Aqueon, the world's largest manufacturer of quality glass aquariums, hoods, stands and cages.
For any aquarium setting Aqueon Aquarium puts the finest construction features and quality craftsmanship in every tank and accessory we produce. This year we have expanded our product line to include a variety of new and innovative designs including the award winning Corner and Bow Front curved glass aquariums.
2.5 gallons though 210 gallons. A wide range of sizes are available.
I have a 72 gallon bowfront. It is awesome. That is all. The only think I worry about is putting a 600 lb aquarium on top of the 40 lb pine stand that came with it. It's a beautiful stand and all but I hope I don't come home to a wet apartment someday.
"move over oceanic, there's a new tank in the house"
i had 1 oceanic and while it was unique in the sense that the brace was glass i find that the plastic tht aqueon uses to hold better and in the case the silicone breaks you have extra (not the best) support from the plastic to give you more time to prepare.
95% of the tanks in my house are of aqueon. i will soon be making the switch over to all aqueon tank.cant speak much for their other products as of yet but the tank so far has been the best of the best in my experience.
All of my tanks are all glass aquariums. I have had a 45 gallon tall running for 12 years. Never leaked a drop. I will say that the cheaper particle board stands are not the way to go as accidents happen and equipment fails and these stands will not tolerate any water at all. But their heavier pine stands are incredible as one has never failed me.I have 10 of them over 55 gallons and 30+ 20 gallon tanks only ever had 1 problem and it was not the manufacturers fault. I cracked it.
"they dont back up their products like said before"
do not waste your money
I recently bought 2 all glass (Now Aqueon)24" strip lights with in a couple months one doesnt work and less than a year later the other one burns out brand new bulbs! they are the kind that are automatic start and I wouldn't reccomend anyone waste their money on them. When i contacted them they wouldnt even talk to me cuz i didnt have a receipt. All I wanted was lights that work and they can't provide that.
Less then 1 1/2 years ago I bought a 180 gallon set-up with "furnature" quality stand and canopy, te stand and canopy are falling apart (would be glad to e-mail pictures to anyone who would like to see them) the tank's overflows have the sealent coming off. All they can say is it's out of warrenty and refuse to do anything about it, and I'm the proud owner of a $3,ooo set-up that isn't worth #$@%
less than 3 months after buying it, leak. Not a tiny little spray leak either... 60 gallons in 20 minutes drained... It's not even OLD! I just bought it. I'll have to see how well they take-care of me now that my tank is ruined. What are they going to replace? My 3d background which is siliconed on there? My opinion (which will never be very high of them again) is tipping between "fine" and "pile of $***" depending on how well they honour their warranty.
edit: it's a "pile of $***". They can't do anything for me they say. I say: "You can't send a check in the mail for the cost of my ruined background and rocks if I send you a reciept for it?"
It's not my fault I need to throw this stuff out. I didn't ship out a defective product. But I have to pay for damages because I was "stupid" enough to buy there unmarked, defective product. Give me a BREAK.
EDIT: second one cracked... The stand is good, just poor quality tank
I have the 75E. The "E" stands for "economy." I have had no problems, but the sealing was not as neat as I would have expected and have seen on other AGA tanks.
Some AGA tanks, like the 75E, have a tempered bottom. It's a lot lighter than the 75 with the regular annealed glass bottom BUT you can't drill it. Tempered glass is a lot stronger than annealed glass of the same thickness against blunt trauma (and therefore can sustain more weight if used as a bottom), but if poked hard enough with a sharp instrument will shatter into a million pieces. Annealed glass would crack and leak but not fail like that. There is such a thing as "delayed catastrophic failure" of tempered glass from some latent flaw or previous sharp trauma which I believe is what a previous commentator (Trammel) suffered.
I've had two AGA tanks for approximately three years now. So far I haven't had one leak and not one crack. I hope they'll continue this way for many years to come. Planning on getting a third AGA tank.
