I prefer the more modern steel tanks, but they are pricey. Still I have a couple of them for my primary tanks and several old single 72's from the 60's and 70's. I sold or gave away all my aluminum 80's. I really think the industry took a step backwards introducing them. The only good thing about aluminum 80 tanks. They are cheap. I can think of many things. I do not like about aluminum 80's. A used steel 72 is cheaper and better than a new aluminum 80. If I recall correctly the term aluminum 80 was a marketing ploy. I think they hold 76 cu.ft. instead of 80. Just my opinion and memory based on dead brain cells.
