I have a tank built by E N V I S I O N, in Oregon. I can attest to outstanding build quality. I think he tends to overbuild by using thicker acrylic than technically necessary...but that helps me sleep better.

I second James at Envision- he builds an amazing tank and the customer service is unparalleled. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.

I have had tanks built from both ATM and "T" and I can say for sure, in my experience, they both build great , high quality quality tanks. I've heard good about Envision also but never owned one..
