View Full Version : Looking for a special tank

01/16/2010, 04:11 PM
I have a spot in my kitchen I want to add another new tank. I want a complete setup with Reactors, plumbing, sump, and filtration. I really like Elos but I'm more interested with a tank with a top. Dimensions 48-(21-24W)-(20-24L). Most important it needs to be high quality furniture stand. Any info on locating a tank (builder) would be awesome. Thanks! Sps tank by the way I have the 48" Geisemann 250w Infinity light waiting for the right tank.

Cardiff (sp?) or Solana tanks? Look at PremiumAquatics.com or MarineDepot.com

There's another new one about the size you are looking for but cant remember the name.

Marineland is also making cubes.

I currently have a Solana 34. I'm looking for 120 gallon I put in a call to Deltec about there micro reef but havent heard anything back. Was just curious if there are any other custom tank builders out there besides Deltec and Elos that make complete setups for larger tanks.

A lot of reef central people like Miracles in Glass http://www.miraclesaquariums.com/
Envision acrylics is also touted as great by many here.
And then there's Glass Cages, some have bad luck with them, some have good luck with them.

Good luck.

Do you have a local reef club?
That's how I found my stand builder and tank builder.
If not, how about asking around at your local fish shops?

LOTS of people I know (myself included) have owned tanks from Miracles. IMO they are the best custom mfg. on the market. Give 'em a call! :)

PS- Why don't you like the rimless tanks, just out of curiousity?

Find you a local cabinet shop to make your stand. 99.9% of factory stands are as ugly and cheap as anything I have ever seen....even Elos stands look like junk.

I actually do like rimless but I have had terrible luck with finding fish on the floor.
