I found a guy that builds aquariums however you want them. He is building a 24X12X24 for me for $35. He said he would build a 75 gallon for $65. I am picking up the tank Sunday I will let everyone know how it looks.

If he is the same guy from craigslist. I am going to have him make me some long rack system tanks. It will be easier because it will be one tank, but still have glass dividers making them several. He was going to do a 55G like that for only 45. Pretty good deal if ya ask me!

Okay I picked up my tank Sunday it looks good. Seals dont look as "pretty" as a tank from the store but once I put the water and fish in you cant tell. He is working on making some bigger tanks whe I was there he was working on a 150 and a 125. Really nice guy his name is Adam his number is 817-992-0779 tell him Steve sent you. It is worth the call I promise you.

Here are the pics, one is just a side view, 1 is of the brace on the top they are on both sides, one is of a seal close up I could have cleaned it up to make it look better but I thought of this after I put water in, the last one is of it setup

Very nice. That silicone is about par for the tanks I have. Doesn't seem to bad to me (at least in the pictures).

Now i'm gonna want a 60 to 90 cube... lol my wife thanks you (run if you get the chance to meet her as she'll want your head on a stick, j/k).
