Anyone with DIY AGA design plans/ experience?
I've been looking back at a lot of the old threads about DIY AGA.
The only really useful and informative thread about DIY AGA was Scolley's Big Kahuna tank.
I'm thinking of building my own AGA, except it won't be nearly as massive an undertaking. It'll be a nano-AGA, so it'll save on the cost, labour. I know that if I keep the depth shallow, then bowing shouldn't be a massive concern. As well, the materials should be easy and cheap to buy at any local hardware store. The glass can be thin. Most important, that if it leaks, not too much water will come out.
Scolley mentions that commercial grade silicon bonding is not strong enough. Where can I acquire industrial strength silicon?
Maybe even DIY All Acrylic Aquarium? What do you think?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
