SeaClear 40 Gallon Eclipse 3 Compatible Aquarium
What an awesome aquarium. I love this line of aquariums, they are the best and sleekest design of tanks, with the filtration and lighting all under that hood, it makes for easy maintenance. This tank is ideal for both salt and fresh water. I originaly started mine with as a fresh water, then later as a reef tank.
I love these. PetsMart has the best prices that I've found and some of the best services too.
The main thing to watch with these is the filter and rubber seal the pump hangs on. Always keep them clean, a dirty filter will, of course, disrupt the flow of water, and in the case of a saltwater tank, not cleaning it will cause small amouts of salt to accumulate on the back of the glass.
God is good!

Whats the point
I received the aquarium today only to notice that the acrylic back was cracked one inch down from the top. It is obviously a manufactured defect since the crack emanates from a through hole that connects a reinforcement piece that's there to prevent bowing of the aquarium. I was surprised to see that the connection was with screws (which is what caused the crack) and glue instead of just glue (as I've seen other tanks constructed).
So I cannot recommend this product. Even if yours happens to arrive safely, over time with the pressure of the water, a similar crack will develop with yours.
