  1. Default Pressure foam under large aquarium advice


    0 Not allowed!
    Setting up a 72" long 125 gal on a support I already know is irregular so I need to compensate all that I can. I've run up on this Youtube video showing the use of what is called pressure foam or possibly polystrom to help compensate for my kind of tank support issue. I've searched a couple online aquarium supply stores but I haven't been able to turn up any such product.

    Here's the video...


    Did a search on polystrom and it seems like it's out of Australia, and I'm guessing there's a US equivalent.

    Does anyone know where I should look for this kind of foam?

    Thanks

    I think this is what you are looking for, http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...1#.USOyxmdnGSo
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    That works great mommy. However, I just use 2 or 3 layers of decoupling mats. You can get them in the flooring section of your local hardware store. They are used under wood and tile floors to evenly distribute weight.
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

    I use the 1/2" rigid foam board under my 220g . (The pink stuff) when It was first suggested to me I thought that the weight would certainly crush the foam, but I guess the weight is spread out over enough area, because it did not smash it at all. When I set up my tank I was really concerned because I built the stand myself. And even though I was very meticulous about construction I was still concerned with all that weight.

    I hope this helps.
