where to get acrylic sump made

hello fellow reefers,

This might sound like a silly question, but does any one know where i can get an acrylic sump/fuge made? What i want is pretty much basic nothing crazy. I can make one out of glass myself but i'd rather have acrylic. i can get a 75 gallon acrylic sump from glasscages for about 300 plus shipping but i don't know anything about them. I'm in NJ so if anyone knows of a company close to the tristate area that would be great

I bought a used aquarium for $40, an acrylic sheet from HD ~15 and a tube of Weldon for ~7 and I made this. Very easy and this was my first attempt

I had my pieces cut at a place called Tap Plastics. They called it a 5 sided box. They'll cut all the pieces and sell you the glue or they'll put it together.

I think they are a chain. If not... there should be some place similar.
Whether you think you can... or you think you can't... you're probably right!

In NJ.. EMCO plastics. They do acrylic tanks and will do custom work.
