Recipe for a quarantine tank: 5-15gal aquarium, no substrate, a heater that can heat the tank to 86F, "lights should be turned off", one - two mesh bags of biological medium, two small sponge filters, an air pump running into the tank powering the sponge filter. Lid is optional but you should be able to cover most of the tank to prevent fish from jumping out.

Tank gets delivered and I inspect for cracks and or damage prior to signing for tank. I never said this wouldnt be a lengthy journal . Upon close inspection the tank ends up being tip-top with no damage. I built a custom six wheel dolly to move the tank around on, this thing weighs 400+ lbs.

155 Glass Custom Cages framed with custom lids.

Rear panel had a scratch before it was finished and they ended up using what they had to replace it , which was only “ultra clear glass”. I will post a few more pics that illustrate the workmanship and quality of this tank. Even the black silicon is a site to see! I am very pleased with CustomCages.com and glad I spent the money and took my time and designed it, there’s just no way I could have DIY’d to this level of workmanship. These people are a great team to work with.
