The Green Machine - New display tank pics as requested

Discussion in 'Journals' started by The Green Machine, 16 Jul 2008.

  1. Here are some diary style shots of our newest display tank being planted. Note the clarity of the opti-white glass and the minimal silicone work. You can get these tanks custom built from us! We will post again in a few weeks when its full of algae! We hope you like it, we are pleased so far.

    Please note- our new range of stands will be flush with the glass.

    The images aren't online that's why, I opened the links and all I got was 404 error.
     
  4. Were in the process of changing our web hosting so the main site (and tank photos) might not be accessible until tomorrow morning. With a bit of luck it should be sorted tonight though.

    Classic ADA-style with a UK-twist.

    Looks nice now, will look great when mature - I can visualise it already.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Looking good, though I must say that I think that glass looks awful that thick on such a small tank, what's the point of having lovely clear glass with big lumps (the edges) on the sides. I know that you can get thinner and I would definitely go thinner than that.

    Just my opinion (please take no offense) but I do feel very strongly about glass thickness, after all, I am a designer :lol: :oops:

    Looks great TGM.

    What is the rock work in there?
     
  16. Firstly, we are glad the pics are working and looking pretty good. We will post again with all the technical specs of the setup soon.

    Look guys, if you want 5mm glass we can give you it. We ourselves like the sturdier 10mm, however, everything on a personal level is subjective, and at the end of the day your wish is our command!

    Nice one fellas, so you finally decided to put water in it hey? LOL

    It looks real smart, i'd be chuffed to have that full setup, tank, stand and all taking pride of place in my living room.
    Loving the petrified wood, what a piece of hardscape, well worth the money.
