    Does anyone know anything about these tanks? Are they any good or shall i stay far away.

    There is a 1.2l x 0.46w x 0.71h in 10mm glass for a bargain somewhere.

    Regards Bossi

    Guy apperently after they are drained and filled again it looses strength. I know the 2m and 1,5m burst. I was going to get a 1,5 at a BARGAIN but saw that they burst as well. They also have the be straight straight straight as well as reinforced stand as over time the stand will bow and then it may crack. I will rather stay away personally from all curved glass tanks. period

    Johan - PLEASE STAY AWAY - FAR FAR AWAY. So far, EVERYONE on MASA who has bought one of these tanks, has had their tank burst on the rounded corners!

    I know that these are really awesome looking tanks - but you are looking for heartsore and trouble...
