I had Phuong make a custom ATO container to fit my stand in my new build. I couldn't buy an off the shelf one because I had a tight space to work with & needed specific dimensions. I also wanted a couple customized features, which he was more than happy to do. Of course, once again the craftsmanship is superb! I wanted top, back & bottom red and the rest clear. Also I wanted to mount my aqualifter to the rear side of the container, to which Phuong cut a custom slit for the bracket. He also put a larger hole for a push fitting connector that I wanted to use with rigid airline. It came out waaaay better than I expected!! If you want something nice, this is the place to go!!!! Thanks Phuong!! Here's some pics...

 

Packing = Excellent

I wanted the slit cut for the aqualifter & sent him the holder. Although he said he didnt need it, made me feel better to send it to him along with the push fitting I wanted to use! Lol

Gonna be a little bit for that, have everything torn apart atm, working on the last details before setup.

Thanks OMW. Came out pretty good, I must agree. Phuong does amazing work. This was one of the last pieces for my new build; haven't bought a new tank in over 10 years, so trying to get it all the way I want it before I even attempt setup. This build has been 6+ months in the making! Lol. Like your 33 long too, checked it out a few weeks ago. I actually considered the 33L tank as it was long & shallow, but wanted to stay around the 20 gal mark.

I really appreciated the compliments and thank you the the great write up Marc! im glad it arrived in perfect condition, shipping was my most concern when it comes to shipping these ATO tanks after all the hard work.

Not to mention the epic instruction Marc included with a mini Christmas card :). That was helpful!

You should, still need to pick up that diffuser film. If you wait for a little while I'll have some coral that needs to go, not transferring it all over. Think my beautiful electric green plate is gonna go :( want to keep the sand bed empty on the new tank.
