So looks like I am back at square one.

I had the tank built by a local acrylic manufacturer but I do not trust the tank. They made it out of a material, Chemcast GP which is blacklisted by reputable aquarium builders. Apparently several, or many, tanks had failures in the past with this material. The edges were also not all that well done. The solvent work was perfect but the details are just not there for something so expensive.

Working on getting a refund.

I don't want to call them out on here since they are not an actual tank builder. Hmmm, or maybe I have already named them earlier.

Any ideas?

Cool

As I have found out in life GSP, If I want things done correct, I'll do it myself. Have yet to find a good acrylic builder in the lower mainland, so I do my own! If you have the skills and abilities GSP, do it yourself. Acrylic is easy to work with!

I would but honestly, I am a little tired of DIY after a year of DIY home reno projects. I have the tools and maybe most of the skill, don't know. I'm a little scared of DIY when it comes to 200G of water.

We'll see.

Always wondered where those acrylic sea food tanks are made...maybe go ask superstore or one of those local chinese or korean supermarkets. They are quite strong and big since they stack two or three in top of each other. Pretty surely they are done in canadavif not in gvrd.
