Well, FWIW, I got tired of the less than perfect workmanship of Perfecto 
products long ago.  Oceanic's tanks are made with more care, using slightly 
heavier glass.  Take a close look at the way the silicone is smppthed out in 
the corners.  Look at the edges of the glass to see the thicknesses.  The 
high-end shops carry Oceanic because they are trying to maintain a reputation 
for quality products.
