Crystal Reef Eurobraced Aquarium with Stand: 90 to 260 Gallons
These are only some of the standard sizes we offer. We can build your tank and stand to any size with up to a 1/4" accuracy.
PENINSULA UPGRADE: Take the price of the regular setup and multiply by 1.05 for a clear glass tank/stand combo; or by 1.10 for a Starphire tank/stand combo.
We also offer fully plumbed barebones and turnkey reef-ready systems.

Our Crystal Reef series features a eurobraced design, wherein the top of the aquarium is secured with 3-5" wide glass bracing all around the perimeter. The standard features include:
• high-quality, American-made 1/2" glass
• only true, patented Ultra-Clear Starphire used as the low-iron glass option
• diamond-edge polish on all panels and braces
• black silicone
• 1/4" hard PVC foam bottom pad which eliminates the need for any extra padding between aquarium and stand
• blacked-out back panel
• reinforced vertical seams
• center back trapezoid overflow box with 3-4 holes
LOCAL CUSTOMER DISCOUNTS
Our local customers can use discount codes SANDIEGO, ORANGECOUNTY, RIVERSIDE, LOSANGELES. Additional discounts available when picking up from our warehouse.
For your viewing panels, choose from clear or patented Ultra-Clear Starphire glass. The clear glass is sometimes called "green glass" due to the slight green tint which gets more pronounced as the thickness of the glass increases. Unlike many mass-market manufacturers, we only use American glass made by PPG and Pilkington.
EUROBRACE DESIGN DETAILS
The design of the eurobrace depends on the size and dimensions of the tank: taller tanks require double overlapping glass bracing; longer tanks have the eurobrace supplemented with cross braces. Additionally, a bottom perimeter brace is used on the larger tanks to reinforce the bottom seam.
For your overflow, your options are: a standard internal overflow (trapezoid or rectangular); or a Synergy external overflow. The 16" Synergy Shadow overflow is rated for up to 2,500 GPH, so one unit is sufficient for tanks up to 250 gallons. Some hobbyists prefer more flow and/or dispersing the overflows around the tank. Each additional overflow is $160.
Hole pattern and size are customizable at no additional charge (3-5 holes total). The internal overflows have (2) pre-drilled 1.5" holes to accommodate 3/4" Loc-lines.
Additional options (tempering, Starboard-lined bottom, smoked glass instead of painted back panel, metal bracing on the top, etc.) are available -- please inquire about the cost through our Contact Form.
Although we offer a wide variety of styles and finishes, the two main price groups for the stands are Modern (flush-front stands) and Traditional (stands with moulding). The pricing below is for Modern stand styles; Traditional styles are $200-500 extra depending on size.
Crystal Dynamic aquariums are covered by a 1-year warranty (2 years if purchased and used with our stand). Please refer to our User Manual for the rules and best practices of aquarium handling and maintenance.
