Solid Tank

Using this as a reef tank. So far, so good.
Easy to take the enclosed light-hood apart in order to make way for more intense lighting necessary for a reef tank.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Good for first time saltwater aquarist

The SeaClear with System 2 is a good investment and a starter tank for a first time salt water aquarist, which helps ease off some of the stress in setting up a saltwater aquarium. The tank is extremely light and comes built in with the filter including a 350 gph pump, bio balls, and a pre-filter, which did an amazing job in clearing out the fine sand that I used for my tank. I guess for a FOWLR system, this tank is just enough. I dont have too many fish yet and the coralline algae is still seeding, so I've not had the necessity for a skimmer yet. Even if needed, I think the SeaClear skimmer would be just sufficient enough, unlike all the other blogs that are skeptical of using the small skimmer. The only change that I did with the aquarium is to not use the hood, as it sits too close to the water, at about an inch or two. they might as well make this optional similar to the skimmer and reduce the price point a notch to buy the better LED lighting. But I would not take off a star fior that since its just my personal opinion. Also, you must already know that acrylic scratches easily, so be sure to handle it carefully, specially when you are stacking your rocks

Very nice, love the seamless style and quietness of the tank. Ensure you hop on the website for sea clear as the directions for set up are not great. Also want to put a charcoal bag or filter in the med tray as indicated in another review. For someone wanting a low time investment on a self contained tank, this one is for you. Would recommend if you have or know someone that can wire in an additional light into the hood to do that.... light works well, but if you want more you have the option to add. Single light ballast included with light provided with tank.

Not 50 Gallons - Not even close

Just got the tank delivered yesterday. If you really want to know what this tank holds, here's the numbers:
15" x 20" x 36" = 10800 total cubic inches = 46.75 gallons. Subtract the room for the filter assembly and the tank is about 40 gallons.
Other than that it is beautiful and we are looking forward to setting it up to enjoy in our family room.

Awesome!

This SeaClear aquarium is wonderful. I have had aquariums for over 30 years and this one is by far the best. The built in filter system is great. You can add extra carbon or other type media to it if you wish. Check out the manufacturer website for more information on water levels. The information enclosed with the tank is not very thorough.

Gorgeous show tank

The SeaClear 50 gal system II produces an absolutely gorgeous display! The seamless acrylic provides perfect clarity and accurate color. The System II built in filtration sustem works flawlessly and is QUIET! If I have any complaints at all it is that it takes up a bit of room at the back of the tank, but it is the price you pay for having a complete enclosed system without any tubes, tanks or other parephanalia hanging from the back or sides of the tank. It is a complete, enclosed system. The only thing I would suggest is adding some activated carbon (in a nylon bag) to the chemical cup provided in the system II filter space. Otherwise it's ready to go and easy to set up. One thing I found takes a bit of getting used to is that the filtered water return is not at the top like the hang-on outside filters, but near the bottom of the tank and along one side! This creates a different kind of current flow than I was used to, but am able to adapt.
