I picked yes, as the fish barn will get an upstate once I get a bigger mini barn. Going to need a very large and shallow tank for what I have planned.

I am a fan of glass cages. In all the years, I have never had an issue with them. They have changed management and qc is a ton better overall (although, every single past tank they built for me was perfect)

Plus they are local to me, so when the time comes, I can go bug @Joe Glass Cages all I want. Well, he may throw me into the pond or sick the attack geese on me, but it’s all good.
Thanks so much for the mention @Eagle_Steve! You got it. We have all kinds of extras here!

Im actually in the market for two.....a Waterbox for the office, and a massive Glasscages build for the living room. The only tank I have currently (cycling now actually) is a 75 cube in the bedroom, and I am thinking WB130.4 in office (maybe one step smaller, just really want to run it as a harem) and a 475 GC tank in the living room. A man has got to have hobbies! Lol
sounds Radical. thanks so much for the mention and support.

Well as of now I have an old oceanic tech 120g. If I had to buy a similar sized tank brand new I’d go with the mode infinity 135g.

however, in the future I want a tank that is at least 220g. Possibly more. And when that time comes I’ll be going with Glass cages. I think I’ll probably end up with a 7ftx30 or 36x 20

I recently ordered my dream tank from @Joe Glass Cages and I'm extremely happy with the process. Joe walked me through the build and probably took more time than he should have to make sure every T was crossed and I dotted. He made this purchase "happen" for me when I thought it wasn't going to.
Thanks for the support @Kpdiver. We love this! Here to serve. Thanks again. Can't wait for you to get your tank!

Of course, you guys freaking rock! I’m going to run with the 120g I have for a while. But when the time comes I’m giving you a call!

Just put in an order with Glasscages for my new tank. The communication and design process was quick and easy. Joe made sure he had every detail needed to build the tank I wanted. Can't wait to get it and then build thread to follow...
@DH78, thanks for the mention. We love what we do. Cant wait for you to get your tank. Thanks again.

Glasscages out of Tennessee is making some awesome tanks at a very good price. I have 2 of their tanks a 120 DT, a 95 gallon frag tank and currently designing a 300+ gallon dream tank.
Thanks so much @IamChrismWard! 300 gallon! Sounds like a ton of fun Chris. Thanks for the support.

I voted no... because I’m currently setting up aforementioned upgrade
1) I went with a CADE. What sold me over competing all-in-one tanks was the side access for filter sock maintenance, the power/cord management system, the quality, dimensions and price.


2) It is the CADE PR1800, and is a (significant) upgrade from my AquaOne MiniReef 120, whose stand is ready to give out any day now. It’ll be a peaceful mixed reef, LPS/soft coral dominant. A permanent home for my small blue tang Percy. We have invested in quality support systems, after the minireef being an ultra low tech/entirely manually maintained tank. It wasn’t stable and the upkeep became unrealistic. Looking forward to a more stable and lower maintenance reef :)

My last tank was 90 cube from glasscages and I liked the quality of that tank and didn't have any issues and would buy from them again. My next tank I'm getting in the fall will be from Planet Aquarium. I have heard good things about them and they will be within driving distance. I think I finally decided on a 150.

Hello hello is there anything you wish was done better on your tanks? Basically could you give a product review and dealing with them? Any issues with leaks or seams issues?
