Low iron glass is made with less iron than regular glass. This makes it clearer and removes most of the green hue that you often see with regular glass. It’s preferred in aquariums for the clarity of the glass. The downside is the lack of iron also means the glass is softer and much easier to scratch. It’s also more expensive, which is why the OP is questioning whether his tank actually got built from starfire glass.Can you guys explain for noobs what concerns you about "low iron" and Starphire brand? Is this a counterfeit issue? Just wondering.
Often only the front panel or front and sides is starfire. The drilled holes look clearer in the pics, but they are also further away. It’s been known to happen that manufacturers accidentally drill the front. Check to see if the panes look different.I thought starfire is blueish or clear. I ordered this new tank advertised as starfire and the front and sides are obvious green.
