Our Biggest Custom ATO Tank Yet...Pushing Over The Limit!

Recommended Posts

Oceanbox Designs

Holds approx 15 gallons. Built for a friend that absolutely need it for his long vacation and I don't build anything larger than 10G and longer than 16" as mentioned before but pushing it over the limit with success is a huge step up for me.

 

Structural engineered and designed by Oceanbox Designs™

 

Dimensions: 20Lx12Wx15H"

 

When you are not being difficult with design/color, this is what you can expect!

How thick acrylic, and what is that center red piece on the bottom?

 

Looks excellent, as always!

Looks like a brace to keep the sides from blowing out.

1/4", the center and top piece (behind the lid) are for structural supports. This tank has been filled tested for a week before shipping.

 

Thank you!

Something like that but actually to reduce bowing (not blowing as in breaking apart) and also provide extra support vertically/horizontally.

I don't think so. If you're trying to go High-End Hillbilly, then at least use a Rubbermaid container! Hahaha

What shape/dimensions do you have in mind? If you need to fit into certain space, send me some details and I'll work something up for you.

I shall contact you as soon as I find measuring tape! The right side of my stand is empty sans some wires, a lot of room. Ill use an online calculator to see volume and PM you dimensions.

Sounds good or we can just keep it the same as the petco 10G tank.
