Very nice! I can see why you are excited ! Where did you get it ?

 

Thank you, my Friend Ruben made the tank for me.

I have never met him but I have heard if Ruben. I love the shallow tanks! Maybe it's because I have short arms! Looking forward to seeing your bike thread!

I have never seen an overflow in the center of a tank. Where did you get it?

I had the tank built with the overflow in the center so the tank could be viewed from all four sides. I had a friend build the tank for me.

Huh. I can imagine it is pretty hard to cut a rectangle in the middle of a piece of glass. I don't even know how you would do it.

 

Can't wait to see it come to fruition.

Tank is acrylic. You can not cut a rectangle in glass. Well you can try but will end up with many pieces :laugh: I used to work at a glass shop many years ago and the only way to get a hole is to drill.

 

What stand are you going with? Tall short? Looks almost the same as Jasons tank at OIAB.

The only way I could come up with is use a grinder for the edges and file it from there. Acrylic makes more sense.

What do you plan to do for the stand? Custom build it? It sounds like you have a plan.
