Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      The price quote at a local glass store was ridiculous, so can lowes and homedepot cut it? (have you had them cut it?)

      The glass will be 3/8"

      I know they'll cut the glass that they have in store, but I don't know if you can bring in your own glass...

      they wont cut glass you don't buy there in case they break it. The glass they sell has a very low safety factor. Most you can't even use for a window or a shelf. Save yourself the money in the long run and pay the glass shop to cut it for you.

      I went today, and mine can't. But I also stopped at a glass store and there I ordered my 3/8" glass. Due in a week.

      Also got materials for the simple stand, and sealing/caulking the tank.

      psh forget cutting

      order 1.5" thick 4x8's and build a 4x8x8.
      cmon you know you want to.

      lol yeah better just ahve them cut it, may seem expensive but it's much cheaper than breaking the first and havign to order another and have them cut it anyway.

      Just have the glass shop cut it. Would you really trust the guy at Lowe's or Home Depot cut your glass?
