New tank!

Recommended Posts

Big thanks to the Co-op for all the info!! I am new to fish keeping and feel so much more confident! And I am fortunate to live close to the store!

Also, a big shoutout to Tap Plastics in Bellevue, Washington. I had them make a clear acrylic lid, as I didn’t want the risk of a glass one with my kitty, who is also very interested in fish. They mis-cut it twice but quickly redid it with not one word of argument, did so quickly and were very nice to deal with. I love the finished product, and you can’t beat their customer service!

Here are a few pics:

I had them make one that is hinged in the middle and with a cutout for my HOB filter; my husband notched a back corner for the heater cord. I’m very pleased. I judge customer service by how a company does when something isn’t right, not by if they make mistakes, and they earned top marks from me!  Let me know if you want photos.

JeffM, ask them to make it from polycarbonate, not acrylic. Mine started to sag a bit in the middle, and when my husband took it in today to have them make a reinforcement for it, they said it’s probably sagging because acrylic (which was my specification) absorbs some water. They suggested polycarbonate as it absorbs less. They are also making a new one from that, and only charging for materials!!

Welcome to the forum. I’m curious... What kind of harps? I have 3 luthier made Autoharps, crafted in Sea Tac Washington. When able to start traveling again, I want to make a pilgrimage to Aquarium Co-Op. How fortunate you are to live close by. I would be in there everyday.
