ctaylor3737 Old thread I know but this has happened to me a few weeks ago, It actually bowed overnight and caused my tank to overflow which bowed it even more. I lost alot of cardinals because I had to put more water in the day after I got them and move the tank, they did not like that. I did have to make my own shelf and support it properly.

sbarbee54 Already changed to a 55 because I got a donation of a 90 gallon wave tank and stand to take the place of my 55 discus tank so I will move that to be my Taiwan tank

sbarbee54 So once I get my new cell phone, as mine had a software update then it would not let me do anything, damn phones. It will be here Monday, but looks like one of my shadow panda babies, well now juvi is going to turn out as a shadow Hinomura. I feel so luck I count about 10 more shadow panda babies that are almost juvis on the come up and I think one of the pee wee WR might be a Hino as well.

Asphalt Art I should have mentioned that the support kits from the company are completely free to your door. I know I am not going to use all of mine when I receive them on my existing rack since the 55g takes up a lot of room on the bottom. I intend to double up on another rack, call again for supports for that rack, and run (16) or (20) 10g cull/grade specific tanks with a lot more support. It might be worth it to call, and if you buy the same one again you can really line the tanks up.

I envy your wide variety of shrimp FWIW. I last kept shrimp back in 2004-7 and there weren't nearly that many varieties available back then. I intend to reach straight jacket status this time around.

Asphalt I know what you mean. I pulled all mine off and re-did it with 1x4 and 1x6 on the smaller rack. In the one with 2 tanks per self I re-did it all with 2x4 and in both cases screwed it to the out side and to them self. I also did it width wise too and screwed them to the first layer
