I'm looking for information on converting an existing gas fireplace with a really ugly log set to use aquatic glassel or "fire & ice" products ~ has anyone converted an indoor fireplace?

if you want to convert your gas fireplace to something other then what it already is, you have to have a existing wood burning fireplace, or a complete new gas fireplace.
Gas fireplaces can not be modified from there original design. If you have a wood fireplace that has been converted to gas logs or a gas insert then you can buy a product called fire and ice. Google them. If you have a gas fireplace, you will need to rip it out and start over with one that you like. town and country makes one that has glass and rocks. in it.

its all in the termonolgy.

gas fireplace = new construction or remodel gas fireplace that cant burn wood.

gas logs = wood fireplace that has been converted to gas and uses the existing chimney to exaust gasses

gas inserts = wood burning fireplaces that have been converted to gas, these differ from gas logs because there a sealed unit and the chimney has been relined for combustion air and exaust.
