2 1/2 Gallon Display Tanks

Post  DavidZ on Sat May 25, 2013 8:21 pm


I'm ordering frames to assemble 2 1/2 gallon display tanks if anyone is interested. I havent got the quote on glass yet, but I'm guessing it's about 6-7 bucks. The frames are $4 a pair if anyone is interested. They are nice 1 piece frames with the inner lip for a top.

I'll be ordering late next week after I get confirmation of the glass price so let me know ASAP.

Here's a picture of them. If we can get enough of them spoken for, we can get them a lot cheaper. But I think we need like 150 (75 tanks) to be spoken for.



Shipping is pretty expensive too. I looking at getting 30 or so (15 tanks) and shipping was like $30.

I'll post the glass prices as soon as I get them, probably Tuesday.

I'm looking at: http://www.aquariumframeswholesale.com/frames

I have a business license so I can get the wholesale prices, but you have to order alot of them depending on the sizes.

What size glass is needed? I often go to the local ACE or the glass store and buy ends they have left over. Usually the price is very good??? They often have stuff up to 8 or 9 inches. I can cut my own when necessary but some times they'll do it for nothing??? Good luck. Seems cool.

I got a quote for the glass, and with the frames and everyting, the tanks will end up being about $14.58 each.

Some assembly required.

Here's the breakdown:

NeedEachTotal (w/shipping and/or tax)
Frames2 1.50 5.00 (shipping is about $1 ea.)
Bottom 1 1.75 1.87
Side 1 2 2.35 5.03
Side 2 2 1.25 2.68
Total 14.58

These retail for about $20 from what I've found, so this isn't a bad deal. Was hoping it would be a lttle cheaper, but it's not bad.

I'm ordering my frames and glass on Friday, so if you are interested in any I need to know by then.

Thanks.
