The purpose of this page is to document the construction of a custom aquarium tank for a gentleman named Terrence who lives in Hong Kong.
San Diego Plastics will be adding pictures as the work progresses. This will allow Terrence to see his tank as it is being built.
It will also allow other people to see the craftsmanship and pride that our aquarium tank fabricator Joel Johnson puts into each custom tank he fabricates.
