    Hi, is there someone who builds custom tanks? I am looking for a tank with the following dimensions. L X W X H 710 X 420 X 450 with 6mm glass, 2 holes drilled in the back corners of the tank for 20mm pipe and a wier at the back over 1 of the holes. If anyone can help I will be very happy.

    The two 20mm holes might be too small. Normally overflows uses 50mm. Less change to get blocked.

    Maybe ask Idol Marine
    Or ask Lanzo. One of his displays was custom build recently and looks good. Maybe he can refer you.

    Yip, try Idol Marine in JHB, or Dorry Pets (Lanzo) or Moolis (Pet Stop) in Pretoria.

    Hi, I manage to get a tank, but with no holes, if anyone can help in drilling the holes or where I can buy 50mm bits to drill glass, that would be great.

    Speak to Adrian at Idol marine, they build stunning tanks and they use black silicone, it makes the tanks looks even more special.
