    Custom Tanks - Ottawa Area?

    Gathering quotes on a custom built tank, was hoping you might have some suggestions on who to call?

    Thanks in advance!

    Cool

    custom tanks in OTTAWA are few and far between. Eric is good but he likes to use steel frames around the glass I heard.
    you might have to order one from either MIRACLE or AQUARIUM OBSESSED. both good.

    Either 30" tall X 24" x 60" or 24" x 24" x 60" haven't made my mind up yet about height. Four 1 1/2 inch overflows drilled in back. Building a stand now and want to purchase tank before I start in on canopy. If I can find a tank close to those dimensions cheap I might just get it drilled. Probably the best way to go, but I think 24 deep and 30 high would make for an interesting tank.

    It needs to be 5 feet to fit a predetermined space I will guess. Not to many 5 footers around but i have seen 4 footers that are both deep and high. You will find that you will pay more to get a custom 5 footer made then a standard 72X24X30 but if that's the size you need then that's the size you need.

    Cool

    OSD is absolutly right. custom tanks are usually either huge,or wierd shaped. If its a standard tank your after then try asking Ivan about tanks or MARINESCAPE sells MIRACLE tanks. I built my own and it aint cheap!!!
