Hello everyone. I got the green light from the wife. I'm a newbie to this hobby and looking for who builds tanks
I would like a 60x24x30. Or if anyone has one they want to get rid of. I'll need a sump as well. This is a new build so am looking to put this thing together over time. I'll need all equipment as well. Skimmer, pump, power heads, heaters, live rock. Anyone have some ideas would love to hear from you. Or if you have some equipment your selling give me a shout. Look forward to getting this thing going and hearing from some of you.

I heard aqua giant was a little suspect on their builds as they do t have a very clean work shop. I was there and it did look pretty dirty and a mess.

I gotta say. Sweet set up. We will have to chat as I get this thing going over time. I love the coast to coast idea. Just not sure i have the room for it. What can you tell me about aquagiant. Are they reliable.

there is absolutely nothing wrong with the custom tanks david makes at aquagiant and they will be probably about half of any where else in the city.
just my 2 cents...I guess know it would be rounded down to no sense.
I have about 20 that david made and I haven't had a problem with any of them.

Here's mine after it was newly set up. It's a custom brace-less 96" x 16" x 16" with dual overflows(one in each corner). It also has an inside drop down black trim that hold some custom mesh lids(built by me, not AI). I also had a custom sump built that measures 60" x 14" x 14".

Bob, aka Codfather, built his own tank, but purchased his glass from Aquagiant, he told me he got all the glass for almost half the price another builder wanted for just the bottom piece of his tank.

Yep.
I bought all my glass from David.
Cut and polished, I did have a little wait, but
it was worth it in the end.

I had a 60x30x34 built by Neil Wilson Glass products and couldn't be happier with the product and service. Very reasonably priced aswell. Pm me if you want their #.

You have never seen Concepts shop then :lol:

Definatly don't judge by looks, I have seen several Aquagiant & Neil Wilson tanks ( built stands for both of them ) both are great quality & professionally built. You can't go wrong with either.
