    been looking for a new tank

    Post by H2O Nyck on Mon Mar 14, 2011 1:06 pm

    So i have been looking for a new tank, particularly a 33 gallon long tank, well around here you have to specially order them, so on that note, I decided to give it my first shot of actually building one, but I am gonna change the foot print a little, a traditional 33 long has the same foot as a 55 gallon tank, Well the build I will be attempting is about 48 gallons and the measurements are 57"x15" and 13" inches tall. So I am in the Process of calling around to get prices on cutting glass for this build. I will be using 1/2" inch glass btw sunny

    that sounds awesome! I don't know anyone who's built a tank, can't be cheap with the glass, but has to be a blast and a lot of pride knowing you did it

    It's usually more expensive than buy one already made if it's under 150 gals. For glass try picking up old tanks off CL that are broken and use the glass from them. Way cheaper.
