    Q: Where to get a custom sized aquarium (glass or acrylic)?

    Looking for options to have my custom tank built. Final dimensions won't be known until the cabinetry is done, but I am looking for:

    left-right: 31-32"
    front-back: 24"
    top-bottom: 24"
    2 drilled (1") corner overflows

    Depending on the cabinet, I might need a custom sump if I cannot fit one of my current tanks in there...

    Suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    I think its been asked before but maybe not.... Why are you putting 2 corner overflows on a tank that small? Totally unnecesary (sp?) and they will take up what precious little room you have left to right. You will regret it when aquascaping. As soeone who has built plenty of stands for people, I must say that building the tank to fit the stand is a little backwards. And probably more expensive than having the stand built to fit a stock tank size.

    I am still kicking the 2 overflow idea around.

    Sorry - my original post wasn't all that clear. One would build the stand first in the built in situation I am in. The tank will be filling a short (25") doorway/hallway. Although I have not built any stands, since we are going for a built in/furniture look, the only real way is to build the stand/cabinet first. At least that's the way I see it.

    Thanks,
    Andrew
