After 2 previous attempts to get tank with reasonable quality, I finally ordered form Miracles 150G tank 72x27x19H. No scratches, no bubbles in the joins, panels are leveled, silicon job is perfect. Despite edges not grounded, the polishing is perfect and I do not need to use sandpaper to polish it, like in previous attempts.

This tank looks like the custom tank, but by my request it was made from the standard stock tank 150G - 72x18x27H.
27" high is not good for my short hands and 18" depth is not enough for the reef tank.
I just asked to put 27" panel on the bottom when they will assembly "standard tank" and cut all other panels to 18".
I was told that they will not be able to put commercial quality trim on the top.
I did not want trim on the top and I also did not want rimless. Derek offered me to make Eurobrace from the pieces left over, after they will cut 3 remaining 27" panels to 18".
I did not argue, since I liked the idea.
Overflow box made by myself ($25)
Hangers for the light are electrician pipe from Homedepot ($10)
Rent the tool to bend pipes ($15). I screwed 2 pipes before I made 2 symmetric pieces, since I had no clue how to use this tool.

and finally here we go

You should have bought a bigger tank!!! Ha...joking

I really need to come see this tank it looks amazing Greg!
The idea with the eurobrace and the trim is an amazing idea and it looks like pure sex.

If James Brown and Angelina Jolie had sex and had a baby....this is what it would look like. Nothing but pure sexyness.

PM when you're ready to sell this one!!! =P

Congrats Greg. I told you the Miracles tanks are worth every penny.

I see its in the living room so just curious if you're going with the Herbie or Bean Animal method?

Thanks Paul, I remember and you were right. it is the same as to compare 20 years old Toyota and new Mercedes.
This is not future place for this tank. I just put it for now in perpendicular to the beams for time being. It is going to replace old tank, but also in the living room

I will use Durso overflow (probably it is the same as Herbie). I made this type in 3 tanks and all were dead silent. You sit 2' from the tank and hear nothing (but do not forget that my sump is in the basement)
