Could have maybe mistaken the frosted for plastic. Frosted glass has a different texture to it.




How can you tell? I have the tank sitting in front of me right now. I am loathe to take the glass out because its a bitch fiddling with those tiny (and 2 different sized) o-rings. I scratched on it with a screwdriver pretty hard and didn't leave a big scratch. I think it's glass, but can't be sure. There are some pretty amazing plastics these days.

You can tell by taping on it with your nail, by how hard it feels when you scratch the edge with your nail, by weight and by looking at the edges. Alternatively you can hit it with a hammer :)

If I'm ignoring you it's because you're fallacy impaired. Here's hoping you rectify your problem so that we might have a sensible conversation.

Mine has arrived yesterday and it does not have any logos either, just a serial number.

Also the metal does not look clean and polished like in the pictures posted in reviews but rather a brushed cheap looking metal.

Totally disappointed.

I know how you feel. I decided not to order another one. It is always hit or miss here...you just never know what they'll send.

Edit: Haluk, I should add a couple of observations; Mine didn't even have the serial number, but it seems to be well made, and not a clump of shit like you got. I would definitely order another if I thought it would be the same, but I hesitate because I am well versed with their switching to crap on formerly excellent products, keeping same sku and reviews.
