    Default Custom 49 gallon tank

    so i have a new project i am starting on.
    Getting sick of my little 29gal so i thought i would build myself a 49gal tank from scratch...
    the tank will be 31 inch long 19 1/2 inch wide and 20 inches tall.
    . it may take me a week to finish this tank...

    Thanks.. I was nervous about making my own glass tank but I am confident it will be o.k. I put lots of RTV103 in there and I have the top and bottom supports so I think were safe..
    We've been thinking about this tank for over a year and finally pulling the trigger.

    Looking killer bro, way to yank up the skirt and go for it. LOL Always got respect for those with the ca-hones to build the tank!! Being only 20" tall why not go rimless? Looks like you have the glass to Euro brace it.
