    ... or, If this really works and is afforable it will sell like hot cakes.

    If it half works, it would be a major plus for my large tank. Video says May 2010 but it is still not for sale according to the website.

    I wonder if I can get the family to go together at Xmas and get me one (or two, or three ...)

    That would never work in Diablo's tank, it would be hitting the floor regularly. I love the idea, very cool. I am sure neither of us would want to pay the price, looks expensive. Thanks for sharing it would be terrific to have my tanks clean themselves.

    One of the people on my local reef club forum email them for expected pricing and the range is expected to be $115 - $135 ish (number may be slightly off as I don't have the commuication handy but I expected and remember that it was close to the original pricing of a Roomba floor sweeper)

    I wouldnt want one for my octo tank but the tank in my room is often ignored as far as the glass goes... might be worth it to have one in there.
