Rated 4 out of 5 by herpvt Great tank, decent stand, poor lighting
I am very satisfied with this tank and picked it up for $199 during a petsmart black Friday sale a little over year ago. For the sale price I bought it at this is a 6-star bargain, but it usually retails for $349 and is often on sale for $249. At those prices there are some issues.
1st, the lighting is terrible. It's OK if you are not keeping live plants, but if you have any interest in live plants then upgrade the lighting. I picked up soe waterproof LED lights on Amazon for ~$30 and the plants went wild. Stock lighting in aquarium combo deals is always poor, just be aware of this.
2nd, depending on how much you stock the tank the filter will likely be insufficient. You can get canister filters online for $50 these days, and I suggest you do so.
I knew these would be shortcomings when I bought the tank. The tank and stand are solid. If you plan on having live plants or stocking close to capacity for the size of the tank just understand you will need to upgrade the filter and lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robin621 Awesome deal!
Have had this for a year, it's beautiful, I get lots of compliments, downside is I need a stool to access the tank, it's really tall and I must wear tank top when ready to clean it cause I'm up to my armpits cause its 24 inches tall. It also has 2 separate hoods because of the length which surprised me but really not a problem, you can take one away and still have some light. Definately worth it, great storage. I caught it on sale for $220 but would pay full price. The cabinet occasionally gets wet but there is no warping that I can see. It's 12 inches deep, which seems to be fine for my fish. It's like having a moving picture, a real showpiece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeezEveryNameIsTaken Nice combo, good price
I bought this tank & stand in early 2015 and it's been set up now for 8 months without any leaking. Like others, my canister wouldn't fit inside the cabinet without modification, so I decided to place it on the floor next to the cabinet (makes it easier to access for cleaning). Other than that I have no complaints about this tank.
