|ElBoltonero||Now I just need to find a 15H/16 tank. Not having any luck.|

|Fishies_in_Philly||it would be cool to make a co2 reactor out of acrylic too, but that takes time and effort, i just don't have any of that right now....lol|

|ElBoltonero||Oooh that's a good idea...|
|04-20-2012 07:45 PM|
Let me know how the tube work out. I wanted to eventually get some to make inline heater module.

|ElBoltonero||Yeah, that's all I meant, an actual store. A lot of these plastics companies aren't. Thanks!|

Don't bother using email. It takes a while for them to get back to you. Give them a call, the girl on the phone can answer all your questions. I actually called her to get the tube pricing for you.
I price out acrylic to make my own 300gal tank before and it was very expensive but compared to what? I find their acrylic pricing is 1/2 of what you would pay at Lowes.
BTW.. the store on 2nd street has an actual parking lot so you don't need to run around the block looking for parking.

|Fishies_in_Philly||Cut acrylic sheeting is going to be pricey no matter where you call. But ask van about their scrap bin|
|04-20-2012 07:25 PM|
|ElBoltonero||Do they have a retail shop though? Their website is kinda vague on the issue. I emailed them for a quote on cut acrylic sheet to make a custom tank and it was pretty high, but that's a great price for the tubing.|

That's the place to go for anything acrylic in the Philadelphia area. The tubing comes in 6ft length. I believe is a little over $21 for a 2" ID 6' tube.

|ElBoltonero||Ok, so along the same line...does anyone know where I can buy large-diameter (2" or larger) clear tubing (acrylic or clear pvc) retail?|

|ElBoltonero||Yeah I've read a ton. I'm planning on it being way overfiltered with the intake in one tank and the outtake in the other.|

|Fishies_in_Philly||there are bunches of articles out there about fish bridges. the one thing that i do remember is flow, without the right flow between tanks, the fish/shrimp can get stuck in the bridge.|

I'm planning on doing a fish bridge between two aquariums because they're in a space where I can't put anything bigger. I was thinking about putting holes in the glass then running clear pipe between them, but I'm pretty sure the glass won't be able to handle near that amount of weight. I'm instead considering bending the plastic and running it up and over the tops, which is closer to my original plan. I can support it apart from the tank much easier if it's not siliconed to the tank.
We'll see, it's still in the conceptual stage at this point.

|Fishies_in_Philly||i wanna hear what the crazy idea is?? i'm all about crazy, just ask my family....LOL|

|ElBoltonero||I live near 309 and 63 (Lansdaleish) and work in Oxford Valley, so anywhere near the turnpike corridor isn't bad. Norristown and Doylestown are both close.|
