    Ok so I asked for a quote on an acrylic tank of this size from ATM and got a personal response from Wade saying that this tank would be $21,500 plus crate and shipping.

    ...which makes you wonder if ATM even built it for "well over $10,000 new".

    well I would think their prices have inflated over the last two years due to the show, supply and demand Wink

    I'm not a big fan of theirs. Some of their tanks are just.... Not the best. Like the skate board ramp. But I would use a tank built from them. A normal tank at least.

    IF I could find someone willing to cut it down to 3 feet deep, I'd take it. Smile

    I'll be hoem nextw eek, maybe time for a little trip. Just wonder what the boss/wife will say.

    A 4 foot tall tank is a serious tank to try and clean. I don't mind the 4 foot width as that is what I want.

    The Boss says you guys are vicarouslay (sp) trying to live your dream tank thru me. Razz

    I've got the room. So if you guys fund it, I'll get the tank and display it for you all. You guys will have to fund it and help me keep it clean. It could be our club/community tank. Laughing

    I'm sure you could get the tank cheaper than advertised, not too many people are looking for a tank that size. I bet jimmy could cit it down for you, straight edge and a circular saw Smile might not be worth the trouble though.
