So, I'm looking for a very specific tank - a 50-55gallon corner (bowfront) tank for my new apartment, however, if I can find them online - they are way way too expensive to me - upwards of 3-400 bucks just for the tank and I can't find one used anywhere - (NY area).

Now I'm thinkin, has anyone tried to make their own tank before? I know its relatively not THAT difficult to seal a tank with silicon glue.

I guess my question is - has anyone tried this? Think it would be less expensive to make your own tank (provided you do it correctly)?

Just wanted some feedback, even if its someone saying "you're crazy".

This btw, is really a last resort. No, I don't technically know anyone yet to get the bowed front... however, maybe that's not tooooo hard.

The bottom plate can be done from a circle piece, just measuring the diameter and cutting along that, then again, I've got no experiance.

haha, my girlfriend works at a local petsmart, maybe i'll check there again or have them order something special for me :)
