Thread: Is this crazy?

    The good LFS I had locally closed a few years ago. The crappy one a town over also closed about a year ago so I am down to Petsmart which is still around a half hour drive. The next LFS is about 2 hours away and I have tried to order several tanks from them but they just never seem to come in. I could order an acrylic tank online and have it shipped to my home, but with these large cichlids I know it would be badly scratched in no time. Fish keeping in my area doesn't seem to be popular these days we have no aquarium club and you never see a used tank over 55G. I have to order most of the fish I want online, I will occasionally buy a common schooling species locally but that is about it.

    Fortunately I only really "work" in my home office a few days per month, otherwise it is more of just a computer room/fish room. I do have a TV and recliner in there so the SO can hang out with me while I do work or am piddling on the tanks.

    oh, yah...after seeing that you gotta do it. One large tank, however nice, can't compete with all the different fish you can keep with this layout....

    What about a DIY stand, with two 75 gal on top and the 6 foot on the bottom? Even though it's 2 feet shorter, you could easily support the 6 footer on the bottom with extra bracing.

    My 75 gal - Gold Pristella Tetras, Scissortail Rasboras, Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish, Longfin Leopard & Zebra Danios, Bristlenose Pleco
    My Dual 29 gals - Left Tank - Diamond Tetras. Right Tank - Amano Shrimp, maybe a Mystery Snail

    It looks like you can move one 75 stand, the 50 gallon, and the floor lamp to have room for 4 double stand 75s. The entire wall and then have the 50 gallon high tech tank beside the recliner. More tanks, More tanks ....... LOL
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    I don't think that drawing is to scale... (I could be wrong though)
    Current tanks:
    37G FW - 3 Pearl Gourami, 4 Black Mollies, approximately 20+ Molly Fry, 5 Assassin Snails | 10G Planted FW - 14 Molly Fry, rocks, DW and an Anubias Nana - journal

    Im liking this idea more and more...and visibly seeing it even a crappy MS paint knock up does make it seem like a better choice. I can also add tanks slowly as I form plans and not have to rush things or half@ss any projects. I will however buy the 3 stands so that I can get the arrangement of the tanks positioned and then probably add one at a time. I do know that my first purchase will be an A.orbicularis probably sometime in march-april(fingers crossed they remain in stock).

    The drawing is also not to scale, I simply used a square and made boxes for what was in there.

    Drfostersmith has their 75 gallon metal stands on sale for 85. They have to be assembled and aren't the solid iron ones.

    Thanks! I have used those Titan stands many times in the past...actually very quality items and do fit 2 tanks of the same size. Very good for MTS sufferers
