Where to buy actual 12 gallon tank?

Recommended Posts

I bought a 12 gallon nano cube from a reefer on this site and it arrived cracked on both sides. I think UPS is going to fund me $80 because that is how much was insured. The lights work fine just the tank is busted. IS there any way I can buy the actual tank without the lights? Where and how much?

You can buy a hoodless nanocube off nanocustoms for $50 like I did.

They put down the tank to weigh 42 lbs but when I had teh other one shipped it even came with a ballast and was only 30 lbs. Why is it so much at nanocustoms?

Thats a great question.

 

For shippers, they charge what is called a dimensional weight.

 

Every cube leaves nanocustoms with peanuts packed inside the tank, in the original box, and then wrapped in bubble wrap and peanuts (2 inches around each dimension).

 

The final shipping box is 20x20x20. Because of its size, dimensional weight is used instead of actual weight. In this case, a 20x20x20 is billed as 41 lbs.

 

If your shipper shipped in the factory box, or with little packing, thats probably why it broke.
