You should get an idea of how much retailers are asking for the size you want and price out material. I'm doing a 600 gallon (inner diameter) I am spending money but no where near what I can buy that tank for already built. Do you have any hookups with material?
My dad is big into woodworking so I might be able to get plywood on a deal, and my uncle knows a glass guy, so I might be able to get that cheap. But Yeah I don't have anything yet lol, We are still thinking about where we want it and what size. I'm only 15 lol so I can't make a tank as big as I want so it'll most likely be a max 200 gallons. And sounds good.
