The old frame surrounding this hang on the wall tank is thick and heavy stainless steel sheet. I am looking for someone that can help me make a lightweight frame from aluminum sheet that retains the look and feel of the stainless steel.

It was a horrible mess.
Look at the upper left corner. Those scratches were deep and extended all across the entire front panel.
Maintenance was a nightmare, even for a freshwater tank.
The new frame will be removable to allow total access for reef aquarium maintenance.

When completed, it will be a real beauty for 10 years to come.Smile


<Edit> Thanks BuilderofDreams. Sounds like your specialty is to preserve the old look. That is exactly what I want, but the function must be greatly improved, hence the lighter weight and easy removal by hanging it on the wall instead of the tank.
