looks like your picos are getting very widely noticed Chris, which is a good thing, because these are awesome tanks. I cant wait to see what you continue to do in building your company. Great work!

Just ordered my Manta Ray 18 w/ fuge light. Also an AI Nano w/controller & Vortech MP10ES. Oh, and a Gnome Glass skimmer! I will be adding my Litermeter III for dosing 2 part, a KW300 Kalk reactor, Tunze ATO, and eventually an Apex Jr. Can anyone think of what I am missing? (other than fish, sand coral & LR?

I can't wait! Let me know when those glass cleaners become available!

 

Thanks,

Russ

PM me what you want on it Russ and I will get you a price. They are on the back burner for the moment so I can get the Skimmer and overflow kits on the market. I can make one for you though!

I haven't seen these tanks in person so I'm curious about the price/quality... How do they compare to say ADA's craftsmanship? The price point appears to be a little higher than an ADA so I'm curious if the quality can compete? Please don't take my post negatively, I'm thrilled if we can get more options available, but not sure I want to pay more than ADA... Thanks for any feedback! I look forward to what is next!!!

Getting my measurements and requirements sorted for a custom FOWLR, for my new house. Good pricing so far, and quick replies to my email.

 

Hope to get going soon! B)

Nice I guess I will have to get my Barracuda back from my brother, you used to make a smaller tank I think it was called the Orca do you still make them thinking about setting one up on my desk.

I didn't sell many of them because they are so difficult to maintain I think so I pulled them this year.

I can build one for you no problem.

Sorry, I won't be able to answer your question because I've never seen an ADA tank, although I have considered them seriously. I do think the craftsmanship in PicO is very nice, but they also have rear chambers with filtration and mini-refugium, which are features explains at least part of the added cost. Anyway, I see no reason to take your post negatively.

~Seam width is minimized for better viewing

~Bubbles are minimized with low humidity curing and assembly.

~High strength sealant

~Custom sizing and options

~They are available for purchase and not always"OUT OF STOCK"

~Made in the USA

~Genuine customer service in a timely manner

 

PicO is a very small startup and I just can't compete with the big guys when it comes to cost but I try to make up for it with 1 on 1 customer service and quality. This has been a hobby for the last few years but it is quickly growing into something more due to the support of the community.

The build process email was a nice touch. Put a big smile on our faces (the wife and I).

 

One question. Can you black out the rear for us? It will partially be hiding the wires and bits. Would that be extra? If so, any recommendations for a tiny DIY for that?

Looking at those same dimensions! Care to share how you customized your sump area?

Also, what are you going to use as a stand?
