    any slim tanks out there ?

    ...been dreaming about a tank on the deck ever since I built it.
    something i'd suspend to the roof and would see through it.
    thinking 60"x30"x4". anything out there with similar sizes ?

    i can make my own.. but before I do this.. would like to see how much they are new.. and not have to reinvent the wheel kind of thing.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    or even just an exterior aquarium you keep on the deck.
    i see tons of people in the states with them.. so i imagine it can be done here.. just a few months less he he.

    Would be emptied and brought inside in the fall.
    I would probebly design the stand to be easily unhooked from the ceiling.

    You know liv that for most people that want an outside fish tank they put in a pond. Much easier to clean and no need to tear it down in the winter.

    true.. but i'm running out of space. I do have one side of the deck that is totally useless.. I could make a pond out of 4x4's as I got about 4-5" of soil before rock. is a pond considered a moveable structure ? lol.. cauz I put my deck at the limit.. the pond would make me pass that limit by like 2feet.

    I was thinking 8Lx2Wx3D.. I could make it quite long.. I got 15feet wide on that side doing nothing....

    I would just like to put a tank in the space that is between me and the closest neighbour.. would be nice to have a fish tank in the air that I can see through..

    I emailed that company.. I know its going to be ridiculously expensive and out of my budget.

    if I were to do it out of wood, any special directions ? should I put foam between the wood and the pond liner ? whats the best option for filtering a pond...

    keep the ideas going.. I love it

    I think those tanks start at 5k (I had contacted them a few years ago). I was never able to keep any of my tanks as clean as these are pictures. I doubt they would look like this long term unless your running a fresh water setup.
