Top Fin 75 Gallon Hooded Aquarium
I bought this tank using a gift card I got for Christmas, and it has to be the best tank I've owned so far. We upgraded from a 55 gallon to this tank, and it is super well built and doesn't give any weird tints to the fish like some people have claimed. It's also a great price, I got it for 178 dollars while it was on sale. It has my three turtles, four gouramis, two Australian rainbowfish, and I plan to get a few more fish soon. I would definitely recommend this tank to anyone looking for a budget friendly tank!

This is a good tank. The water appears a little cloudly because the glass is so thick. but it holds water is pretty well made there's some stray glue, but for the price its good. The light works well and the glass looks good. One thing I have to say is DON'T BUY THE STAND! Its hard to put together and is junky. Just buy a storage shelf thats close to width and length and can hold 1500 pounds or build your own. But tank is great.

I wanted to upgrade my gerbils to a bigger tank, was torn between the 55 and the 75 gallon but settled on the 75 gallon. I love this tank, although I am glad I didn't buy it to fill with water because I noticed hairline fractures in one if the corners. My gerbils love the extra room, and it has become a nice center peice of the living room, they are the first thing you see when you walk through the door!

Cheap Bottle Glass
Seemingly, this was the best deal on a 75 gal tank, being it was a third of the average price of similar size tanks.
After setting it up, it quickly became apparent that this tank had a major flaw. The glass adds a muddy greenish tint to the appearance of the contents.
The reason is that to save manufacturing cost, this tank is made of cheaper type glass that is used to make bottles. In order to make colorless glass, impurities such as Iron Oxide have to be removed. That obviously adds to the cost. Iron Oxide is what gives glass that greenish tint.
Seems that no other reviewer has mentioned this, but it is very noticeable to the naked eye, when compared to any normal tank .
It would be a major burden for me to return and replace this tank with a better one, at this time. But it is something I'll consider doing in the future.
