Default PVC Board tanks

Is anyone on here still using PVC boards to build tanks? I've been doing some research into building my own and wondering how the others are holding up. I haven't seen any recent threads. Just curious why there was only a handful of these builds a few years ago and then it stopped.

I have these three PVC tanks in my frog room, and after @ 11 years, they are holding up great. REALLY like them.

I've built a couple of them recently. I don't have them setup up yet, but the construction was way easier than plywood + epoxy and more economical, too. It's pleasant to work with. It goes together real nice. The only special thing I found was that you have to put the joints together quick before the cement skins over. It's also important to wipe away excess cement because it will burn divots in the board.

Your thread is the first one that got my attention and is definitely an inspiration.

Thanks for the tips!
