    I'm looking for a suggestion for a new tank.

    Here are the requirements:

    - glass, 2'x2' footprint, less than 2' high (maybe even 18in shallow?)
    - preferably rimless
    - internal corner overflow
    - drilled for overflow, returns, etc
    - 2 (or 3) sides strafire glass (not a MUST but would be great)
    - preferably with a stand (1 door, will fit a 10, or 20h sump)

    An alternative configuration would be an all-in-one where the back of the tank will house a small skimmer, pump, etc. Kind of like Solano tanks do (but Solano is 20''x20'' and with the back of the tank used for equipment - it's too small.)

    Plan to use a single MH 150 or 250 14k light.

    Any ideas where to get it, or custom made? What would be the price range?
    I assume using starfire glass will make it really expensive?

    Maybe someone has a similar tank for sale?

    Have you gone to Neptune and seen the Oceanic Illuninata tanks? Not exactly cube but close with starfire.

    The only thing close to that is the cadlights artisan series cube.

    CADLights tank + stand would be $549.98 which is awesome!
    Any local stores carrying it?

    Illuminata is 3' wide, won't fit into the dedicated fish tank corner.

    I agree with Gomer that the Cadlights artisan series may be the way to go for you. It pretty much fits all the criteria you mentioned. I'm curious if there is a local dealer, though you could always take a road trip to LA and pick it up directly from them.

    I think Max can get those for you.

    Ah thanks Gresh, I'll check with Max.
    Any other suggestions?

    p.s. CADLights told me it's $150 for shipping.

    Not a bad deal on shipping if you ask me :)

    Looks like Max is not carrying any cadlights products. But he's thinking about it.

    Overall this is what I need. I have a skimmer/sump so all I'll need a 150w or 250w MH for it.

    Thanks for suggestions guys!

    I wonder where the one came from at BAYMAC then? I swear we had one raffled off??

    raffled off? The artisan 50g was just released this month (or was it another CAD tank?). Looks like some confusion is in the air.

    another CAD tank. Waterfall one maybe?

    I truly forget... I didn't win it :lol:
