    There's a company near you in Indy that builds tanks. DON'T USE HIM! He's a crook and never delivers. A local club member here in Atlanta had problems with him and ended up going with MRC. He got a 10'x5'x3', the acrylic used to make the tank has a 30yr warranty against yellowing. I helped him get the tank in the house and on the stand about a year and a half ago. Here's a shot of it outside. I'm guy guy on the far right and I'm 6'3". I can link the build thread of you'd like.[​IMG]

    Man. Your wife is a keeper ;) That tank is going to be so big you are going to need to bring in some sand for a beach, and of course a Tiki Bar.

    It’s right by my basement bar where it’ll be going in, I’ll get a pool table and a card table for the area next to it as well.

    But yeah I have some money to make haha!

    Well, I can find tons of 7-8 foot tanks, found a 10 footer in Texas from a member here 120x36x20 but 15 hour drive is more than I can handle! It was a nice offer. If it were taller I’d actually consider it, but not sure how I’d work out those logistics!

    Sorry, but taking a mile isnt an effective treatment for ich... but it might be manageable in a 10' tank :p

    Thanks, I texted him! I really appreciate it, this is very helpful! Anyone else finds this stuff let me know.

    I’m not sure the length on it but I think it may be ten! :)

    I remember back in the day there was something called crazedlist where you could search several craigslist at one time, I used to find all sorts of goodies that way. I always wanted a very specific car with specific trim, or some modification.

    They didn't have the dimensions listed, but I have a 7'/200g, so I think a 285 may be close to what you are looking for. If you get it and don't want to take the fish, live rock and coral, i could get you the info for the LFS that I think is the most amazing. It's a small store, but she is awesome!

    I may take a small bit of it as a finders fee too (I'd really pay you for some)

    Jason,
    Depending on where around Indy you are, I'm about and hour and a half north of you in Blackford county. (About half way between Ft Wayne and Indy) Anyway, I have a 75 gallon tank that would be perfect for your sump...it has some light scratches on the inside of the glass from where the kiddos got too happy with the mag float cleaner. It's just sitting empty right now, and for you, it could be had for the amazing price of driving up here and picking it up ! Depending on the day and time, I could probably even meet you somewhere. PM me and let me know.

    It's in Texas. I don't know the seller, just did a quick Craigslist search for you. Looks overpriced though at $7500 for tank and stand.

    Very deep sand bed :) that's how this gal ended up being able to work on her tank (at 5'3" no less)... oh, and a husband who is 6' and willing to help out. I'd say my sand bed is around 6" deep.
