Looks Good!

Are you still happy with the CadLights Versa aquarium?  Any issues?

Thanks.

Thank you!

 

No issues with the tank or stand whatsoever. Definitely good value in that purchase and would buy again.

 

I recently upgraded the other Cad equipment I initially purchased (skimmer, reactor). Should have just spent a little more on those items in the first place.

I have been looking at the Versa and Artisan for a while and really like them (tank & stand).  I just see so many negative reviews that it is nice to see a positive experience.

 

Yes, if money allows, I would like to use a different sump (maybe Trigger) and different accessories.

Yeah I read all the same stuff, but most complaints were about customer service and not the product itself. The price was right for the basics so I gave it a shot and am glad I did. For a quality tank/stand I think it's hard to beat. With a few easy upgrades you'll have a great system and it will still cost way less than some of the bigger brand names.
