Midwest Custom Aquarium is proud to have acquired the experience over the years to be able to offer custom aquariums in almost any shape. We are well known for these capabilities and are the go-to source for many custom aquarium installers and private individuals throughout the country. We are very good at it but haven’t allowed that to inflate our ego’s and prices along with it. Most odd shapes will require a drawing sent to us to quote it. Below are examples of just a small portion of the custom shapes we have built.
We’ve built a number of these aquariums and call the shape a Stepdown. The majority of the tank is built at a certain height while the end portion drops down to give an area of deeper water. Most we have built are for clients who use them for reef tanks and want an area that is at a lower height for viewing as well as an area with lower light intensities. This one is 30” tall and drops down to 48” at the end. Set up as a peninsula with the overflow on the end that goes up against a wall.
We build these somewhat regularly and call it a Recurve. Instead of the whole front bowing out as in a bowfront, just a portion in the middle does. It gives a nice graceful look to the front of a tank for a unique custom look. This particular one was built for an in-wall installation with external overflows on the ends.
