Contact Mang Ramon. He is the resident tank maker here in RP. heheh! I think his number is somewhere in the general discussion section.

2. go for euro bracing
3. insist on a very reliable tank maker (search for "Mang Ramon" in this forum and his contact info)
4. make sure that the sealants seal properly before you put water in
5. if you can make it longer and then the height lower, that would be best since you don't need to spend more on extra powerful lights (such as MH), your width is basic miminum
6. ensure you have a reliable cab maker (search for "Vin" in this forum and his contact info)
7. location, location, location --- map and visualize where you want to put your tank, check for vicinity of nearest window, does sunlight hit that area directly, do you electrical outlets conveniently near it, etc
8. calculate in advance your electrical consumption --- remember, a bigger tank at the end of the day, will cost more to operate
9. plan ahead on what kind of biotape you are targetting
10. be patient and do a lot of research more... :roll:



Are the people you mentioned here as "resource" persons in setting-up a big aquarium still your personal choice for guys like me who want to begin our own tank? Thanks in advance!

Hindi lang pala ako nagiisa sa ganyang problema. Hindi naman kontra misis ko pero yaw nya ng malaking tank. Well siguro ok na rin blessing in disguise na may kumokontra. Kasi exponential ang gastos ng ng malalaking marine tank eh. Hindi tulad ng freshwater.
