Large Glass Aquarium Builders?

Sometime over the next 6 months or so I'll be jumping back into the large aquarium game. Looking to get a very large tank made, somewhere in the vicinity of 500g. After having a 330g acrylic tank for several years, I vowed never to go acrylic again. Look at it funny and it scratches. So I'll be looking for someone to make a glass tank, measurements somewhere around 120"x30" and 34" high. Tank, stand/cabinet, sump, everything... I've been given a few recommendations and will be getting some quotes in the months to come, but thought I'd check in here to see if anyone can offer other suggestions.

The two places I'll be getting quotes from so far: Nature Design Studio (NDS) in Los Angeles and Custom Aquariums in Wisconsin. If anyone would like to recommend other aquarium builders, I'd love to check them out. Additionally if anyone has experience with either of the two companies I mentioned, please share. This is obviously going to be a big investment so I want to make the right choices from the get go.

Thanks in advance for your input!

I decided to go for an acrylic tank from fishtanksdirect.com. My tank should be ready by October/November. Check back with me then but I have a feeling the quality is very good.

Looking forward to seeing your tank. My uncle is looking to get 500g as well and he's considering acrylic. We'll check out that site when I visit him this week for the installation of the bumper and winch from 4Wheelonline onto his truck.

Vandaag had mijn zoon eindelijk tijd om met mij de glazen panelen te plaatsen.
Sectie2/3 met inhoud 2200 liter is geplakt en wacht nog op de plaatsing van de stabilisatoren en trekstips.
