If this is your first attempt at making a tank maybe you should start considerably smaller and get some practice before dropping 500 bucks on glass and not knowing if you will be able to make it hold water.

Good luck though!

Christ almighty. Building tanks it NOT easy. What is this magic website?

If a tank (especially that size) isn't perfect the first time, there's every chance it will essentially just explode when you fill it.

It might be fine for month, or even years and then one day fill your house with 500 gallons of water.

Have you any idea how much damage 2+ tons of water can do?

Well do you really need a tank that size? Your fish would be PLENTY happy in a standard 150, which should be very easily found on craigslist etc. I'm picking one up locally for my C/SA Cichlids for £100 GBP.

Building tanks certainly does look easy, but I'm pretty sure it isn't. Otherwise somebody wouldn't charge 2500 for the labour of building one..
