Midwest Custom Aquarium’s (hereinafter MCA) acrylic aquariums are warranted for a lifetime against leakage due to manufacturer defect. The aquarium needs to be placed on an appropriate stand for the warranty to be valid. Any wood cabinetry or steel frame built by MCA for the aquarium will be considered appropriate. This warranty extends to the original purchaser of the tank only, and is not transferable to subsequent owners.
The entire bottom of the aquarium must be fully and evenly supported on a flat, level surface at all times. The use of a stand that supports the tank around the perimeter only, as often used for glass tanks, will void the warranty. An appropriate stand for acrylic tanks will be strong enough to hold the weight and will have a top that is flat enough so that if the tank were set directly on it, there would be no dips or humps that would cause the tank bottom to not make contact with the top of the stand at any point before it is filled. For all practical purposes, the top of the stand must be as strong at any given point in the middle as it is on the perimeter. This means that a sheet of plywood cannot simply be set on top of a perimeter stand, as when filled with water the tank bottom could bulge down in the middle and put extra stress on the bonds.

Acrylic aquariums are visibly clearer than glass aquariums. Glass aquariums, especially thick glass, have a tendency to distort the view of the inhabitants. Most acrylic does not have the common green tint that is normally associated with standard glass aquariums. Acrylic may still have color, and this should be taken in to consideration when purchasing your tank. Acrylic aquariums may significantly deform when full of water, causing bowing of the edges and deformation of the sides. Additionally acrylic aquariums need to be supported completely across the bottom; metal stands which support aquariums only on the edges need to have a piece of plywood or other support completely across the bottom of the tank.Acrylic aquariums are stronger than glass aquariums. Even though an acrylic aquarium can be broken, they can withstand accidents and mistakes better than glass. This patented designer aquarium is handcrafted from top grade cell caste acrylic and finished with a special iPad style high gloss smooth surface for stunning elegance, the beauty of the aquarium is further enhanced by four clear/white acrylic corner posts and a clear acrylic cover. The filter box and lighting hood are hidden behind the top frame panel for a super clean look. It can be easily set up on an aquarium stand or on a sturdy console table.
