CUSTOM AQUARIUM BUILDS
If you can imagine it. We can build it.
Custom Tank Builds
The lead time on custom jobs vary with each configuration but are generally from 4 to 8 weeks. Every aquarium demonstrates our experience and pride in workmanship, a quality product is assured and warranted. Our experts can assist you with design advice for, bracing options or custom filtration to ensure peak performance.
At Miracles, we like to do the job right. We consult with our engineer on custom tanks to ensure that the weight and water pressures are properly calculated so the appropriate glass thickness is always used.
Why purchase a standard aquarium you have to fit into your decor? Design a custom aquarium system and create something uniquely your own.
PLACING YOUR ORDER
Make sure you know the dimensions of the tank you want, we can cut glass to your specification but standard sizes will be more cost effective. If you need holes drilled for drains or return lines, work out where you want them, internal or external overflow option. Do you want STARPHIRE® glass and if so which sides .
If you have a design drawing it will speed up the process. It does not need to be fancy, just something with your tank dimensions and hole or baffle locations.
