Looking at doing a custom acrylic tank on a future build, but having a doozy of a time finding tank builders online...

Those of you with custom acrylic tanks (that you're happy with) - who did you use? (website would also be helpful!)

Acrylic has gone up quite a bit in price lately. More demand for COVID related safety shields I'd imagine. Have been very happy with my tank (now over 3 years old).

I built acrylic tanks for over 30 years up to 16' long. Send me a request via PM and I can get a quote together for you. You could check with Reynolds in Colorado for a quote if you are looking for a tank over 1000 gallons.

After doing a lot of research I went with Midwest Custom for my tank, stand w/canopy. Great quality and reasonably priced. Took a bit longer that expected. Midwest is a small mfg and a big job in NY city and the catch up added about a month to my job. Very pleased with the final product and shipment prep.

I'm expecting my custom acrylic tank any day now.... (sorry, can't say that with a straight face....)
I placed my order September 4th. I keep hearing soon....
My tank is from Americanaquariums.com in Pennsylvania.
The process has been long but I'm hopeful it will be here this month.

Oh dear ... I just ordered one from them. Should I treat the 10–12 weeks of lead time with some skepticism?

Tiny little thing ..... 63” x 20” x 24”. There are, BTW, at least three companies that use some variation of ‘American aquarium’.
