    Will jy die tank self bou? Ek het my glas by Atlantic glass gekoop, hulle is in commercial road. Of Ek kan vir jou n kontak nommer gee van iemand wat dit Sal bou vir jou. Hull het n vriend van my n prys geggee van R880 voledig gebou , met bracing ends polystyrene ends avgelewer. Die tenk se mates was 1000 x500 x500.

    Hi lawrence, kan jy asb net jou vraag in engels ook vra, hier is BAIE meer engels as afrikaanse lede op MASA. Jyt n beter kans om n goeie antwoord & goeie raad ook te kry.
    @Kevin34PE, R880 for that size tank sound a bit unrealistic. You wont even buy the glass for that tank (even if you cut it yourself) at 880. Unless he did him a huge favour... Just make sure bud, sounds a but low...
    You sure it wasnt a secondhand?

    Hi visser, yes im sure. It is a new tank built to that size. The guy who did the quote has a business building tanks. He is busy resizing mine now at the moment cos I found my tank a bit unmanageable. So im going shallower and narrower now.

    Hi Kevin, can you please forward the telephone number of the person building tanks? Dorry yes I am going to try and build it on my own, but if I get someone that can do it for cheaper I would reconsider. Will put photos on when finished.

    Well, then he is extremely well priced! Must be getting glass at rock bottom prices...
    Will you upload a pic of your new tank when he is done @Kevin34PE?

    I am not a expert on glass and the thickness, sounds thin for me. Hope no kiddies going to play near the tank, and careful when working with your live rock.

    The glass I Bart for my dividers in my sump cost me more than that. Imo I would go with the tank from watermark cos it's professionaly built, will look good, and be alto safer.
