Really depends on size as acrylic is pricey. Smaller prefabbed ones will be hard to beat. Check out MFK as lots of guys have built their own monster tanks.

This guy makes gorgeous acrylic sumps. Making an aquarium is no different with acrylic.

Putting acrylic together is easy. All you need is the right Weld-On formulation for solvent welding. Getting everything watertight and looking professional, however, takes quite a bit of practice and the right tools. You pretty much have to invest as much time, effort and money as you would into any other hobby to get really good at it.

As others have said, if its not a cost consideration it would be a fun project. There would definitely be savings if you were building a huge tank. Only issue for me would be the quality of the end product if I've never done this before. Good luck and have fun if you plan on doing it and keep us updated!
