    My name is Daniel Proudfoot, I am a custom acrylic fabricator here in southern California.

    When I was younger my dad had a 120 gallon and a 150 gallon saltwater aquarium and always was intrigued with them. this year I finally went out and bought a 37 gallon bow front glass tank for myself. For now its hosting one porcupine puffer, one gold stripe maroon clown fish, one bta and 2 pom pom crabs. Three blue/green reef chromis and 2 banded throchus snails are on there way from live Aquaria this coming week.

    I'm also in the process of building myself a acrylic tank to be my main display tank. Still playing with numbers and thickness of acrylic before I make any purchases. estimating my size to accommodate 90 to 110 gallons.

    we have multiple departments ranging from fully custom displays for trade shows to museums. sterilizing stands for medical equipment. diffusers for lighting. aquariums. rigid cases with foam inserts for transporting equipment. Pretty much we make anything that deals with plastics in sheet form ranging from 1/16" thick up to 3" or 4" thick sheets.
