    I have no idea what's the cost. Ill give that place a call to find out
    Or I may just have to find some one that builds tanks at reasonable prices

    *tank. 2200x600x1000(h)

    a tank of this size definatley needs to be constructed of 19mm glass. And properly at that.

    for what size tank?
    8mm and some places do carry that. Abovve 10mm all companies can order your glass, obvious at a handling charge extra.

    If in centurion, let Dorry Pets order for you from Rene Turck
    Else, Pet Stop can also help you out.
    Look in the sponsors area for contact info.
