What a tease! Get me all excited with a huge custom Tang tank and then cut me off with no updates. :)

@h0nkzz I have few questions.
Could you tell me what type of resin did you use? Did you use epoxy or polyester resin?
How do you plan to fix the glass to concrete? Will be fixed to concrete or fiberglass? Something between glass and fiberglass/concrete?

Else good job so far :thumb:, it look like an amazing tank =D>. It looks like something I should have in my living room :drooling:. So good luck and don't forget to update us :popcorn:.

@Galc :
its epoxy resin, and since the inside of the tank is all resin coated, the glass will be siliconed onto the resin. I figured silicone doesnt adhere well to concrete.
Hopefully there won't be any problem with leakage later on, *fingers crossed* :D
