  • some custom work

    Hi all,

    I wanted to share a bit of some custom work ive been doing for a few clients.

    The first is a stand for a fellow zeo user and buddy.
    375 gallon steel stand (will have cabinetry around it)

    You can see his thread on the "other board" under large reef tanks ...screen name "Reefboy1"

    The next is a custom stand , tank , and sump for our importer -Captive Oceans, and the upcoming Chicago show.
    Stand front :

    Stand back :

    Tank being built - 36X36X20" acrylic

    Tank ready for final polish:

    Sump work being done by one of my workers:


    And last............
    "Big Red"
    Steel stand for custom 600 gallon!

    Greg, what a coincendence! I am in search for a local welder to create my new stand for me. I will also design out a stand with a viewable underside to it (no equipment). Except the steel will be hidden. Heck who knows.. maybe it would look cool with a nice setup underneath and a enclosed glass cover.

      Just curious... whats the going rate for that first stand? The only other concern I would have is getting that big stand in through the front door!

        That stand is screaming to have a Bubble King under it.

          Steve,





          What a co-inky dink its brite friggin fire engine red!!
          (BTW.........its a perfect color match)

          Edward,
          I dont discuss priceing on an open forum but, let me assure you...........steel price has gone up dramatically! (so has acrylic BTW)
          I know a guy here locally that did his homework and found a bunch of salvaged steel, and had a guy weld it up for him at a FRACTION of the cost of a new stand. It took him some time but he saved BIG.

            Greg, thanks for the tip! I didnt realize steel went up too! Are we running out of elements in this world or are people just getting greedy?

              That first stand pictured is sitting in my family room waiting for the tank. It is really an awesome job and it'll be ashame to cover it up with cabinetry (and my wife will miss using it to fold laundry).

              Greg does excellent work.

                    greg, i guess I better start building soon! Just did some research and you're right on target. Steel rose 20% from the end of last yr already and its continuing to rise. They state the supply & demand is out of balance is affecting this crisis.

                      Acrylic price increase = India


                      And the price of oil doesn't help much either.

                          Madison, you're right, that's good looking work. Hopefully my upcoming tank will be built to standards like that.

                            Chuck, i'm sure it will. Con is very talented as well.

                            Greg, I would love to see a top down shot of that sump. It looks like you did some neat designs with the baffles and different compartments.

                              Very nice work Greg. What type of top will go on the Big Red Stand. Also what are the dim. on the tubing (wall thickness)?
