 Dear  All
 
               I  am  planning  a  new  planted  Tank,  rimless  4FT  X24  in(W)  x21  in  (H).
 
               Due  to  rimless  design  the  glass  thickness  decided  is  12  mm.
 
               Planning  to  go  for  a  Ultraclear(Low  Iron  )  Glass  for  all  sides  except  the  bottom.
 
               The  glass  price  per  squarefeet  is  double  that  of  normal  float  glass  of  12mm.
 
               Is  the  extra  money  worth  the  look?  
 
               Thanks  in  advance.

 It  is  quite  good  if  you  are  setting  up  a  show  tank.
 You  can  save  quite  a  bit  though,  if  you  only  have  the  front  glass  or  front  and  side  glasses  made  with  ultraclear  glass.
 What  it  doesnt  give  you  is  the  green  tint,  you  see  with  normal  glass.

 Dear  All
 
                            Due  to  location  of  the  tank  I  will  have  to  have  all  sides  in  Ultraclear  glass.  I  am  OK  with  that.
 
                            Only  the  bottom  glass  can  be  Normal  float  glass.
 
                            Has  anyone  used  Ultraclear  glass  and  what  are  the  experiences?
 
                            Regards

 Look  at  the  tank  being  setup  by  Madan.  That  is  ADA  crystal  glass.

 Dear  Pradeep
 
 
                         Thanks  for  the  Link.
                         I  did  see  these  tanks  in  ADA  Cat  but  seeing  them  in  thumbnails  does  not  give  a  clear  idea.
               
                         Looks  good  .

 Starphire  or  Crystal  glass  is  more  evident  when  the  glass  thickness  is  over  12mm.  Under  this,  the  difference  is  only  marginal.
 
 Have  a  look  at  both  the  samples  in  the  glass  store  side  by  side  and  decide.
 
 Pros:  The  Look
 Cons:  The  Price.

 Dear  Pradeep
 
                               Thanks  a  lot  for  the  link.
 
                               The  photograph  on  the  second  page  says  it  all.
 
                               Will  go  for  Low  iron  glass.  Smile   
 
                               The  difference  may  be  minor  to  the  eyes  but  while  photographing  a  DSLR  camera  will  definitely  
 
                               capture  the  tinge.
 
                               Regards.
