Marineland® 60 Gallon Heartland LED Aquarium with Stand
15% off with instore pickup makes it $186.99 plus tax

Looks as if they re-designed this aquarium stand to accept a canister filter if one wanted, also has upgraded to an led light. The light is just that....nothing to support plant life or corals. The stand is engineered to support the weight of the aquarium but is built without quality in mind (basicaly keep it dry lol) The height of he aquarium is difficult to clean for the shorter people (me). Soggy armpit syndrome occurs as you try and reach in to clean with the tall tank. This tank is a top heavy setup and use caution on carpet and level accordingly.

If this is for a gift, Keep in mind the expenses of filters, heater, substrate, and fish.

This is a decent start but you will need more pieces.

I used to own this aquarium in the older model. Problem free. There are some bad reviews about leaking, you can see that marineland has responded to most negative claims offering assistance.
People stating aquarium leakage I would almost assume never leveled the aquarium properly, with an unlevel aquarium it puts a lot of pressure on particular seams. It may not instantly leak , but over time they will more than likely have problems.

This has been a little cheaper in the past, it is a good sign of aquarium sales in he near future.

Enjoy

Good deal but that stand looks a little sketchy to be putting ~500lbs of as you say an already sort of top-heavy 60 on. Maybe it looks better in person. Have to take a look when I go in later this week.

I have had the similar stand on the 60 gallon, no issues but I was on solid floor. I would anchor to the wall on carpet though. Good luck

Keep an eye on petsmart, last year the fx6 went on sale for $170. They change there prices quickly and often. The 75 gallon marineland also became a money maker last year about this time.

Yes the fx6 was last Black Friday. Didn't get one at the time because i had no need for it but now with multiple 220 gallons I can definitely use it. Was very disappointed it didn't go on sale this year. But yes petsmart is great. This year I picked some emperors 400 on Black Friday for 20 bucks. Also when they clearanced their National Geographic (rebranded Ehiem) stuff there were some absolute steals.

I got this 1/1/17 for a little cheaper.
subtotal: $174.99
Order Discount applied: - $20.00
sales tax: $12.79
shipping: $0.00
total: $167.78

For our first tank it's been great and there have been no problems. I agree that the tank is tall and even myself at 6'1' I find it hard to clean without the soggy armpit. Lifting buckets to pour water in may also be a challenge.

On the plus side the tank is narrower so it sticks out less into the room and it offers more viewing area from the front.

How about those octagon shaped tanks, never owned a fish tank but they look pretty cool. Would have to look into the most least maintenance setup w/ fish.

this one has a better stand than previous deals. I like the idea of this tank but its pretty skinny when you see it in person. IMO the 75G is superior but never gets priced this low.

Grab a Python No Spill Clean and Fill Aquarium Gravel Tube off Amazon and you will never have soggy armpits again. They sell them in 24"($11.99) and 30"($16.15) lengths. They are meant to go with the Python No Spill Clean and Fill Aquarium Maintenance System but since those can be a bit pricey you could connect it to your sink with a standard garden hose by purchasing a cheap Waterbed Fill & Drain Kit(Blue Magic Waterbed fill kit $7.89 Amazon). If you already have a garden hose the 24" gravel tube and the waterbed fill kit should cost you around $20. If you do not own a garden hose I would recommend purchasing a drinking water safe hose. You'll never have to fill a bucket again and you arms will stay out of your fish tank.

Avoid them.

All those seams give more opportunity to leak, and they cost 2x for the same gallons that a square tank costs.

Call any aquarium shop and ask if they'll reseal your oct tank. I've never found a single shop that will touch them.

I have the extra large of top-fin-aquarium-gravel-vacuum [petsmart.com]. My arms get wet when I'm pulling out and putting in the decor but this would make things easier.

Looks like your solution will work if I run a hose to the outside as I don't have indoor faucets that would connect; I'll check if there is an adapter or if I can pull off the tip of a indoor faucet to make it work.

Google hose faucet adapters, yes they are out there

Yup, the Python is the way to go! Best thing since sliced bread and I think whoever designed it should get the Nobel prize for fish or something Smilie. I have this tank setup I bought from two years ago around Christmas for $168. It's been problem free and the best tank I've owned. Stand is sturdy, but canister filters don't fit in the old style cabinet. Running a Fluval G6 and it cleans like a rock star.
