Hello, I'm hoping for a good recommendation on where to get a custom tank built.  I know there are a few places that do this but maybe some are better than others.  The tank will be 20 feet long, 3.5 feet wide, and 3 feet deep.  If you are a person or business that makes tanks, please give me a ball park estimate of what this might cost.  I'm open to either acrylic or glass.  

Thanks in advance for your help!

Any of the stores can have one built for you. OCD reefs, Aquatic Dreams are two of my favorite. And Eric at Aquarium Creations builds them here in the valley.

Hello mate,

I got myself a custom aquarium (tho it was way smaller than what you have in mind) from a company Living Colors, there are many good companies tho, so you should call them up and ask for quotes, you would be surprised by how much the prices can differ. Cheers

i would suggest either OCD or Aquatic Dreams  they have experience with getting large tanks like this ordered and installed.  Delivery of a 20 foot tank is no joke, so i would highly suggest one of the pros i mentioned above.

Do be careful when you look at online stores. I have build stands for many different manufactures. If a tank is way cheaper than others then run far far away. There are some very cheap scary tanks built out there. I went local to have my 400g built. You cant go wrong with local service and warranty.

When going for a massive, costly tank, I think having local support would be priceless.
