Anecdotal evidence: I love mine and it hasn't leaked. Had it for about 4 years. I have the 300.

Thanks. After the wife got some new furniture the space is around 60 inch. Thought the specs of the 150 and 200 would fit the bill plus leave enough room that it's not touching the couch

I love the 150. Its my 300 cut in half. I've seen quite a few at LFS and they are nice.

I'm not sure if and what corrections may or may not have been made, but I have to disagree w/ the anecdotal evidence comment.

Actually I started noticing many failures to the point that just seeing a tank failure post made me look just to see if it was a marineland tank, and many times that was the case.

Many people have had luck, many not.

I noticed many of these issues were brace failures.

I don't mean to bash the company or anyone that has one, and hopefully they have made corrections, but I have to answer honestly if a fellow and especially new reefer is asking.
A search would probably help confirm my observations and opinion.

I can assure you that my tank hasn't leaked. That's the anecdote. I was not commenting on whether Marineland has made any changes. Anecdotes are by definition true. The conclusions or assumptions made from anecdotal evidence, however, are subject to debate.

I do keep an eye on any bowing due to bracing issues and if I see any, I will take appropriate steps.
