    Where to buy Oceanic Tech fish tanks?

    The only dealer in Ontario is

    SUPER PET
    1379 LONDON ROAD
    SARNIA, , N7s 1p8

    Does anybody know an alternative way to get these tanks?

    Nevermind.

    I was at Marinescape today.. They can get them and told me its $1100 for the 90g.

    Thats almost laughable. Needless to say, the AGA 90g will be perfectly fine

    Curious.

    Would a 90g custom acrylic tank be more expensive than a 90g AGA Megaflow ($489) ?

    If its in the same ballpark who do I contact to have one made?

    IMO: i wouldn't make your display out of acrylic, unless you plan to keep it 100% clean from day one and every day after that. it is very hard to keep an acrylic tank clean of coraline and algae without scratching it.

    if you want to get a price i think Acrylic City has a forum on this website ( look under 'Partners' ). i probably couldn't even get the material for the price of the AGA.

    I thought AGA and Oceanic were the same company now...

    OCEANIC and AGA are seperate.
    OCEANIC apparently have really gone downhill while AGA still make great tanks. a 90g is a standard tank and BA carries them for alot cheaper.
    MIRACLES and NORTH AMERICAN FISHBREEDERS and AQUARIUM OBSESSED also make asome custom tanks.

    I've seen some nice tanks at persmart on marivale lately.. small ones only.. like from 2g to 20g.. but had a real clear glass.. small seams and most had no plastic trim.. they just looked soo clean and clean compared to the aga's same size sitting beside.
    the lady told me they were from europe.. I asked a bit of info.. didn't get much. she told me they are all tempered.... and awnsered the same thing with the AGA.. which I know for a fact are not tempered sides... anyways.. i was looking to add something in my kitchen that would be hooked up to my sump in the basement.. so no heating, no filtration needed.. just circulation and lights and a hole in the back for the drain.

    i'm not a fan of acrylic myself... had a small one before.. found that even with the most care.. i still ended up scratching it outside and inside... acrylic. good for sumps ( but thats only my opinion ).
