View Full Version : Acrylic tanks

02-12-2009, 09:44 PM
Does anyone in MB build acrylic tanks? I'm looking to upgrade but am leaning towards acrylic over glass but I can't seem to find anyone locally who can do this work. I'd also like to work with curves so acrylic is my best choice. I've talked to guys in Ontario and Alberta but nothing closer so far. Any ideas?

The only Acrylic guys in Canada that come to mind would be these guys.


Hope that helps.

I have an acrylic tank built by them, The tank itself is very well constructed, but the costumer service sucks. It was a little more than a glass tank would have cost, but was 8 weeks late on delivery. Needless to say happy with tank, unhappy with the service received. Just my opinion. Thanks,

thanks guys, I'm currently waiting for a quote from IADEM and another from Toronto and Phoenix. But alas, sorry guys I'm upgrading my freshwater outfit.

Moving up to somewhere in the 4-500 gallon range. 5' X 5' square or 1/4 cylinder. See what it'll cost me first. But I need to move my ropefish and sharks into something roomier so i appreciate the advice and would love to check out what the you salty dogs are doing.

I believe Steve (sphelps) on here works with acrylic as well, in saskatoon. Not sure if he is still doing tanks though!

I've been looking to do some acrylic building but have had no luck finding a place to even buy sheet in MB. Good luck with your tank, when you get it we want PICS! :mrgreen:

Thanks guys, we'll see what happens. Push comes to shove I revert back to glass, but unless it's built on site I can't possibly see how I'd get the damn thing into the house! So acrylic is my first choice....

Asmodeus - I'm in Brandon nearly every day. Work in town, live in Rivers. I've never used a sump filtration system before so I may be begging for insight later. :)

It is done. I've order a 1/4 cylinder with 60" x 60" faces. Had to use tenecor from Arizona. Best deal I could come up with. Very reputable. Now to start planning the transfer and species additions!
