Terribly sorry to disappoint, we just do square and rectangle tanks. Bow fronts, corners and odd shapes require specialist equipment which we don't have.

If we didnt ask the question we may have never known!

Cant wait to get my new one :yes :yes

What is Optiwhite™ low iron glass?                         

Optiwhite™ is a specially developed float glass which displays none of the slight green tint apparent in most standard 'clear' glasses.

Optiwhite™ has superior performance when compared with conventional clear float products; this includes higher light transmission and greater solar heat transmittance.

Benefits

Reduced iron content
Very high light transmission
Absence of "green" tint compared to clear float glass 
  
Aquarium Silicon Colour:                  
Choice of two silicone colours:

Clear or Black
At no extra charge



Visit the website for full details. N&D are a quality supplier of aquariums that can be customised to your requirements. As a previous owner of at least 5 tanks by N&D, I can personally say that the tanks and cabinets are of a very high quality. http://Www.ndaquatics.co.Uk

I will post my tank diary here at a later point to show the quality process that N&D go through.

Great build man.. Thanks for sharing such detailed information about aquarium manufacturing.. I am looking to get one aquarium very soon and would love to make use of the details.
