Bow Front 46 Gal Tank
PostedApril 3, 2013
from San Diego
I've had this tank for almost two months now and I really like it. It's an acrylic tank so there are some definite pros and cons. First, it's gorgeous. Mine came without any flaws or scratches. It was surprisingly light for its size, I was able to easily pick up the box it came in and carry it inside the house. The tank came with a fluorescent hood and lighting fixture, suitable for a regular 2-pin, 24" T-12 or T-8 fluorescent light of up to 40W. Cons: Acrylic scratches easily, I've been lucky/careful so far. The tank has no frame, so the top of the tank is not completely open, see the photo for dimensions of the tank opening. In other reviews of this type tank, I heard that the fluorescent fixtures got hot and warped the top of the tank. Using a T8 17W bulb, the lighting fixture did get a little warm, but not too much in my opinion. To be safe, I drilled two holes in the top of the hood to let additional hear escape.
