I agree, though, that if cost is a consideration, Matala loses.

Those are all one time purchases though, and a good chunk of folks already have those lying around anyways. I can make a false bottom in an hour? Maybe? For a large tank. To me, that's worth saving 50-100$. But, full disclosure, I'm a cheapskate and like DIY projects .
