90 gallon aquariums make a great addition in any home as long as there is space for them to be installed. If you are thinking about getting such a large aquarium for your home, rather than going for the more traditional styles of 90 gallon aquariums, why not consider getting a custom made one, if you have the funds available.

Why Consider Having A Custom Made 90 Gallon Aquarium?

One reason to consider getting a custom made 90 gallon aquarium, is that the space where you want it to be situated, is of an irregular size or shape. It may also be worth your while considering having a wall mounted one if space is limited, rather than going for one that is free standing.

A custom made 90 gallon aquarium allows you the chance to choose some designs which are more unique, especially if they are made from acrylic. As this material is very malleable, so the chance for you to opt for some really wacky shapes is possible; just make sure that what you choose fits in with the rest of the decor in that room.

Custom Made 90 Gallon Aquarium – Things To Consider When Buying One

Yes you are going to have to pay more for a custom made 90 gallon aquarium over a standard one, but don’t forget the design is going to be completely unique. However the difference in the cost of buying a custom made one over a standard one, is not that much.

It is a good idea, before you go out to buy either a standard or custom made 90 gallon aquarium, that you do some research first. A quick look online and you will be able to compare the prices and spend time reading a few product reviews, before you invest your money.

One of the big advantages to be had when you buy a custom made 90 gallon aquarium, is that you can get additional items included into its design. Things like wires can be fitted and holes drilled in the exact positions where the inlets and outlets for closed loops and tubes, will then be able to run through.

It is also during the design stage for your custom made 90 gallon aquarium, that you can decide whether you want the standard long tank, or something that is taller and deeper. The taller styles of this aquarium require a lot less bracing, but are still able to let plenty of natural light into them.

Another thing that needs to be considered when purchasing a custom made 90 gallon aquarium, is what material it is to be made from. You can either go for one made from glass, or one made from acrylic. As previously mentioned, an acrylic one gives you more scope to go for some very unusual and unique tank designs, and they weigh less than glass ones. However, the cheapest ones to buy are those made from glass.
