Why not just buy a 15 gallon tank it will cost about the same if not less and you save yourself the labor.

building it would give him twice the surface area which is a little more important then total volume. plus experience building a tank

As MG said, I want the big foot print, no height, since it is for a lobster not a bunch of fish. I am going to go price glass on Monday.

Understood. I wanted to build a tank but found out it was cheaper to buy one. Sorry about that I didn't get the part about the lobster. Good luck with the build.

i think until you get to 100+ gallon it works out to be cheaper to buy. in so cali its not worth building or buying much of anything new since you can find great deals often on tanks up to 240 gallons.

I priced out glass to build a 180 gallon tank and it came to 350 bucks higher then buying one. I wish was over there, I would love to pick up a 180 cheap.
