The "DE LA CRUZ" custom aquarium tank.
This tank will measure 120L" x 36D" x 31H"
It will hold approximately 580 gallons.
Material thickness is 1-1/4"
Here is the raw material.
Still in the box!

Added an end panel.
Close up of glue joint on second end panel.
Added a strip of reinforcing material in the corner.
Yes, it's bullet-resistant material!
Protect your fish from stray gunfire with a bullet-resistant tank from San Diego Plastics! Hahaha!
Added another long panel. That's just a brace in the middle.
Another closeup of a new glue joint (before finishing).
Once the four panels are joined, flipping it over becomes a job for the hoist. On a tank this size, you don't want to try to muscle it around by hand. The forklift and hoist are our robust friends.
Getting ready to install the prefilter.
