    Hi All,
    New to the area and looking for a custom stand builder. Any go-to shops in the bay area?

    Thanks,

    Neptune Aquatics has a custom stand shop.

    They do nice work. My stand is from them and I’m very happy with it.

    You'll have to go in no number for them.

    Well there is one -- they just don't answer it.

    You can send Neptunes a message on their website.
    Probably best for a stand, since you can write down all dimensions and so on.
    They have been responsive for me, although not instantly.

    I was able to get in contact with Neptune, but unfortunately they are no longer doing custom stands. They've referred me to Crystal Dynamic Aquariums.

    Haven't heard back from CDA. In the meantime I'm talking with Elos and some local bespoke furniture makers. Will likely go one of those routes. We'll see... no rush and taking my time.

    Trent at CDA is a good guy and they do make great stands, but his communication is a bit spotty at times. Just keep trying him.
