Re: Grey Mantala for false Bottom
Thanks for all the good advice! FWIW, I went through Aqua Mart (I found the recommendation on DB somewhere) and it was under 50 with shipping for enough for one or two tanks. Black was even cheaper but they were out of stock. Will report back once it arrives.
My first tanks used false bottom material because that's all I knew to use and I guess I just like the natural look/feel of that better that eggcrate--and as Captain Awesome says it seems like it moves microfauna a bit better. I'm not going to build a lot of tanks (heh, I'm on #3) so I guess I feel like my initial build budget is not my biggest concern--once it's up and growing I'm going to enjoy it for years so it's worth it to me to invest at the beginning stage. But if I was building out a bunch for breeding etc. I totally get it. Lots of good ways to do things!
