    I saw the tank last night. And yes it is brand new. Never tasted any water.
    Nothing wrong with the tank.
    A bit deep to my liking, but then deeper tanks do show off visually better than shallower tanks. (that is my opinion)

    maxisoft, a few things to consider when comparing your tank to this one:

    - Was you tank locally built or imported?
    - Does it have rounded corners?
    - How thick is the glass?

    I may be wrong, but my guess is your tank was locally built, does not have rounded corners and has 10mm glass. That would explain the price difference.

    I'm not saying this tank is better than yours, I'm just pointing out why it is more expensive.

    As I said, decent offers will be considered. ;)
