You are exactly right on all accounts!! 48x18" shelves and fronts were made by FCA.Nice setup - I assume it's a 48 x 18 shelf? Also - FCA fronts/tops - or did you make them yourself (or none of the above)? Sorry if I'm asking dumb questions - trying to come up to speed as quickly as I can. John
Wow, wish things were that cheap around here. I have only seen 10 gallons for $8-$10 and then 20s are $40.Iv bought some of my 15g tall tanks at Petco for $18.99
My warping has been very minor, less than 1/2 the thickness of the acrylic. Nothing I would worry about, there is absolutely no gap on the door. Paul also changed the handle on the front to help stiffen the door. Instead of the little handle he used in the past, he installed a rib, or brace, that acts as a handle but is the length of the door front. I think it keeps the door warping to a minimum.do you have any issues with warping?
I'm sorry, I didn't answer becuase someone else said where they found them.Where did you get your 15 gal tank? Thanks.
I believe you can drill the glass and install a bulkhead or drain. What I did was leave the front of the viv (closest to the door) as a pond. The cool thing is when looking at the viv from the front, you don't see substrate --> just nice clear water. I also found that since I have a water barrier between the door and "living space", FF will not be crawling on the front of the glass. So to drain, I take either a turkey baster or extra pump and suck the access water out. I have to do this about every 4 months with my setup (takes about 15min).How do you drain the verts with the FCA fronts and how do you mist? Hand mist? Bummer...... Can you drill the AGA? I thought it was tempered.
