Extremely Unique Aquarium available for half the cost of a brand new tank of this design that would cost around $12K
This aquarium has been used in a few company displays for public events. It has scratches on the acrylic that can be buffed out with an acrylic polishing kit and tools. I am selling it at this cost because the buyer will be responsible for buffing any scratches or refurbishing.
It has two overflow columns for the filtration aspect and this tank is drilled to accept bulkheads to connect the filtration / water flow components. Each overflow also has a dry raceway for electrical cords, etc. to create a seamless look.
The tank is 6ft. in length with each cube end being 28″square. The arch in the center is approx. 2ft in width. If the tankwas set-up where on the stands stands and raised on a platform – most people could actually walk underneath the aquarium. The stands are 4ft. in height and 28”square. The powder coat on the stands is worn in some spots and there is some rust on the stands that can be cleaned up.
Shipped in a crate built for it’s transport using freight services. Shipped in the continental USA only.

This is a timber and fiberglass aquarium with two glass sides. Footprint of the tank is 4 feet deep by 8 feet long (49″x97″) and it is 32″ tall so that it will fit through a normal doorway if turned sideways. About 1 foot at one end of the tank is divided off for use as an in-tank filter so that no external filtration is needed. This divider could be removed if you want the extra space for fish however.
I built this custom piece several years ago and it has been set up with a lone occupant for nearly 3 years now. Unfortunately it takes up too much space for me and I’m trying to down size. The outside wood grain, and is finished with black stain and polyurethane so it would look nice in any room that was large enough for it to fit nicely. The photos are not of excellent quality as unfortunately it’s in my garage where the lighting is poor and it’s difficult to get great photos – you can get a rough idea though. I am happy to dig up more photos and/or answer specific questions – please contact me with questions.
I am located in Fort St John, BC, but I will be travelling to Edmonton on Dec 20 or 21, and I can bring this tank with me at that time if I find a buyer in Edmonton or Calgary. I am asking $1000 based on me bringing the tank to Edmonton. There is easily $1000 in materials in the tank, plus it will be a fairly significant pain for me to transport it. If buyer wants to work out some arrangements that make it easier to get out of my garage and into your hands, I am more than happy to come down on the price. I also have the sand, filter media and so on that I’m using with the tank. I just discovered that the 5 heaters I use to heat it have been recalled though so you may want to come up with your own temperature control scheme. Right now it is -1C in my garage and with 800watts of heaters in the tank it stays at 76F quite easily. If you keep this guy indoors it will require much less than that to heat.
One last thing – the tank currently has a 30-32″ Tiger Shovel Nosed catfish in there. I can either include him with the tank or relocate him to another one of my tanks, but I much prefer that he go with the tank. If you are prepared to care for an animal like this, he’s all yours – just don’t plan on keeping anything with him as his last meal was a full grown Oscar that I thought was too big for him to hurt.
560 gallon acrylic fish aquarium
Up for sell is a 560 gallon acrylic fish aquarium with an acrylic 100 gallon sump below. I am relisting do to a ebay flake that comitted to the ebay purchase but backed out. Please don’t waste my time. This is not a cheap hobby and this was not a cheap tank to build. The acrylic tank dimentions are 96″x36″x36″. The stand is made of 2×3 steel and wrappend in wood painted black. The stand and aquarium heigth combined is a whopping 93″ tall, length is 99.5″ and width is 39.5″. I have invested a lot of time and money and it could be yours for a fraction of the price. If you have owned an aquarium you know how expensive things are so you will appreciate the low reserve I am offering. Listed below is everything that goes with the tank. Keep in mind, this is a complete system, everything goes. All you need is a big enough space and a crew of friends to help move this into your home. Keep in mind it will take 5 to6 guys to haul this tank out at the buyers responibility. The tank is 5 years old. You have to see this aquarium to really appreciate the size and quality. Its jaw dropping for anyone seeing it when stopping by or especially for the 1st time. They just stare at it for hours. Everything works perfectly except the chiller. It still turns on but doesn’t keep the water cool because it needs a recharge. We are down sizing because 2 babies are now my priority, diapers and formula, go figure. Local pickup only. I can sell the fish seperatlly and drop the price $500 if interested.
