Specials & Discounts


Our standard turnaround times are anywhere from 2.5 to 5 months, depending on size and composition of the build. In order to satisfy the demand of customers that need an aquarium as soon as possible, we always strive to expand our IN-STOCK selection. All the tanks you see here are in-stock, priced to sell, and ready to ship within a week (barring any additions to the order such as a wood wrap for the stand, plumbing, etc.). The IN-STOCK section will usually have at least one of the 225 gallon (72x30x24), regular layout, Starphire tank drilled for an external overflow -- our most popular configuration. It will also have tanks that were built with glass panels ordered by mistake, so some odd sizes will be present (for example, 73" long vs. the standard 72"). Finally, it will also have tanks that are brand new and structurally perfect but have some minor imperfections. THESE IMPERFECTIONS WILL ALWAYS BE CLEARLY NOTED IN THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION. 

Please note no modifications or customizations are available on the in-stock items, other than adding extra items to the order.

All overstocked items are covered by the same CDA Warranty as our made-to-order tanks.


Whenever we participate in local aquarium shows, we bring brand new and recently built displays that are available for pre-sale at a discount. You must be ready to transport the tank immediately after the end of the show, and we won't be taking any responsibility for transportation. Reach out to us at cdafishtanks@gmail.com to inquire about our participation in any of the upcoming fish shows in your area.

Due to our limited ability to travel to some shows, we are also happy to partner with local fish stores or maintenance professionals who can man our booth and ensure our "remote" participation in the show. Our partners are welcome to sell the display at the show or take it with them once the show ends. 


Order stand with no finish (paint/stain yourself or hire a local handyman) and SAVE $700-900, depending on size.

Split payment option (50% deposit, 50% prior to shipping) is available for all custom tanks, as well as specials and in-stock items. Please reach out to cdafishtanks@gmail.com to have your payment split in half.
