Thumbs up Your thoughts?

I was going to divide another 10 gallon but I will wait on that because of some issues. Anyway I ordered these because it seemed like a great deal http://cgi.ebay.com/Qty-4-Eclipse-Ex...item20ae04d8f8
What do you think? Does it look like a good deal? Do these look like good tanks? I was just going to order some kritter keepers but these tanks have a small filter and a light and kritter keepers are so plain. Anyway I just wanted to share this deal and see what everyone thinks about these tanks. Thanks!

Yes, you can get scammed on Ebay, but that seller has EXCELLENT feedback. I, personally, would not be afraid to order from him/her.

Eclipse makes very nice tanks - I have some Eclipse 3's & have always been happy with them.

That seems a tad pricey to me - especially with the shipping. Pretty sure you can find that tank for less if you look around on Ebay and/or the internet.

OR - you can go bigger (5 gal.) for less:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tetra-Aqua...-Pets/12177653

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-5-...arium/14660258

The Tetra kit has a glass tank & the Hawkeye is acrylic - BOTH are free shipping!!! And both are less expensive than what you are looking at.

I own both of these tanks and am very happy with them. I am a tad partial to the Hawkeye because I like the shape & it comes with a 9 watt fluorescent screw in bulb while the tetra comes with incandescent lighting.

Just for fun, I am including a pic of my Hawkeye (light is off in this pic).

That price is for a quantity of 4 tanks that have the filter in them. It is about $10 per tank plus shipping. I thought the deal was pretty good. Yes, I made sure to check out their feedback before buying and they do have wonderful feedback.
