Regardless of what names (including the usuals) you get, don't fall into a false sense of security of things turning out fine based on recommendations given or read here. Get every small detail confirmed in writing including agreed time frame for completion/delivery. It will save you a long delay, disappointment, headaches and money. What you agree on the phone and what you get weeks later may be two different things.

Just saying from recent experience.

I won't get anyone except Dennison to build my tanks...He built my 8x4....almost 10 years on now and still going strong...build quality is perfect and he will bend over backwards to help. Many can vouch for this. He has a lot of experience in building tanks on the larger scale.

I am more just surprised to hear someone not impressed with him.

Yea he can take longer than expected if he has a heap of work loaded up.

But thats the risk you take getting a tank from a popular tank builder.

Wasnt a deal breaker for me.

My tank from him is 1200 litres.

The thought of it letting go is not a pretty one.

I asked around a lot of people before settling on Dennison.

And only heard good things from the monster fish people.

I'm with the other guys here.

Dennison 100%.

For a larger tank I wouldn't trust anybody else.

Top quality build was delivered on time with no hiccups at all.

Put it on the stand and I was ready to rock.

I think the words above would be the first bad ones I have ever heard about him.

Everything was and still is perfect with my tank.

Also the first time I have ever heard anything negative here about dennison... can't help but feel someone who made something with the wrong glass and wrong size is someone else entirely and not dennison

Wouldnt matter to me,Would still get him to make my tanks and travel to collect them.After seeing and selling tanks built here and overseas Micks have always been worth every cent spent.Have had nothing but good dealings with him over the last 10 years.

You have got to be kidding.

I have been thinking about this and can think of at least 30 people that I know with 8 foot AND BIGGER tanks that were all made by Dennison.

Cannot think of anyone not stoked with their tank.

I'm thinking theres at least HUNDREDS of people in the Brisbane area that he has helped move monster tanks.

Which is a daunting thing to do srsly.

Maybe it is a fan club, but only because he does good work.

To put this in perspective....... I could have reccomended AOA to get a custom tank done.

but as soon as I saw the tank size, I knew exactly who was perfect for the build.

Now I cant comment on Micks work, but it also sounds top notch.

Which is great, as the more talented tank builders we have in QLD the better.

Props should also go to (G & J) Gary Maher!

I have owned many of his tanks, and always loved them.

Great cabinet work too.

Have personally had nothing bigger than a 6x2x2, but I have no doubt he would be up to the task on a bigger size as well.

Yeah I say there are way more than what we even know about.

But if you go to Maryannes FB page you can see just a small portion of the tanks he has made from big to small.

I too have had quite a few tanks that were built by Gary Maher.

They were bloody great who makes tanks 1 foot high out of 10mm glass ??

But who ever you get to build it in the long run I would go at least 4ft wide.

Or if you only want a male 3 ft wide will be enough.

+1 for dennison! The 3 tanks I have at the moment have all been built by him in the past at some point. Never had a problem! I sleep soundly at night knowing dennison built them.

Bloody hell, I opened a can of worms. Thanks again everyone I had a remeasure last night and I can go 1100 wide only a 100mm off 4 foot. Have had a couple of quotes and pretty happy with both. Cheers
