MARINELAND® 60 Gallon Heartland Aquarium Ensemble
We bought this ensemble 6 months ago in July.
It is perfect! The price (on sale), the size, the quality, and most important: the look; all are excellent. The tanks' 24" tall front makes a great aquarium for our Africa Cichlids. What really sold us, other than size, was the stand. My wife and I had shopped all the local tropical fish stores and were very disappointed with look of all the stands. This stand is very nice. It is solid, is well made and looks terrific.
The doors and inside shelf supply plenty of room and the open shelf underneath just sets it all off! Overall: a great deal & a great aquarium. We love it!

Great tank, stand is adequate
I like the taller tank, allows increased viewing area and separation of bottom, mid and top swimmers. The lights that are included are more than adequate and the tank is a great starting spot. Since this purchase I have added a higher end filter (saving for a canister) so circulation propellers, etc., point is, you can easily build upon this purchase without going back to the bank, I mean drawing board.
I have 2 African Cichlids, 1 South America Cichlid, a large Pleco, Peacock Eel (that stays hidden in the substrate) and a black Ghost Knife Fish. I plan to convert to live plants soon.
I'll be adding a hood, new lighting, new filtration and some bubblers soon, this tank will support that.

I bought one of these for my store office and loved it so much I bought one for the house as well. Perfect display for my large community and my customers love it. The one at home houses my barbs and if fish could smile...

Great Tank for a great price!
I got this tank as a birthday gift last month. I didn't go with the recommended filter (I just really don't like hang on back filters) so I upgraded to a large 5-stage canister filter with a built-in UV light and it keeps the water pristine. I currently keep 15 fancy guppies, 1 dwarf gourami, 1 dwarf African frog and a few nerite snails in it with no problems so far.
The stand is very sturdy, but I have it on hardwood flooring. The lights are alright. I have several low-light plants in the tank right now that are flourishing even without adding CO2. But I do plan on upgrading them as soon as I have the money.
For the price, you really could not get a better 60 gallon tank setup (well at least one that hasn't been previously used)
