    I like the big guys. my tanks are: 120gal,480gal.110gal.270gal.240gal.60gal,20gal. I recently got an arapima about 18" long. I'll be looking towards a bigger tank, like about 20'x20'x30"or so deep. I'll keep the tank site page on my favorites list.

    oh man -- I came on here just look up stuff about fish. But after clicking around, I've decided I'm going to have to build my own tank.

    Already starting the new budget.

    Looks Fun!!!!!
    House is being built. More importantly, its tanks are being planned.

    Has anyone validated the accuracy of this? It seems like its a bit off.

    This calculator seems to be specifially for full acrylic aquarium builds, where cemented edges is part of the variables...

    Or, according to this thing, I needed a 4.5 in thick sheet to just serve as a plain freestanding window on my DIY build.
    Everyone is either wrong, or labeled as insane.
