Is the tank made of tempered glass, or regular glass?
I wish to drill a 2" hole into the side of the aquarium for plumbing purposes, however I don't want it to shatter like tempered glass. Would that be alright with this tank or is it made entirely out of tempered?
#30g model particularly#
It is not tempered, no, but any drilling will void the warranty.

Is it possible to get a plastic lid without the feeding cutout?
I have lost several fish over the past 6 months due to this. Seemed like a good idea when I first saw it, but it has been a problem.
No, we do not make any other style lid for this tank. Not sure how you could lose fish because of a feeding hole. For various reasons, I never put the plastic strip on the back of my 38 gallon's glass canopy and have a 2" wide area the length of the tank that is open at all times. Have never lost a fish. If you have species which are particularly prone to jumping for some reason, I would recommend placing something decorative over the opening.

Do you plan on offering a larger half moon tank in the near future.
That is not likely, no. The closest to that are the 46 and 80 gallon Euros.

30 gallon half moon
I have searched at petsmart and McClouds pet close to my zip of 95247. I have searched on Amazon. I can't find a 30 gallon half moon! No one seems inclined to help me. I have 10 gallon and 20 gallon half moon, really want a 30. Can I order directly from you? Please?!
We do not sell tanks direct as they do not survive the shipping via UPS or Fed Ex. McClouds is a local fish store, and may be able to special order this tank for you.

My aquarium shattered
I was attempting to slide the aquarium a few inches on the table. The aquarium shattered. I bought this under a year ago but do not have the receipt and petsmart won't issue me a copy. I was able to save my fish, but was cut and it was a disaster in the room. I was told I need to contact Marineland in order to get a replacement since it was under a year. What process do I need to take in order to get this issue resolved.
Regards, Richard Zella

I am planning to buy the 10 gallon half moon ,but I do not live in America what other items do you recommend that I buy before I leave the country?
This is hard for me to say, as some of the items you will need will not necessarily work in another country, such as the filter and heater. Also, some countries won't allow items in such as the fish food. However, what you want to start a tank would be:
gravel, heater, filter, decorations such as plastic plants, a thermometer, food, water conditioner
We would recommend a Whisper 10 filter, Tetramin tropical food, Aquasafe Plus from our products.

30 gal. Half Moon "GLASS" Tank?
Is this tank glass or acrylic? I have seen ones in acrylic, which is what I want, but your web page says glass. Did you change production? This will make a huge difference.
The Half Moon tanks have always been glass, except for the very small ones. 10, 20 and 30gallons are glass.

Emperor 280 measurements
Can you please tell me the measurements of your Emperor 280? I want to upgrade to this filter but the filter cut out on the 30 gallon half moon lid measures 8.5 inches and I read that the Emperor 280 was like 10 inches wide.
I believe we spoke just the other day. It is 10" wide.

where can I buy a half moon aquarium without the stand?
I can not use the stand because of a heat vent in the way and the stores refuse to sell them without the stand?
You would need to find a local fish store that will special order for you. Avoid the chains like Petsmart and Petco because they are unable to order something that their main office doesn't already carry.
I see the 20 gallon size is on www.amazon.com.

Emperor 280 fit

LED light for my tank
Hi, I bought a half moon shape 30 gallon tank last year and now the LED light went out, only about 4 of the 45 lights works. I would like to replace it. It has a fitted spot for the light on the see thru canopy. Can you please let me know where I can find a replacement? Thank You!

Is it poossible to remove the canopy completely?
Is there anyway to remove the canopy completely and have the lamps and everything else needed attached on the side of the glass? We would prefer having the aquarium open and have some reefs sticking out. Is that an option for this aquarium? Thanks.
You could do that, but you would need to buy the LED Aquarium Light by Tetra, and moisture would eventually destroy the light. And that particular light is not suitable for a live reef. You could hang the Reef Capable, but again, moisture would be an issue.

Can you use the half moon for salt water
What additonal equiptment do you need for salt water tank in half moon. Is the whisper filtration good enough for salt water.
Yes, you can. Type of filtration would be dependent upon what type of saltwater tank you wish to set up and which size of the half moon tanks you are enquiring about....but yes, the Whisper filters can be used for saltwater. You would want to change your filter media frequently, and clean the filter system monthly.
You will need a good quality light if you wish to have live rock or corals, such as the 18-24" Reef Capable light. You would also want the Seaclone 100 Skimmer or something similar.
