  Custom Aquarium Tanks

In addition to the branded tanks we stock, we also manufacture glass aquarium tanks here onsite in our workshop facility; we have many years of experience in aquarium manufacture.

The cost of glass is very variable and affects our tank prices, so please call or email if you would like a quote for a specific tank size.

When purchasing any aquarium tank, be sure to check the glass thickness used, this is critical to the strength of the tank.

The standard glass thickness we use for smaller tanks is 6mm. As a general rule, tanks taller than 18" (46cm) are manufactured in 10mm glass. In addition, tanks with a base width (front-to-back) of 15" (38cm) or more will have a 10mm glass base.

Please note that the highest we can manufacture tanks in 10mm glass is 24-26" (60-65cm).

Our glass tanks cannot be supplied by courier delivery, and are only available by collection, or delivery with our own truck within the mainland UK - please contact us with your postcode for a quote.

We also supply custom made aquarium cabinets and vivariums, see Gallery for some examples.
