If you want to know where to buy the other components, vendors change all the time. Just search the web: "glass cylinder vase", "cork mat", "90 gph powerhead", "acrylic disc", and "acrylic bumper". In the video, I used Everbilt 0.5" acrylic bumpers, which I prefer due to their particular height and shape. Half cylinder with standard gloss black acrylic cabinetry.Half Cylinder Aquarium

Shoppers at Luxe Moroccan Mall Take Elevator through World’s Largest Conical Acrylic Aquarium Designed and Built by International Concept Management

The cone-shaped aquarium designed and built by International Concept Management, Inc. at a Moroccan luxury mall is the world’s first and largest acrylic structure of its type. The acrylic aquarium gives shoppers a chance to take an elevator ride through the center of the aquarium to get eye-to-eye with sharks and rays while learning more about aquatic life.

Casablanca, Morocco. January 3, 2012 – The world’s first and largest cone-shaped aquarium with an inner acrylic cylinder housing a glass elevator recently debuted at the new Morocco Mall in Casablanca. Aquadream, the 31 foot tall (9.3 meter) acrylic aquarium designed and built by International Concept Management, Inc. (ICM), is the centerpiece of the luxury giga-mall along Morocco’s coast.The exterior of the aquarium is nearly 40 feet in diameter (12.1 meters) at the bottom of the cone and nearly 44 feet in diameter (13.4 meters) at the top, with acrylic panels more than 26 feet (7.8 meters) tall and 4.7 inches thick (12cm). The inner cylinder is 11 feet in diameter (3.4 meters) and four inches thick (10cm). In total, the aquarium holds more than 1,000 metric tons of saltwater.RPT assisted ICM in the engineering and manufacture of all the R-Cast acrylic panels used in the construction of Aquadream and helped with the on-site assembly. Because the finished outer cylinder was too large to ship in one piece, RPT fabricated it in seven sections. Once on-site, RPT and ICM teams bonded the pieces together to create the conical exterior. The inner cylinder arrived fully-assembled - from sister company RPT Asia, Ltd. in Thailand - which was then lowered into the center of the aquarium.The monumental cylinder is 24 meters tall, 10 meters wide, and holds approximately 238,000 gallons of water. Visitors to the aquarium can ride up through the aquarium in an all-encompasing elevator to get an immersive experience and exit through an acrylic tunnel at the top to return to the mall.At nearly 30 feet tall this amazing acrylic cylinder aquarium is among the tallest in North America and when full of water, it weighs over 83,000lbs. From design to installation the complex endeavor took over 6 months to complete. The stunning aquarium provides a focal point in the lobby of a major corporation.Using only the best quality materials, we aim for MRC equipment to be more than just “functional”.
