Top Fin 75 Gallon Hooded Aquarium
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.

Great all around
It Is Bigger Than You Might Think Looking At The Pictures. It Has Two Glass Tops With Plastic Sliders On The Back Of The Glass Top So You Can Cut To Fit Your Filtration System. They Do However Give You A Sample Water Conditioner, But It Is Pointless, It Treats Maybe Ten Gallons And The Tank Has A 75 Gallon Capacity.
Total Weight Water And Gravel 700 lbs So If You Live On The Second Floor You Might Want To Get Something Smaller.

It was all that I expected. For the price, it was well worth it. I haven't had to replace anything, like the light. I would buy it again.
