New material to me, so I thought I'd research it some. Amazing product.

But I also saw this on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexan):

Lexan leaches (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaching) bisphenol A (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisphenol_A), a chemical that some studies linked to cancer. These studies indicate exposure to low levels of BPA causes a range of serious health effects in laboratory animals.

Does anyone know if this issue has been resolved? I'm not sure how old the Wikpedia information is. Maybe the leaching is sufficiently minimal and doesn't affect the saltwate aquarium?

I'm not sure, but San Francisco has banned clear plastic baby bottles.
