DIY Setup Journal - 2x20 Gallon + 75 Gallon Tanks

This is really more of a DIY project than anything else. Also a journal of how my tanks have come along. So over the span of the past couple weeks I bought two gorilla racks. On the middle shelf I cut out some 2"x4"s so that the shelf can better support each 20 gallon tank. I then bought insulated styrofoam, cut it to fit the back and side walls of the rack. This is my attempt to see if I can keep some of the warm air in the tank area. Then on the front I bought a $6 clear shower curtain and some velcro which i applied to the shower curtain. I cut the curtain to fit the rack on the front so that I could see in and that the warm air could be held in. I then painted one of the sides all black tonight. Need to finish the other side tomorrow, I will post pictures later.

This sounds interesting. Can't wait to see the pics of this and how it all comes together.
