Who makes large rimless tanks?


Besides Mr. Aqua who makes larger rimless tanks? I am curious as I want to window shop for after I buy my new house id like to have a show tank. I would love a custom low iron glass tank but dont want it to be too cost prohibitive.

Thanks!

How large is large?

Deep blue professional has a couple models. Not sure about the quality though. You could also hit up Miracles or Glass Cages.

ADA (120-P, 120-H, 180-P) , Elos (Pool 100, 120,160), custom builders to name a few, depends on how much you want to spend and how large.

I checked out glass cages and I read some poor reviews. Would love to hear of any updates

forgot to mention quality. it's amazing they even used starphire glass on the front panel with no extra charge. all edges are beveled and machine polished. One bead of silicone on the back corner 2 inches from the bottom was a bit off. However, it's covered with substrate and will never see it anyhow.

One thing to mention that I was a bit disappointed with, it does have a bottom rim, so it's not completely rimless like ADA tanks are.

All in all, I am pleased with the aquarium


P.S. Deep blue uses black silicone so if that's something your not into don't bother with them. Found this out the hard way and had to ship back on my dime.

I had a chance to check a Deep Blue tank at LFS and the silicon work was not that great - maybe one step above Aqeon ...
