Universal tanks

Check out www.glasscages.com out of TN.  If they come to your town they are
cheaper on the different size aquariums.  They follow many of the reptile
shows and show up with a semi totally loaded with aquariums.  Just make sure
you get the aquariums and not the reptile cages as they use thinner glass on
those.  Looks just like a name-brand aquarium.  I just got 2, 65 gallon
tanks ($80 each) from them 4' x 18" x17" to use on the bottom level of a 75
wrought iron stand combo.  The standard Co don't have any tanks that will
use the entire  4' x 18 inch footprint under the stands.  I haven't filled
them up yet but other people have been very happy with their tanks.  If you
are within driving distance of St. Louis and are looking for a 33 gallon
flatback hex or a 55 gallon on wrought iron give me a holler.  These two
setups have to go to make room!

I have been looking around for a 60gal cube tank, and
a local LFS says he can get one with stand for 250.
Does anyone have any experiences with Universal brand
tanks?  They seem to be quite a bit cheaper than
oceanic and all-glass, and I am wondering if perhaps
they use cheaper glass or shoddier workmanship.
