    Default My two stands are now one - finally!


    1 Not allowed!
    Here are some pics of the completed stands. They are all painted and screwed together. I still have to do another coat of poly on the canopy and add the hook and eyes that will hold it open. I ended up not hinging it to the wall - the back edge rests on the 2x3 support board that is screwed into the wall. I also have to finish the tile along the edge of the plywood base.

    I will be cleaning the tanks and adding the black sand in the next 2 weeks. Then it's time to aquascape!


    Just the stand frames - the flexible black acrylic panels slide into slots at the edges and in the middle. Those areas got a coat of poly, so they look darker.

    Complete setup with the black panels inserted and the canopy. The gray stand trim piece is removable for access and keeps the acrylic panels flat against the stand frame.

    Thanks, Judi. I'm really pleased with how it all came out. I'm going to do the same finish on the 75 gal canopy. It's been very humid here (78% +) for a couple of weeks and it has taken me much longer to get the finishing done.

    Your set-up is looking really good

    Nice job
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Your tanks look amazing together!

    I know you already have your stocking plan, but since you have side-by-side tanks, have you thought of doing something like the water bridge described in this thread? It would probably significantly affect your stocking plan and would require modifications of your canopy, so I'm not sure you want to do that at this point, but when I saw your two tanks side-by-side I thought of that thread.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. I'm very excited about the dual 29s. Will paint the tank backs this weekend and do the final coat of poly on the canopy. I'll be ordering stock from TWS, so I need to get everything done and the tanks cycled before the weather turns chilly.

    Good thought, but I want the tanks to be separate. Adding a bridge kind of negates the attraction of two species tanks. Also, the glowlight danios can be shy around other tankmates and I want them to be comfortable in their environment.

    Yes...I figured your stocking might prevent it... I'd love to do something like that in the future!
