when G2 comes out) from them as well... I'm in Houston so shipping is a breeze, and yes, saving the tax is a huge help...

Tank is up and beginning to cycle now. Took about 3 weeks to get a shop out but they only charged me $90 to get from the garage onto my stand in the living room so fantastic deal. Have had a delay here and there, including finding out my first kid is on the way! But now she's up!

I'm currently debating what is the best way to spread out my (3) Neptune Sky lights? If I put 1 directly in the middle of the tank its 41.35" for exact middle. For the other two lights, should I simply divide 41.35"/2 and place at 20.675" from each of the sides?
