Stainless Steel Tanks.

hello, I am new to this site and up to now do only saltwater and reef tanks. but I have been wanting to do a planted tank and have 2- 100 and 1-55 gallon chrome stainless steel tanks just waiting for something. I see no problems using them , Can't really on salt tanks.And I have CO 2 system on my reef tank Calcium reactor that I think I can hook up to the two tanks. If not I may check into the DYI CO 2 set ups

Sounds like a stainless steel trimmed tank to me. I don't see any reasons why you wouldn't use it on a planted tank. About the CO2 system. All you have to do is add another needle valve and you should be good to go. Really, if you have well established reef tanks, i think you'll pick up on planted tanks really quickly!

Those SS-rimmed tanks have actually become fairly well sought-after. I've been looking for one in my area for quite some time. For some of us not-so-young folks, I think it makes for a really cool retro look.

I have a 10, that is on my list of things to do (test for leaks, re-silicone if necessary, and plant. Very tempted to make it my office tank - of course it is hard not to silly-scape one.

I was lucky to get these from a old breeder that no longer is breeding fish anymore. I got 2 100 gallon and 1 55 and may get more , I have already had offers on them. But I love fish and tanks . I will set them up over time. But I have saltwater now and am building a phywood nano for my wife. I will keep everyone updated on these as I get them up and running.
