I have also been disappointed with Perfecto's lack of perfection, quite
frequently, in fact. I stick with All Glass Aquarium tanks and hardware. I
haven't yet had a problem with any AGA product, and the prices are
competitive. Okay, maybe a buck or two more for a hood, but the difference
in price is not as great as the difference in quality. The last Perfecto
hood I bought came with the ballast unattached. I mean, it was in the right
place, and wired up properly, but no one bothered to install the mounting
screws. To me, that is sad.
On a side note, AGA bought ouut Oceanic about a year ago. I keep thinking
this will make them Oceanic tanks available here in the Northwest soon, but I
haven't seen any. Does anyone know whether the line is still in production?
