Starphire glass is a special type of high-clarity glass that is made with very low amounts of iron. This low level of iron removes the greenish-blueish tint that can be seen especially on larger and longer sizes of glass.
Starfire glass is commonly used in aquariums, especially reef aquariums, where bright colours are desired to be seen unaltered. The only other glass option for a clearer viewing is no glass, such as “top down” viewing from above the surface of the water.

The cost of a tank depends on a variety of things.  Delivery costs are included in most custom tanks as normal road vehicles are not sufficient for transporting large-sized tanks. Remember that no two tanks are the same, unless they are manufactured. Every one of our tanks is made to satisfy the specifics of each customer. Size, thickness of glass panels, the position of the weir, height and depth are some of things taken into consideration when you are thinking of getting a custom-built tank. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to ask for a written quote.

here are two options once your tank is built, delivered and installed. We can do all of the hard work for you and source materials, livestock and equipment so we see your tank through from start to finish, or we can give you advice on what is best for you to do if you’re the DIY type. Whatever your intentions, we are 100% committed to ensuring you achieve your goal as a fish tank owner.

When your order is processed, you will be contacted to discuss the most convenient method of shipping. Pick-up and delivery is available. Please note, due of the nature of our work, if we are sending aquatic stock such as live animals, express shipping is vital. Shipping live animals is up the customer’s discretion as we do not offer refunds. However, we provide after sales customer service and assistance.

There is really no answer. I have seen heavily stocked fish tanks flourish while others with very little in it, crash. The limitations you have reflect your commitment to your tank, although, there are obviously restrictions on which fish you can keep in smaller tanks. Regular water changes and understanding your feeding schedule are integral to your tank’s sustainability. Research and knowledge is crucial before putting anything in your tank.  Contact us if you aren’t too sure about a particular specimen.
