Tank Frames for sale?

I am looking for a 2'X4' frame for a tank to replace. Is there a place I can buy these online?

I have not dealt with this place, but their name came up in a search. Get some other input before deciding which to do business with.

Thanks Diana. I see they don't offer the 4'x2' size. Its a 120g tank and they are mass produced so I thought frames would be easier to find. These guys have custom sizes but they are $43.00 each, lol, no thanks. What I am actually wanting them for is to make a 20" high 4'x2' tank so the lighting works better specifically for plants.

Most massed produced 4x2 today are Aqueons.
Mine are.
I had to go to 2 of my LFS to even be able to order and Aqueon 4x18(75g).
NOT cheap!
Having to do over I would not!

If I'm reading this right, you think that 40 bucks is too much for a tank frame? What are you expecting to pay for one?

I had a top trim split on a larger tank a couple years ago, and it was about 100 to replace and was going to take 4 or 5 months to get so I bought a new tank...

manufacturers don't provide replacement trim easily for some reason.

Yeah, its $43 each and im looking for six of them plus shipping(oversize 4'x2'). Im thinking for that rate I could make them out of metal where I work and not have to worry about them aging and breaking, lol.
