Custom tank builders

Looking to build a custom tank to replace a 36x21x20 reef tank. Building a 60x21x24 rimless tank and trying to decide who to use. Glass cages seems to have the attention on this site, I am within 30 miles of coast to coast and can pick up, Miracles? Looking for advice as to who would you use based on experience?

Coast to Coast does great work but you pay for it.
Glass Cages has come a long way from old.

Im local to glass cages and they still carry a stigma for me. I remember seeing sloppy work and MANY cracks and leaks after delivery. Maybe they got better but I couldnt bring myself to order from them.

I ended up going with Miracles for my custom 330 and the build quality is very nice.

Plus when I ordered they were one of only two tank manufacturers that even replied to my inquiry.
