I think their tanks are all Aqueon brand tanks. Those are pretty reliable. I've got a 10gal cycling right now and I've had no problems with it yet.

Yeah, they are pretty good tanks. Mine's just fine. I don't think they are Aqueon's though. i think mine said like "Aqua Clear" or something liek that. Walmart's selling 10G tanks for $13 though. That one's an Aqueon.

I just picked up a 20G Long tank from Petco yesterday. It was a fantastic deal, so much so that I may get another one!

The quality is on par with most tanks you'll come across. Except the really nice rimless tanks. Silicone work is poor, and typical for lower end tanks. I've got a Mr.Aqua rimless that you can barely see the silicone on.

But again, for the price- it's a huge bang for the buck. I would recomend it. My goal for this new tank if to have a lot of small short plants and a big piece of driftwood. Then have nothing but a bunch of shrimp.

I kinda like the large visible silicone. =] Mostly because it gives me piece of mind that it won't leak! XD That's just my personal preference though. =P

Wish I lived near a petco. =/ Oh well hopefully I will soon! =D

So you're using the WHOLE 20 long for shrimp? Are you going to start breeding them? =] That'd be super cool! =]
