 Hi  guys,
 
                  I  recently  purchased  glass  for  fish  tank  from  shivaji  nagar  (extra  clear  glass)  for  200/sqft.  But  after  setting  up  my  tank  i  found  that  its  not  that  clear  i  expected.  Are  crystal  clear  glases  better  than  this?  Please  suggest  me  any  other  place  where  i  get  glasses  which  are  better  than  extra  clear  but  at  the  same  time  not  too  costly  like  ada.

 You  can  make  out  the  clarity  of  extra  clear  glass  by  looking  at  the  cut  edge,  It  should  be  pure  white  when  you  view  in  to  the  cut  edge.
 But  then,  there  are  lower  quality  extra  clear  which  the  glass  shops  pass  off  as  the  best.  
 ADA  tanks  are  costly  because  the  shipping  charges  and  handling  are  passed  on  to  us,  if  you  send  a  tank  from  India  to  Japan  then  your  low  cost  tank  can  become  pricey  when  it  lands  in  Japan.
 I  had  checked  out  in  our  locality  for  a  36x18x18  tank,  the  shops  gave  a  quotation  for  10mm  extra  clear  glass  which  varied  from  7k  to  8.5  which  included  polishing  of  all  the  edges..
 So,  you  can  guess  that  the  price  depends  on  how  clear  the  extra  clear  glass  are..

 What  is  the  thickness  of  the  glass?  What  is  the  colour  of  the  of  the  edge  of  the  glass  when  seen  from  top  or  side?
 Mine  has  a  very  light  green  tint  when  seen  from  the  side.  Even  I  was  not  satisfied  with  it  and  the  dealer  said  that  as  the  size  of  the  pane  and  thickness  increases,  the  tint  does  come  in.  
 Only  the  front  of  my  tank  is  extra  clear  and  it  does  makes  a  difference  in  viewing  as  compared  to  m  normal  clear  glass.
 My  glass  pane  is  36"  x  24"  &  10mm  and  bought  it  for  nearly  the  same  price  of  yours  around  3  yrs  back.

 In  200/sq.ft  you  won't  get  the  true  extra  clear  glass.  You  can  ask  the  dealer  to  show  you  samples  of  extra  clear  glass  of  a  modigaurd  and  saintgobain  brands  and  compare  them  with  what  u  have.  If  your  tank  is  still  empty,  you  can  get  the  viewing  sides  panes  changed  with  better  clarity  glass.  Maybe  the  dealer  wants  to  hear  "ULTRA  clear"  before  he  gives  you  what  he  should  had  earlier.

 Try  impact  glass   in  bangalore  ,  I  did  buy(12mm  extra  clear  glass)  from  there  couple  of  months  its  a  safety  glass  factory.
 As  above  mentioned  we  cannot  get  crystal  clear  glass  at  this  cost  but  I  felt  i  got  glass  with  least  tint  and  pretty  clear  to  my  satisfaction  with  no  scratches  and  edges  CNC  polishing.  I  did  try  to  reach  sales  &  marketing  of  Saint  Gobain  who  has  Diamant  glass  which  is  their  brand  of  Xtra  clear  glass.  But  non  had  stock  as  its  not  fast  moving  and  mind  it  this  glass  is  quite  brittle   then  the  normal  glass  as  the  iron  content  in  glass  which  make  it  green  is  quite  less.
 
 Note:  Do  not  buy  a  tempered  glass  which  they  may  offer  
 
 Hope  it  helps  with  your  next  tank  ....

 As  per  I  know  the  Extra  Clear  Glass  cost  not  less  than  350/+  /sq.ft.  So  for  200/sq.ft  it
 won't  be  a  good  quality.
 
 Nidhi  and  immu  already  said  the  fact.
