    Hi everyone,
    We are looking to upgrade Frank's tank. He is currently in a 4ft x 2ft x 2ft tank. We are looking to upgrade to a 5ft x 3ft x 2ft tank. We were looking for any recommendations in the Brisbane/Ipswich/Logan area.
    Thanks in advance!

    Are you willing to travel to Toowoomba to collect?

    Thanks Craig.

    We just got a quote from there. They seem to know their stuff. They suggested a 5ftx2.5ftx2.5ft.

    Hi,
    We are actually at Ipswich. It's just fitting it in the car. We are currently upgrading but at the moment we only have a 2 door skyline and a Swift
    Not much space in either.

    Ah OK mate no worries, just there's a good custom aquarium builder up here who'd be hard to top, he's been in the industry for 30 years. He built my custom 4X3X2 turtle aquarium in 2012 from 12mm glass and a 25mm double glazed base, He also built the heavy duty 6-legged pine stand especially for it, delivered the lot to my front door with a 5 year warranty for $460.

    Holy moly. For that price and warranty I'd be willing to pay someone to pick it up for us.
    We were quoted $1,200 today. Any chance you can pass on his details and I can see what we can organise.
    Thank you!

    No way mate, that's a ripoff.
    Give Murray Stark of Stark's Aquaria in Toowoomba a call. You'll need to get him soon, he shuts down over Christmas every year and doesn't start up again until late January - early February. Give him the dimensions of the tank you want and he'll quote you a price.

    Stark's Aquaria - 36A Vanity Street Toowoomba QLD 4350
    (07) 4634 1901

    Ask For Murray or Dennis.

    Stark's Aquaria has a facebook page too, message them there if you can't get them on the phone, they're always busy..
    https://m.facebook.com/Starks-Aquaria-193244387356204/

    He may even deliver to Brisbane, I know he delivers tanks as far north as Rockhampton.
