    Looking at upgrading and going to a 180 gallon setup. Looking for recommendation on tank/stand manufacturers. Dimensions will be standard 24x24x72. Would like it to be rimless with starphire glass.

    Any help appreciated.

    I would contact neptunes and aquatic collection. They can get you quotes

    Yeah I don't think there are any "standard" rimless tanks at that size out there, that alone will probably double the cost of the tank though due to additional thickness of glass required. I will say if you want a nice 96x24x24 Neptune has one for sale with stand and everything :D Is money an object? Because there are multiple of custom tank designers that I could post but all of them are too rich for my blood for tank like that.

    If you like clean modern look, go for the Elos 200XL!

    www.customaquariums.com has tons of semi-custom sizes.
    No idea if they are good or not though.

    Crystal Dynamics (through Neptunes) would be a good start.

    +1 on Rimless at that size being THICK glass. At least 3/4, or expect scary bowing.
    Cost, but also the thick glass cuts visibility a bit.
    Is rimless a must-have?
    You will probably end up with a screen over the tank anyway, so a simple glass cross-brace is not so bad.

    Get external overflow setup for bean animal w 3 drain holes while you're at it, that's the best!

    Thanks for all the recommendations everyone!!! Ill be going to Neptunes soon and see what they can order as well. Cost is always a consideration but I understand that a tank this size will be very expensive especially with the Starphire glass. Companies like Reef Savvy quote approx 3500 before freight with a phantom bottom and external ghost overflow. Euro bracing is a possibility as well but trying to keep it as clean as possible. Thanks again

    Neptune JUST (as in this afternoon) received a brand new 72/24/24 CDA with ghost overflow!


    Price include the overflow.

    It's gorgeous! They added corner reinforcements and it really adds to the look!
