    If so, how many tanks do you have and what have you done to protect the room and walls with regard to humidity, temperature control and air flow? Do you run any backup UPS batteries? One of the things that I'm concerned with is, what if I leave for a week and the power goes out and one of my...

    Hey guys, Total noob here to the forums. I'm located in Australia so kinda hard to find info on this so far, but I'm looking at making custom decorations and props for tank set ups (for a friend's birthday and personal use). I am planning on designing the item in clay and making a mould to then...

    Hi everyone this is my first post. I've got an idea for a project, and I'm not sure how crazy it is. I'd like to use this copper planter and glass canister to create a patio pond. The 1 cup measuring cup is just there to help with size referencing. The planter is 15" high and holds approximately...

    I've always wondered if it was possible to paint them a different color... I know there are some high temperature paints that you can buy in spray paint form, although, this would mean that you would have to open up the light fixture, take the guts out, and all that other stuff, before you start...

    Hey guys, I recently set up a 15g with a single betta. Plants are jumping back after melting, and everything is coming along nicely. What I've been noticing is that he has been swimming back and forth taunting the sides of the tank. He doesn't flare, but i know he can see himself. I have...

    Here's a fun game to play after you've finished your tank chores: I'll post a picture, then you try to draw it and post another pic before someone else does. Then someone will try to draw your pic and post another, and so on. Rules for the drawings/paintings: *You may use any medium you like...

    Ok, so I fixed my broken center brace with Devcon Plastic Weld Epoxy. I also used plastic coated wire with stainless steel clamp sets and zinc plated turnbuckles to be extra crazy and super safe. It is a 55 gallon tank. The last thing I want to do is cover the epoxy so that it can not leech...

Im thinking like, what kind of paint should i use?? Will it seep through the glass?? Is my tank even glass or acrylic?? If...
  9. The Lounge & Introductions
    I just got a graphics tablet, and I was trying to break it in by drawing some concept art for my tanks. Problem is, I don't really know how to draw the plants. Any tips? Sorry if I put this in the wrong subforum. It didn't seem to fit anywhere else.
  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi. I am in art school, and I would really like someone to give me a really great photograph of a fish I can paint. Either one fish or a bunch, or a school, in a planted tank. Preferably a clean set-up with a nice composition. Post pictures please! Who knows, maybe I'll do many! Thanks! Clare

    I'm upgrading from my store bought 10 gallon typical tropical tank to a 55 gallon DIY-ish tank. I'm going with a Texas theme for starters with live plants and ornaments. The problem is, I'm not finding the ornaments I want. I have several items I'd love to toss in, but I'm concerned about...
