Hi. my name is marc and i'm from quebec, so please escuse my english.

Usually, i make custom aquarium between 150 to 300 gallons.

But this time, somebody ask to me to built a six feet high aquarium !!!

The dimensions are : 54 " long x 24" large x 74" high

The volume will be around 375 gallons without the sump

I have a 6' deep tank made from four 1/2" starphire glass(2" thick). It receives natural sunlight and 6 /1K MH running 7 hours/day.
Water Dog Product.com made my tank. HTH

Using the following input parameters
Tank Length = 54 inches
Tank Width = 24 inches
Tank Height = 74 inches
Tank volume is calculated as
Tank Volume = 415.2 Gallons

I would love to see this tank when completed.
