    yeh but they never return there freaking calls!!!!!! your talking APRIL INDUSTRIES right? I had to bite the bullet today and make up my mind. Each way I turned my tank will cost over $3000 to make or buy. I unfortunaltly have to make it as it would be impossible to get it down the stiars to the basement.
    dimensions 96''x34''x36'' all glass. well over a thousand pounds!
    so I pirchased my first 2 pieces of glass today from BROWN&MACFARLANE. 2x 34''x36''[19mm] with a hole in each pane for closed loop came to $600 It will take some time to build but this is no small project.

    Cool FLAME

    nah, nothing to it. actually, its more the weight and having to move the sections of glass that worry me more than anything.
    as long as I use the right amount of silicone between the joints I'm not worried.far as I can tell 1/8'' of silicone should be more than enough but I have to research a bit more on this. I fixed my 90g and checked out an IA tank at IJOS.This is gonna be a monster tank!!! 96'' x 36''deep x 34'' high!
