Do we have any aquariums like this in the US?
 
The ADA Wild Glass aquarium is made out of high-quality glass and is rimless. It is made for ADA by Mr. Wild in Germany. Anyone know of anything similar in the US?

I have never seen anything like it, but would love to!

The closest I have seen are these tanks. not personally though. Aparently, they were imported semi-locally some time ago, but havent seen them :( Both are 3 piece and rimless with no front verticle seams

No, I haven't Art. I saw in their wholesale catalog that Oceanic makes rimless tanks, but I've never seen one of them myself. DIY may be your best bet for a tank like that.

Best,
Phil

Contact any place that makes tanks, they can do you up polished edges, beveled or anything. They are are rimless afterall untill they put a rim on!

Seamless Tank
 
The closest I've seen is the Via-aqua seamless tanks. There's some info here:

I believe the rim is required for stability on most tanks. It seems like completely rimless would only work in small and/or overbuilt tanks.

Hi Stevenl,

nice tank! i have some questions about tank. can you answer for me. i really appreciated your help. where did you get yours? do they ship to U.S.? what size do they have? can they use clear silicon glue? im looking for less than 5.5 gallon tank.

thanks,

Tim

Normal glass has a green tint to it. High quality glass has the same clarity as acrylic. You could really see the difference if you put one of each next to each other. Why not get a topless acrylic tank? I wonder how much or if they even would make an acrylic tank at tap plastics.

There are a few places that will build a tank with "High Quality" or Starphire glass. I've looked into having a tank built to my specs. It's certainly not inexpensive. The marine reef guys get a lot of tanks built, their forums, exp ReefCentral has a good bit of info. If ya'll want I can post what I have learned about having tanks built.
