Marineland's custom Starphire Aquarium


  • 400g-on-stand

I asked them for my dream tank, and they built it. 

The 400g Starphire glass tank is 84" long by 36" wide by 30" tall, and has a full width external overflow at one end that is completely hidden by a black acrylic panel. All the seams are bonded with black silicone. Black trim wrap the base and top rim of the tank. I wanted euro-bracing and no cross braces. The external overflow has four 1.5" drains.  This is the lst custom-made Marineland tank built. I used a powdercoated steel stand to maximize space underneath for better access.

The clean look is visually appealing.

I asked that the black plastic trim wrap the full length of the tank to include the external overflow for a more polished complete look.

The overflow area will get a black acrylic lid to prevent nuisance algae from growing within.

Four 1.5" bulkheads provide plenty of drainage.  Three drains lead to the skimmer zone, one drains into the refugium zone.
