Building your own is seldom cost effective... but if you're looking at going cheaper and using silicone then you'll want to stick with glass. Silicone doesn't stick as well to acrylic and acrylic is generally more expensive.
the dividers are to keep the moss seperate... a problem with having more than one moss in a tank is they always tend to somehow get into each other at spots... with a setup like this i could have very similer mosses togeather without confusion since i can like either write on the glass or something so i would know what each seciton had.. also i think im going to eventually put shrimp or pairs of fish in the sections as well and that would help alot since for exaple i would be able to keep cherries and snowballs side by side without any fear of cross breading.
DIY is seldome cost effective, correct but i am looking into a way for this to make it cost effective. i could just buy a bunch of big jars or something but i figured i could try something diffrent... this idea is simler to like how a petstore does their tanks usually.
so it seems glass and silicone is the best way to go? i have used silicone and plexiglass aka acrylic before... but it was in a glass tank making a devider.... what if i did a mix? would that work? say glass tank with plexiglass aka acrylic deviders?
hmm its sad because i have sold gnaster moss in the past and had no problem.... maybe there was one and he didnt want to tell me but just spam me..... for everyone who think i need a spell checker... i'm tierd i didnt really look over what i wrote. if you understand english you can understand it. friday night i drove up to nh with my dad and we got there at 12. got to the amc hut and slept till 6. then packed had breakfast got our packs on and climbed mt.washington... we dont do alot of hiking but we are in good shape. so the first time hiking this year we decided to go up the huntington racine trail its the hardest trail in the white mountains... some parts are like a 5.3 5.2 rock climb we did it with 20-30 pound packs on.... it was hard work and we still had to come down. but very wearth it... there is ALOT of moss up there.... and lets just say some, somehow made their way back home....
then i got about 5 hrs of sleep the that night and got up at 6 to go sailing in 4 foot chop with 20-25 mph winds in a sunfish sail boat which is 14ft long... so yes i do have a reason to be tierd. and have a bit of spelling errors... but i figured it was better to share info and get replies more than it was to worry about grammar. i was least expecting to get spammed.... that i have to say is the first time i have ever got spammed like that on TPT and i am very surprised at that. so lets stop this and hopefully a mod can delete those posts. ohh and thanks for the support gabeszone247 but that also was a bit spammy so also when you do something like that comment on the topic also
so could jen or a mod delete that spam? thanks in advance!
hopefully that answers the questions so far
