if you were going to buy a tank in the four to six foot range 24” high and deep, what brands would you be looking at? I need a stand with leveling feet for my somewhat uneven vinyl planing over a bumpy slab and so T slot stands are a plus. I’d like a bean animal overflow and starphire glass. Black armored seams and a starboard/pvc bottom are a big plus.

Shoot away!

Glass cages gets a mixed review. If you want a high level of fit and finish, they are probably not for you. But if you want a custom tank and you are willing to have a few blemishes, I have heard that they are just fine.

Thanks for the mention @PatW. truly appreciated.

Since the transition in October of 2019, mix reviews have been slim to none. We have done so much by humbly listening to everyone and adjusting the company to serve better. product a better product and innovate some new things to the industry. We are having a blast. Below is a summary of the transition.

During October of 2019 there was a major transformation at Glass Cages.

Glass Cages Transformation:
• Leadership Change
• Quality Assurance with QA Check Points
• Digital Production Tracking
• Improved Customer Service
• CAD drawing and approval processes
• Major Investments in Fabrication Equipment
• Polished Edges are now standard on all builds

We are not stopping with these improvements. Please see our reviews after October 2019 on Facebook, instagram, google and Reef2Reef. We have asked our new customers to share the truth. Knowing the truth allows us to reinforce the good and correct our challenges.

I am so excited and proud of our Glass Cages Team. We look forward to hearing from you about how we can serve you better now and in the future.

After buying a Waterbox from a fellow reefer on here, I would never buy anything with the name Waterbox again.
R2R member had a brand new tank 105.4 in the crate without a plumbing kit and they refused to sell me a plumbing kit (which if you didn’t know are specific to this brand of aquarium) , I am kinda upset that I bought my first tank from them.
No reason to wonder why bulk reef supply doesn’t sell them.

Replace the bulkheads with the next size down and fill in the gap with silicone
