Default Rimless All glass tank - Yoo hoo!!

Tex Guy and I were looking for a new tank. (He's finally hooked again! Yeah!!) I went online searching for all glass rimless tanks. I remembered the one that was sold at the AGA conference. Tried to find that company. Anyway.... my search lead me to fishtank.com. They sell rimless in several sizes. They also said they can custom make any size for you. Tex Guy decided on a 24" X 24" X 20H" He's getting star glass on 3 sides!! He's going all the way!! It'll be the nicest tank we have. It'll be somewhere less than 60gal. 24"H is 60 gal. He's already ordered a TEK light and a canister filter. He was gonna do a rack of 10gs but decided on this. I think he's gonna go high tech but not sure he has decided. I've already begun collecting some plants for him. So exciting!!!


Anyway.... if you are looking for an all glass rimless tank give them a call. They say on their site they won't make them in glass but it depends on your location. You have to call or email and find out. We will be meeting their truck Dec 14 in a parking lot somewhere in Dallas. (Sounds like a story I once read on this forum!!) You can choose regular glass or star glass, clear or black silicone. How nice!

Rimless add such beauty. Can't wait to see it. I'll be checking out the site later and figuring where else I could possibly fit another aquarium

That sounds like a sweet tank.

I have also heard about the tank truck. I read a journal somewhere about a guy that bought one of these tanks and picked it up at one of these meeting spots. The cops were called because some people thought it looked a little shady. A bunch of people unloading large glass tanks off a back of a truck in some random parking lot.

Tex Gal when I tried that URL I got this:

http://www.fishtank.com/

Do you have a different URL for the company.

glasscages.com is another outfit that makes custom tanks and is closer to my neck of the woods.
I didnt get glass from them, but I did get several acrylic cubes made about a year ago which were 24x24x17 tall. They hold about 40Gallons.

for the plants I keep, shallow works out better and I really like the 24x24 footprint.
Multiples of that are my favorite tank shape, especially when working with Metal Halide pendants.
