So, built the rack for the 3 -10g tanks this weekend, the sketch had some major flaws in measurements... made some D'oh moments, but I love the way it is looking so far
All the lumber
Got it all cut - needed changes the next day....
Got the front and back put together
Pandora wondering what all the commotion is

Also, the deal I had lined up for that 75g fell through, guy failed to mention the melted center brace on the tank
What do you guys think of this deal
I see what I'm assuming is a aquaclear 70 in the tank (would sell) I would also sell the fish too
Was asked by my fiance to take my time and save up the costs for the build slowly, so I'm going to start swinging by home depot every once in awhile and checking there cull bin. Can get random lumber for $.50 a piece

How cool would this be....
Comes with a "standard" light (probably a 4' single t8 bulb), lids, and a ac110 filter. Hmmmm... if I could get it for like $150, sell the filter $30-40
Not a tank I would ever look forward to moving though. Thus my hesitation. Thing weighs 200+ lbs empty.

no, the 120 is $200 and the 44g is $300.
I think my major concern with the larger tank would be the weight on the floor. Under my house is a crawl space, so I'd have to find a way to add more support to the floor beams.
Also, I really only plan to be in this house for another year... do I want to get that big of a tank just to have to move it again someday...
My fiance brought up a good point though. She said why go with the 75, if I plan to eventually upgrade that too <-why I love this woman.
So really, I could afford the tank, the extra lumber costs would be negligible and I don't think I would need any additional equipment than what I have now
Jager 250W heater
2- aquaclear 110's
Lights (would add a few more to make up for width of tank front to back)
Sand (instead of 1 bag, I'd need 2)
