That's what I was thinking rob - just was trying to guage whether it would be cheaper to have one built to my specs or for me to build one. Main problem is no table saw. I got a circular and miter...but when I tried acrylic in the past I've always cracked a 45$ sheet trying to use a circular lol...

Just buy a tank that fits your dimensions and derim it. Woosh

 

 

There's an option and that way only thing you need to cut is baffles

I wanna increase the height from 12 to 18 inches and do a double reverse separator sump such as here but taller

What dimensions do you need? If you just need a taller tank go with something like a 15 tall. That's 18" tall I'm pretty sure.

Haha love you too brad! I have a 15 tall that was a tetra tank for a while. It should be an easy tank to track down, I got mine at Petsmart. Marineland brand.

Also...I'm going to build the second cabinet for the reef angel this weekend....and then finish them both together....I haven't decided yet...but I think hype has convinced me to get a seahorse pair...so the third tank may be a seahorse and dragon tongue tank.....oh shiizzz

Oh...I thought you had put up drawings before with two small tanks flanking the big tank...or was that the frag and mantis tanks? Maybe I dreamt it. Or maybe I'm psychic :lol:

Your right this was the drawing/idea...but I'm changing it to clownemetope on right and seahorseytope on left I think...and new sump will be windowed for display..

Yea. I think the seahorse tank I'll move the dragon tongue over.. and add 3 or 4 mangroves and some planted halimeda(sp?).and the new sump will be 20 long and 18 high...soon I'm thinking a fuge window that's 14inches wide by 14high. And maybe add another macro other then cheato to the sump..something bluish or orangish..maybe put a couple sponges

So I'm gonna concentrate on getting both tanks set up at the same time - provided my clowns can behave for a couple more weeks. Picking up a 15 high tonight provided pet smart still has it. So sump first. Then I'll add the water volume of both tanks after new sump.settles...oh this is gonna be funnnnnnnnn

I somehow missed the decision to get a seahorse tank. Very cool! You're going to fill your entire house with tanks at the rate you're going :D
