Rated 5 out of 5 by SafariJoe The second time was a charm
Got this set up April 15th 2015. The first tank ended up cracking, a circular crack on the edge of the glass. I was very upset since I had just put it all together and had added the fish. Let me start by saying I purchased the 65 gallon combo on line and then picked it up at the store. Dougles in the small pets department was very helpful. When The tank cracked he was the first person I spoke to. He assured me that he would replace the tank unless the damage was caused by negligence. I am happy to report that upon talking to the store mngr Albert, I was told to bring the tank back for a replacement. I have now set up my new tank and am very pleased to report it is beautiful. This tank like all of its kind is amazing. The height to width ratio is perfect. If you want to show your fish to the best of your ability and you also want them to have plenty of room to grow. This is the tank for that. Small foot print and the hight of this tank make it amzing for all types of fish, I highly recomend buying this tank and injoying the large flat screen TV of life....

Rated 5 out of 5 by martinman52 Perfect size and color for our needs. The aquarium itself is very well made, the light I don't believe would sustain live plants, but I use artificial plants anyway and it illuminates the aquarium nicely. The stand is very sturdy and well made. My cascade 1000 barely fits in the stand, I'm sure the 500 would fit just fine. I equipped this tank with an undergravel filter, cascade 1000, and fluval 70, the power filters had to throttled down a bit. This ensemble is a little pricier than others, but it's one of the nicest set-ups I've had ..... and I've had many over the past 40 years. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for this aquarium, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shawn1 I bought this 65 gallon fish tank and stand on 04/22/15, stand is cheap quality and design is wrong, not enough space to place sun sun canister or sump filter so I'm going to return it.

by Joeq Really nice tank
I've had this tank for about two months now. Everything has been going great with it, I'm very happy with my purchase. It looks great in my TV room, the stand goes well with my other furniture. I paired it with an API Filstar XP-M filter and that has been a very good combo. The stand holds the filter and my air pump easily and has room to spare. I really like the shape of this 65 gallon, it's large but doesn't have a huge footprint. I didn't want a super wide aquarium, this one has extra height that gets you more gallons. About the only downfall is it's sort of deep when you're moving plants or rocks, you may get a bit wet. It really doesn't bother me at all, a small step stool helps a bunch. If you're looking to step up to a bigger aquarium you should look closely at this one.
