    Defaultwhere would you recommend buying a nice cube?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of a reasonably priced place to buy a mid sized cube, with good clear, iron free glass?

    ADA was around in some stores (eg. Aquarium's West) but I understand they had stocking problems and prices were a premium. They have a new brand now, and seems reasonably priced, but can anyone recommend another source/store competitive brand? Within Vancouver driving distance? I can't imagine mail order to be a good option.

    Let me know your thoughts!

    thank you!
    Jessica

    At least two CUBE tanks sold on here within the past month (a 17-g and a 40-g).

    Keep your eyes peeled on BCAQUARIA. These pop up from time to time . . . although, depending on how soon you require it OR how long you can wait.

    $100 for a 30cm cube. A smaller but very elegant 7 gallons.

    Other goodies are reasonably priced and maybe you can get a deal with multiple items:

    Pat from Canadian Aquatics sells Starphire tanks which are similar to ADA but cheaper.
    CANADIAN AQUATICS

    I may have 2-3 ADA tanks for sale in the next 2 months as well if you're able to wait.
    Or like others have mentioned, keep watching craigslist or BCA.

    Ah yes, sadly they are out of starphire stock and will not restock until they some some of the ADA stock.
    I had contacted them earlier in the month.

    thanks for the suggestion. I was wondering if there was another type of small business like that ; )

    Thanks very much for sending the link. I had forgotten to look at craigslist anymore as I've never seen a tank as gorgeous at that one on there before!

    Yes, I'll keep my eye out if you list a cube or two.

    Between 5-8 gal.

    Love the picture of the little raspborras in your tank. I have a dozen too.
