    Glad to hear all the fish are doing well. They are some of the nicest cichlids I've ever seen!
    Thanks and I hope you do get the chance yourself one day.

    Try looking up glass thickness calculators. There is a good one by Rivermud.

    both your craftsmanship and your selection of fish cannot be beat.

    your tank is the main reason i decided to buy a used 560gal acriylic tank (that was in bad shape)and fix it up to put sa/ca cichlids in it.
    I know its not as DIY as yours but im not that confident in my abilitys to seal the glass so this was the next best thing.

    once again great job on the tank and detailed explaination on how it was built!!!
    Cheers. The 560 sounds like an interesting project.

    I have read your build thread from start to finish a few times. This is a great idea to put it into a new thread without all the extra stuff. Thank you for doing this. Your build is one of the tanks that inspires me to build my own.

    nice build, i found the build video on youtube few days back and just today realized ur on this site . anyways, im building a 350ish gallon and have been trying to follow ur process on the inside framing. http://www.monsterfishkeepers.com/fo...d.php?t=329569 is my thread. it'll be a while before its done. im going to put 2 layers of fiberglass over the whole thing, inside and out, and im hoping between the wood and fiberglass everything is stong enough. also painting mine black inside and out . lemme know what u think, again very impressive build.

    Truly inspires me to try my hand at building a tank of this magnitude. I love your thread and will be using it to try my luck at something around this size. Thanks

    Hi there GT, I am wanting some info and further detail about the front framing and how and where the glass sits.
    I am planning a 12'x6'x4' ply tank to replace my 8'x30"x4' 500g tank and the only thing I can not really get a grasp on is the window framing.
    Your tank is ajust fantastic and very inspirational, it makes want to dream big!
    Monster Fish species-P.Dovii, C.Temensis, C. Monoculus, B. Microlepis, C. Chitala, P. Gibbiceps, P. Fasciatum, A. Adonis, P. Hypophthalmus, S. Insignis .
    Monster Tanks-500g, 260g, 2x180g, 55g.
