120"x40"x28" Tank Build
#1
So it's official!  My new tank will be a 10 ft x 40"x28" tall 580 gallon. After harassing the good people at Sabic plastics In Dartmouth I've got the pieces for this tank showing up this week. The sheets are a whopping 120x80"X1" thick. I got them to split the sheet into 3 - 26 1/2 strips. One piece for each side and I'll cut the ends outa the other strip. Then for the bottom I bought a 4x8 sheet of 3/4 which I will cut and cement a piece to make the bottom. The bracing on the top will be made out of 3/4 as well. That's the plan. I'll take pics once I get materials this week!

Lol. Being able to build tanks is a curse and a blessing at the same time. I can't believe I'm building one this big. Hopefully this is it.... For a few years lol

If I had your house I'd have a 12 ft for sure but I think this tank is going to be it for a long long time lol
