How much do you suppose that tank will weigh when full?

Still a sizable tank...biggest I have ever had was a 12 gal...and I copied a lot of your ideas when I designed it...

I don't have a tank going now and I donated my whole set-up to a 1st grade teacher in the church before we moved. I miss having a tank, but I would want it in my office at work and that is a no-go.

I am trying to figure out 5 to 8 gallon micro tanks that I can customize and trick out. Then see if an Emergency room will let me put it in the waiting room just for fun. Fully functional and transportable Aquariums of coolness.

That's a big tank. Great work.

I could really get into fish tanks. I chose not to because space was at a premium around here. But in Texas, now that’s a whole other thing. This is why I love CPS. You fellows give me good ideas. :)

I had a ten gallon tank when I was kid. I left the heater on one cold winter week. . . That was the end of that. :(

The only aquarium I ever had was the tub from an old washing machine in our back yard, full of water, coontail, alligator weed and perch from a nearby canal. My friends and I had our own mini fishing tournaments there in the back yard.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)
