    looks Awesome with great lights over 200W there. Would have prefered it to come with a proper sump rather then that internal filter and skimmer. I think it will retail here for +7000

    I heard it would be a bit higher priced than 7K, but concidering what you pay for a Boyu or a JBJ, which some would actually argue even has a skimmer, very poor surface skimming and very poor lighting.

    heres a comparison of lighting outputs:

    Boyu TL-450 = 0.62 W/L (2x18w/58lts)
    Boyu -TL-550 = 0.375 W/L (2x36w/128lts)
    JBJ 24g =0.75 W/L (2x36w/+-96lts)

    Well, we'll have to wait and see...

    Warr thats my opinion not sure of the actual price but when we see 90L JBJ Nanos for 3000 i think that 7000 or thereabouts would be the price

    If it's even more than R7K, then I would rather build a 250L cube and DIY lights, sump etc. and you sorted, for less.

    But I suppose the whole look of the tank will sell it.

    I am sure for more than R7K you can get Adriaan to BUILD you a STARFIRE glass tank!

    I think you right Warr, for the people that are not obsesed with the hobby like us, and want a "plug and play" system that looks good.

    Damn nice tank but like all of these AIO tanks, you pay for the entire package deal. Obviously cheaper building your own - but some prefer having it all in one...

    Saying that if I had R7K I could build an awesome cube!

    Its too much money in my opinion for such a small all-in-one system.

    Cant see the links aswell...doesnt bring up any pics.
