    Sounds good man glad to hear you got the tank without any big issues! The expanding foam idea is interesting I can't wait to see what you do with it scaping wise
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    As far as I can gather all builders expanding foams are inert so pretty much B&Q one will do the job!

    I'm getting excited, was sat in a massively boring health and safety course today doodling my tank designs ;)
    Used to try and keep track of my fish here.....

    Ran out of room and time!!!

    Why not just get a pair of Vortech MP40 powerheads. They will do the wave action much better, and much more efficiently. If I had the money, that's exactly what I'd be getting for mine.

    You hit the nail on the head.... if you had the money!

    I cannot justify spending that sort of money. They are over 300 each in the Uk, thats about $900+ for the pair!

    A wave box will cost me less than 1/6th of the price.


    Plus..........

    We collected this tonight;



    Yea baby..... Rapid Family bus!!

    Nice car Chris and you got me Tobin now about trying to create some new rock type formations using that expanding foam.can pretty much cut and sculpt it anyway you want once hardened and paint it etc.could be really neat for creating tunnels, caves and plenty books and crannies for fish to explore and hide in

    Do you think the foam would be ok for FW too? Or would plecos chewing on it be a bad idea?

    You have to cover it with an epoxy to make it safe for the water. Most SW people actually put the epoxy on it and then while the epoxy is still wet they put sand on it to give it the look of rock.
