Rated 1 out of 5 by jerry8140 Got the tank filled and noticed that silicone had bubbles in all upright seams. The seams where bad, making the tank a ticking time bomb.
I will be returning it. (120 mile round trip)
I highly suggest taking the tank out of the box and examining the seams very carefully.
After draining the bubbles in the seam silicone were not nearly as visible. Fill the tank out side after purchase and check seams again, before setting up inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mocket broken glass?
Some people have complained that the tank breaks. This is most often caused by the tank not being on a flat surface or the surface becoming un-flat due to the weight of the tank. Glass is very rigid and even a small surface imperfection can cause cracking. They say to put a pad of linoleum tile material to absorb the imperfections that might exist or develope.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Scot Cracked and emptied within two weeks of setup
I purchased this aquarium to replace a 25 year old 29 gallon set up. The space I had only allowed something of similar width and length, plus I wanted to reuse the stand I had, but go bigger and taller. This setup met my needs. The aquarium seemed well built, with even seams and thick glass. The provided filter and heater also fine. The hood was junk, so purchased a different one. I was quite satisfied overall. Then, two weeks after setting it up, my wife heard water "gushing" and we discovered that the back glass panel had cracked from top to bottom diagonally, and half the water had already emptied out. Bailed the remaining water into buckets, got the fish out and mopped up water, pulled up carpet and got the space heater going to dry the carpet. Then, I called Petsmart Customer Care and they told me that the tank had a lifetime warranty and to return it to the store for a replacement. Within an hour I had the new kit and started setting it up. In spite of the problems, I am very satisfied and impressed with the response by Petsmart. The new setup has been in place for a week and no issues so far. I'm hoping that the first tank was just a fluke. But, I now have a water sensor alarm next to the tank and check it regularly for any signs of a crack or leak.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beefstick419 Do not buy this tank!!!!!
I have had this tank for only 8 weeks and I've replaced the filter ( the one that comes with is good for a ten gallon tank) replaced the heater.... the topfin is already dead.....because I replaced the filter the lid no longer fits....and countless other things I've had to do keep my fish happy because this hardware is awful. Build your own set up trust these last couple of reviews this thing is a huge piece of junk!
