CALLING ALL DIY MASTERS!! Advice, opinions & suggestions needed!
I've got this awesome aspiration/idea to build my own 66 gallon custom tank (hopefully for my birthday!) and so I have come here for any advice, tips, suggestions, etc on tank building - as well as to ask some questions!
Above is a general idea of the tank I want to build, I have a stand that is perfect for it.
My main concern is, well, I have never built a tank of any size before.
I will have help, but not from anyone who has built a tank so I thought I would come here and ask.
(In case anyone is wondering, this tank is intended to become an african biotope riparium.)
My questions are in regards to materials and the actual construction of the tank.
How thick should the glass be?
How much (roughly) do you think this will cost?
Considering that I am really into my frogs, but relatively low on $
, is this project even worth it?
Should I build a frame to hold everything in place while it's being put together/cured/dried?
What glues/silicons would you reccomend?
Any DIY lighting ideas?
As said above, any input at all is much obliged!
