Thanks Tim glad you could make it out to see it.Amazing tank. Pics dont do it justice.
Thanks youThis tank is top drawer! Very nice!
lol, if only I didn't have so many motoros. Thanks, I'm going to be putting in some driftwood and sand in first and then the clowns and see how they do then.Nice Rays! I will trade a Motoro for your Black! I can't believe the work involved in your filter system etc!! Top notch! You should go into the monster tank business!! Where are the clown loaches? They should grow huge in that tank.
Thanks your zavlar build was a good inspirationLove it! your mechanical is top notch! Rays are stunning as well! well done!
It actually did add up a bit after I kinda looked at the bills. Thanks hopefully I'll be able to finish the filter room his winter and the tanks outside.what an awesome setup! filtration system must have cost an arm and a leg! any aros in this tank?
I didn't really make up a good set of plans beforehand just jotted some notes as I went. The only reason I could do this was I built my tank off of vldesign's build from mfkWow that is an awesome tank? Do you have the plans for it? wanted to take a look at how you built it and maybe do something similiar in the future.
Sorry there is one super red in there at the moment
After looking at your build I wanna move back to the west and build something big. Montreal is a sad place to be in this hobby. cant find any good fish food let alone fish
There's not alot out here either only 4 out of my 22 stingrays were found in pet stores. Alot of the things for my tank build I got over the internet or were special orders to get. Thank god for some good importers on here.
The dats are doing amazing. I have half of them eating pellets. I did lose a few as some grew very quick and ate some of the slower growing ones.how are those indo dats doing!? they get bigget yet!?
Thak youMan!! pro setup!
I'm still aways from the top level but slowly climbing.lolWhen you are operating at the top level of the hobby you've got to go "unconventional" and import direct or work with a broker imo. Can you imagine the retail cost of what you have assembled/created?
Its awesome to watch your project develop...
is that henlei one of tims pups???its very nice
My footprint is 144" x 84" x 42". What I did was just use drywall tape on all the joins. If I wasn't tiling the tank and just painting over the zavlar I would have chosen a different textile. I have 3 sheets of 3/4" plywood and then 3 sheets of 1/2" plywood on top perpendicular to the bottom pieces and none were glued together. My beams were arranged so they were doubled up where the joins were. I debated if I should glue the 1/2" plywood to the 3/4" but figured with the tiling and the water pressure there shouldn't be a need. My tank was probably done a little overkill.Your footprint must be larger than 8x4
what strategy did you use to "bond" the multiple sheets of plywood together?
IE: you would have had at least two for your bottom... did you simply butt them together and glue - zavlar over top?
PS: I like the tile look - very nice. I wonder if this would help keep any heat in the tank (marginal of course).
I have a soapstone fireplace... very common once upon a time as when burning wood to heat your home, the stone would absorb the heat keeping your house toasty for longer periods.
Anyway.... nice build.
