  1. Talking diy 125 gallon* acrylic construction

    0 Not allowed!

    *Calculated from projected outside dimensions, 48x24x25 in. Inside capacity will probably be somewhere around 110 gallons.

    I have the materials ready to start building!
    Any suggestions for cool stuff to do with the "practice" scrap pieces?

    Maybe make some Tunnels in the tank? Thats what I would do. Small circular pieces that fish can swim through. But cover with substrate so it looks as natural as possible.

    Good luck, if you can take pictures through the process. Could you make a mini shrimp tank?

    Good ideas, I was actually thinking more of filtration stuff. I'm planning to make an intake in a corner with the longest piece.

    Actually I already have a mini amphipod tank.

    Sure I'll take pictures when things get going. Right now all there is is sheets of acrylic leaning against the wall.

    With scrap pieces hold onto them, never know when you might need to make. Could always make "shelves" in the tank. Add a little substrate on them and some plants or decorations.

    Acrylic is joined using solvent cements. They work by melting the acrylic together.

    Ill definately be watching this thread. You should also keep a running tab of how much it costs. With the scrap pieces I would just use to practice everything that needs to be done before you actualy do it.

    Yes. The idea is to make useful stuff for the tank using the scrap pieces, that don't really need to be completely watertight (but still trying to get it perfect the first time)

    What I would do if I could, try to make a shelf with a circular cut out, then make (if possible, don't really know) a rounded tube piece going down to another shelf that the fish can swim through/hide in. On the shelfs add some small plants. If there are any plants that grow and overhang on areas that would look pretty cool. The fish would probably enjoy swimming in that to.
