Where can I find Acrylic?

Post by chadmcd1 on Wed Jun 06, 2012 7:43 pm

I just purchased a rockin 95 gal tank and want to put a sump/refugium under it. But damn I sure am not buying one $$$$$$. Looking to make my own, or if anyone has a good one to sell let me know. Anyway, thinking of buying a 20-25 gal tank and use acrylic to make my own setup. Where is the best place to get some? Clear and black, or just black. I also heard there might be someone in Ely that makes tanks, anyone know who he is, if this is true? Thanks.

I know this don't help because of where you live but if you are ever down this way I usually get my Acrylic at Custom plastic's in Fargo they can usually have it cut for you in one day to size, since I got my router table and table saw I usually buy bulk and cut it myself now.
I usually do my own Acrylic work, I'm working on a display frag tank for Cammie right now and if work ever slows down I might get it done. Rolling Eyes

There was a guy in Ely that made tanks but he moved a couple of years back. Jim, Icereefer, does nice work. He just made a sump for Debben and there are pics of it on their forum (www.redrivervalleyreefers.com). He's a good distance from you but you guys could potentially meet up at a meeting here in Bemidji. (I'm thinking of having a rock cooking meeting June 16th. Very Happy ) There's some good pics of his work on www.redrivervalleyreefers.com. They had an acrylic workshop in the Duluth club last summer maybe (www.lsmac.org) so they may have a lead on acrylic if you want to check with them.

Thanks guys. I checked it out, great work Icereefer!!!! Not sure what to do, money is gone for now, so I think I will run a tote until I can get the goods and just do an ugly rough cut on my own. I have not figured out the pics on here yet, but I started a build thread on reef2reef. I might have to follow up with you Icereefer on acquiring some acrylic for my job. Thanks again for the help! Surprised

I've done the tote thing before. Sort of harder to do than a normal tank, tbh, but it works.

Good luck, and welcome to Frozen!
