Let it Grow 6ft club? The closest time I've been in a club is when I ordered one with fries, even though I'm not in one, but that's cause I made it cause I work there.

(Paraphrase from the great and late Mitch hedburg.)

Anyways my 180g (2x2x6)

More pics on my intro thread.

I enjoy a challenge.....LOL.
The three tanks will use a common 100 gallon sump. Separate pumps and overflows for each tank. UNLESS !!!! I realize my original goal. Should make an impressive betta bowl

A build journal will more than likely happen, so you guys can follow along with my madness.


Harvest the best glass for fronts and sides and make the rest of tank out of ply wood.
That wood [pun not spelling error] be the most solid and achievable approach IMO.
If you actually cut the tanks and bond them together be very thorough with your top 'euro bracing'...
Lots of huge DIY ply wood tanks that are slamming...

How about connect them from the sides or the back wall with some bulkheads? I assume you just want to balance the water between right? Or you could sump the combo and have them connected to a central sump.

make a journal on it eventually

chayos00 Here's my 6 foot 125g tank with a 55g sump. I built this stand and canopy as well, granted it was a 3 year project, but it's finally done and running! This pic was taken right after my delivery of fish from LiveAquaria.com.

Thanks! It was pretty easy. If I did it again, I'd make the legs for the beamswork LED a lot longer, the whole 24" of the stand, so I could slide it back and forth. The 48" light is easy enough to just slide to the right and out of the way when I climb in there to do things.


Give it a year and it will be a forest


EDIT:

Actually, now that you've mentioned it, I am going to rebuild my lighting this weekend. I'll make the track for the beasmwork the width of the tank and RAISE the finnex a couple inches since it is an accent light only. Then the beamswork can be slid all over to work inside and around the tank without hitting the finnex.


You've done me a great service!
