I was looking into purchasing a AIO drop in kit and a Aqueon 75 gallon tank (might go custom tank route depending on the price). Which kit should I go with? I was originally going to get a Fiji cube kit but then I saw the tenecore kits and I’m not sure which to get. Would love any input from someone who has these kits. Thanks.

Also which companies do you guys like for building custom tanks?

Tenecor is on here. You might shoot them a PM?
I’m sure Tenecore would recommend theirs. I heard good things about them but I do like the design of the fijicube better because it comes already built. Just have to drop it in the tank and it’s less silicone work than the Tenecore. Just wanted to hear the public’s opinion before I pulled the trigger.

Tenecor's aren't difficult. I just built one of their DIY AIO the other day. Me and a friend built 2 and it took us about 45 minutes. That's just a 5 gallon AIO but it was a pile of acrylic to 2 full tanks and AIO chambers in 45 minutes.

I have no experience with Fiji though so I can't help you there.
