    Hey All,

    TIA, Scott

    I have a 210 in my office. Seems nice. No problems thus far, although if I were to do it again, I'd go acrylic.

    Thanks for the comments. Colleen has been running a 60 gal acrylic. There are +'s and -'s to both acrylic and glass. Right now it seems the most cost effective to go with the AGA since the bucks arn't there to get a 90 RR acrylic tank.
    Thanks Matt for digging up the thread for me.
    Scott;D

    I have a 75G Mega. The only problem is it's too small :)

    No I have not had any problems with it at all. I did mess around with the hight of the stand pipe for a very long time but that was no fault of the product. I'm a little slow and it took me some time to figure out I had the wrong bulkhead installed.
    The teath of the over flow tend to grow hair algea but a old tooth brush scrub once a month seems to work fine. (ever since I got a better skimmer I haven't had to do it at all

    I would recommend AGA over others 100% of the time

    Just stay away from the AGA Bowfront tanks. I have a 72 that has developed a slow leak. I know others with similar problems.

    Ya I had 2 72G bows from Oceanic both blew a seam in 4 months.

    Don't know about the AGA but since they are the same company it's quite possible the AGA have the same problems.

    six degrees of Jason more like if it's gone wrong it's happened to me :)

    Mine does... :(

    I'm already hunting around for a reasonable replacement. I think I'll look for a local used 90-125 Acrylic. (I think my wife is going to kill me if I buy another tank.:laughings )
