Making your own tank out of acrylic is a rewarding, cost saving, do-it-yourself project. It requires only a few essential tools and a good plastic supplier, the rest is up to you & your budget!
Step one is deciding what size tank to build, this will determine the thickness of acrylic sheet required. The height of the tank, not the gallons, determines the thickness required. You can have a huge shallow tank for a lot less money than a taller, smaller tank, something to consider if money is an issue.
