Comments: Tank was shipped extremely well packed, as Marine Depot is known for which was great. The tank itself is very well built. You can tell there was a great attention to detail. All panes are perfectly alined and the silicone adherent is extremely accurate and straight. Very clean look. Not a chunky wide pile like many other tanks to. Love the rimless design of it. And the glass, while not low-iron, is still very clear and free of impurities visually. All around seems very well and built and I'm very satisfied. Going to make one awesome reef tank.
Best part of all, the dimensions are completely badass looking.
A Great Re-Beginning

Comments: I'm a re-beginner at aquariums, but have been keeping up with the hobby through you tube. this tank is everything the you-tubers say it is! Amazingly long and looks much bigger than 12 gallons. I didn't think I was ready to spring into a 30 or 40 gallon again,
so went with this.
The only thing I would change is to make it a little taller - the heater needs to be horizontal instead of vertical, so is harder to hide and the in tank filter could stand a few extra inches of space over the top. Otherwise, it is beautiful. The long size allows for so much more aquascaping with plants and driftwood. It just looks beautiful!
And BTW, Marine depot is fantastically quick in delivering anything I order. I found two treasures this month - the tank and the Depot!
12 Gallon Bookshelf

Comments: The length of this tank is great, nice edges, one is a bit off, but not enough to complain about. Item was packed very well. Tested with a full tank of water overnight, Mr. Aqua did not leak, so I'm very happy with this item. Finding a lid for the tank is a different story. I did find the clips to hold the lid in place, but the lid itself I'll have to have one made.
best in value by far, A+

Comments: Seller rating: I ordered this tank because of a sale. The first arrived damaged. Ups didn't help at all. Marine depot apologized for the inconvenience and sent a free replacement that same day. Top tier customer service!!! I will forever buy exclusively from here unless they don't carry the item I'm wanting.
Aquarium: Super quality. Almost as clear glass as low iron, even though it's not marketed as such. Glass panel alignment, low profile seams and overall presentation rival ADA, GLA, aquatop etc. Best rimless low iron tanks are GLA and aquatop, followed by ADA and Mr aqua. ADA is overpriced and you don't get anything special over the aforementioned brands. This 12 long is totally unique and for us that love aquascaping, there's almost no better tank.
My background: expert planted tank enthusiast and micro predator and shrimp breeder. I speak from experience, not what I read online. Marine depot and Mr aqua are both great!
