Real Monster Tanks on a budget

So I was looking far ahead to my fishroom in the garage and was thinking of tubs sitting on the floor rather than tanks on the floor as you can't see the fish on the lower tier that well anyway. As you know, you start looking at one thing, then jump to another, and before you know it you're looking at something you couldn't possibly use. (Not that that is a dealbreaker...) Anyways, these are the sites I came across that have some very useful tanks from reasonable sizes all the way up to... well... you know.


Dolphin Fiberglass Products, Inc. - Tanks, Ponds, Aquariums, Aquaculture
Aquaculture Tanks for Fish, Filters, Lids, Pipes, Floors, More 916-383-9012
Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems
Water Management Technologies, Inc. - Products - Fiberglass Reinforced Polyester Tanks

I was thinking along the lines of a circular tub in the 5' or 6' diameter range with a viewing window for things like balasharks, silver dollars, giant danios and other large fast moving fish. I'll keep dreaming...

Re: Real Monster Tanks on a budget

"Monster tanks" and "budget" dont really go together. But i like what your thinking of, i do that all the time. When i start thinking like that my mom usually says no before i even say what i was thinking of. She knows me so well

lol now now, food is "healthy" at school now. Pigeon isn't healthy
if it's dry let it die,if it's wet make it a pet!!
