    Hi Reefers

    Ever wanted a really large aquarium but were put off at the high price tag?

    We have the deal of a lifetime...

    A client of ours has purchased acrylic panels for an aquarium we were going to install but has now decided to go bigger...the aquarium was going to be 3m long by 1.280 wide by 1m high.

    As a result we have agreed to sell the acrylic for the client at below our cost....:m12:

    The pieces are wrapped straight from the factory and brand new....

    They are

    2 pieces of 3m long by 1m high (These were going to be the front and back panels) 25mm thick

    1 piece of 1.280m long by 1m high (This was going to be the one side panel) 25mm

    What you need to do to construct your dream aquarium

    This is what we are doing for our client
    Cast a concrete stand/base....fibreglass it...
    Cast a concrete side wall to make the one side...fibreglass it
    Glue the three acrylic panels together
    Set this in a frame on the base and side wall

    The end result is an aquarium that is 3m long by 1.280m wide by 1m high

    These 3 acrylic panels would retail for around R50 000....

    We are selling them all for R22 000!!!!:thumbup:

    Its a tank that you basically build into your house.

    You could buy the Base and other short side made from acrylic and then you would not need to build the Base and one short side from concrete.....

    So how big does the client want his tank if this is too small? I would love to see that build.

    Cut the panels and make a 1500 x 1000 x 1000 tank! Cut it length wise and have a 3000 x 1000 x 500 tank! If only I had the cash.
