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

thanks
Harry

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.

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