With "Made to Order" we create the aquarium system you want (112 to 200 Gallons) while you plan all of the aquascaping ideas and accessories.
What is a NUVO "Made to Order" (MTO) purchase?
A Nuvo "Made to Order" purchase is defined as any product that is generally not in-stock and requires long process times to create. These aquariums and stands (112 to 200 gallons) are generally oversized, extremely heavy, and incur much more freight fees to transport.
How long does it take from the time of order?
Once you place your order, we will begin acquiring the raw materials for production. Please allow four to six months from the time you order to ship out from our Cerritos, CA facility.
What are the benefits for a NUVO "Made to Order" purchase?
All "Made to Order" purchases receive a 40% discount off the MAP retail price. This saves you money and gives you time to acquire equipment and dream of your set up.
The low iron glass panels are created to the proper thicknesses for over-built safety.
The panels are cured in a special oven made only for aquarium glass.
Skilled technicians hand cut with precision using glass specific steel wheel blades and diamond bit hole saws.
The acrylic overflow panels are laser cut by machine.
All components, including Euro-bracing, are now assembled by professional and experienced Innovative Marine craftsmen.
Commercial grade marine silicone is applied by hand and then smoothed to a fine line, giving that quality finish expected by Innovative Marine customers.
After at least 14 days of curing time, the silicone as well as the entire aquarium is inspected and detailed to meet IM standards.
After all components have passed quality control, a final inspection is made to the system as a whole.
Reinforced aluminum is extruded to construct a strong and evenly supported aquarium stand that will not warp or swell. Superiorly built with quality and safety at its foundation.
What processes are involved making my aquarium?
Styrofoam borders and corners insulate the aquarium inside a custom box. They are then enclosed by an export certified custom plywood crate with metal frame borders.
Can I Cancel, Change, or Return my Purchase After Ordering?
Payment is made in full at the time of ordering. Once you have submitted your order, cancellations, changes, and returns are not offered. Since this is a "Made to Order" purchase, please be absolutely sure before submitting your order.
