Default Re: Fish tank mod!!!

New plans coming up.











My scanner is tiny and my drawing pad is huge, so I am sorry for the terrible scans.

I know, I have done tons of research on them. I was gonna put two in my 55 gallon tank a while back, but decided against it because I would rather give them more room.

Basically, the requirements are what I keep anyway, except warmer water: 15ppm nitrates, 0 ppm nitrites, 0 ppm ammonia, 6.5 pH, soft water (not a problem here), ~80-82 degrees F.

Ugh gotta rotate the scans, did not notice they were all upside down.

YAY! I just talked to someone who built a 240g tank with just four sheets of plywood.

Looks like my build is getting a whole lot simpler.

Btw, I am cycling in some temporary tanks to hold my fish while I build. 3-4 weeks and they should be ready!

Wow, nice plan. I also notice you draw very straight lines. I can't no matter how hard I try! I'd need to use a 3D CAD drawer.

Actually, no. My brother managed to break the shatterproof ruler, so I used a folder and a tape measure.

Some of those were drawn freehand though. It's pretty obvious which ones.
