I may get one of those tanks. The cool thing about the tetra tank is that its glass. Does acrylic scratch easily?

Hey - how did you get yours so quickly? Supposedly mine is coming tomorrow <sigh>.

I have the Tetra - but I am not impressed since the lid is warped. Hoping that the Hawkeye will be a better investment (and it's $5 cheaper to boot.)

Yes, I would suggest you just get it shipped to your home - it's free shipping after all!!! That is what I did - had it shipped here to my house. TBH, if I could not have had it shipped here, I would not have purchased it since I would have had to go 60 miles round trip to get it - I live in a VERY rural community!

Yes, I like the Hawkeye better than the Tetra. For one thing, I like the looks of the tank better and, for another, the Tetra comes with an incandescent bulb which I replaced with a compact fluorescent so it was even MORE expensive in the end. Granted, the Tetra is glass, but with care the acrylic is very nice, IMO.

The acrylic WILL scratch easier, of course, but no problems as long as you avoid using paper towel on it. Invest a couple beans & get a scrubber made for acrylic & no problems!!!

No idea - it just came when it came (this past Saturday).

No problems with my Tetra hood - hmmmm. Maybe you should call them and let them know about the warping? Did it come that way or did it happen because of the incandescent bulb giving up too much heat?

Came this way. If I like the Hawkeye better, the tetra is going back (well, even if I don't like it better, it's going back for an exchange at least.)
