    once you have the materials, it wouldn't take long at all. build a wood stand and frame, seal it all, then install the viewing panel(s). takes awhile for the water-sealer and silicone to cure, so you'd be waiting a week here and there anyways. if you were on the ball and working hard at it, I've seen weekend guys build a tank in a month.

    Thanks crispy.this post got put here cause I was dreaming about a predator tank. So what do you think would be good to keep in a tank that big . It would be an almost 100%DIY project so I know ill have to start a journal there but what is a good stocking example of some kinds of catfish I could keep in a tank that size?
