Hi matemcnutty and KrypleBerry. Thanks for the info and the link. Just checked it out. They look awesome. 24"? I could get into that!
Thanks, I was thinking about that as well. That would be a good way to make my first tank. If I mess up, I'm not out of pocket that much.
Hmm I just came into a broken 90g so I'm getting the glass for free. So adding everthing I think I need to my Amazon basket...
Razors 100 pack (ok a bit overkill, I have other uses for them too)
$5.81 Addon item
Glass cutter (I got one that has 6 cutting wheels so you rotate the wheel and have a fresh blade so I'm paying a bit more for it)
2 tubes of GE Silicone 1 Window and Door (maybe 2 tubes is overkill, I also have other uses for it)
2 x $4.47 Addon item
Subtotal = $23.74
+ Tax 9% = $25.88
Add on the $1/g tank... 20g would be enough...
Still pretty expensive, almost $50, and a whole lot of work. Not worth it, go directly to Mr Aqua 7.5g cube, or +$30 for the low iron/UNS version.
For me tho it's not about saving money, it's about getting a tank that is EXACTLY the right size to fit in a certain spot and maximize volume for the spot that it's in.
Tho... it sure was nice to get a free 90g with a cracked panel. Saved $22 lol. This glass is way too thick for what I want to build tho.
