    hi dean

    unfortunatley its difficult for e to comment as i have not really seen any used here.. the norm for us is either the Jebo or the Boyo.. alternativley and the most popular choice is to custom build the tank and setup..

    i have however see alot of these tanks used on ultimte reef aquariums..

    good luck

    At least it looks like a decent tank - the ones with the aluminium lids [Jebo] doesn't hold up to the salt... and at that price! Paid R4500 for my 1.2m Jebo.

    Good luck with the search tho deanemarine

    Aqua madic are very well made tanks, they are worth the money. I had an AM percula 120 - they are excellent.

    Hi Guys.
    Anodised surface prevents corrosion and will last indefinately depending on the grade of ali used.
