Exactly what I have in mind building own aquarium. It's a lot cheaper building your own aquarium. There is online calculator to determine the glass size.

Do you ask the factory to precut the glass or your cut it yourself?

How do you plan to do the cycle? Care to share your method cycling the tank? Thank you

Erm... actually price doesn't have much difference,
I'm building the tank by myself because I don't really know how to draw,
and I have to make sure the UGF board fit into the tank. biggrin.gif

Glass is precut by factory due to my lousy glass cutting skill... haha:sweat: sweat.gif
I follow SL Aqua way, adding their magic powder enzyme & Purify bacteria, cycle period is about 1 month.

Never used that before..
this is one of the most trending method Taiwan breeders are using.. smile.gif
with fast discharge I'll only need to connect pipe, then turn on valve to let dirty water flow out of the tank,
then water will flow down from storage tank by itself.

Can I know where you bought this and the price?


Looks like something I'd want to have in my sump tank.

Great setup by the way. If I had space, I'd do something like this too.

Kudos!
