  • Guess what I got for free!

    So I was at my dads looking through his PVC for a DIY co2 reactor and he asked if I wanted to walk over to one of his neighbor's to see his tank. I said sure and off we went. The guys tank needs some serious help I chatted with him about lending a hand. Then he gave me his old 29 gallon tank for free! Glad I didn't buy the one I was eyeballing last week!

      I think I'll just swap it with my 20 long.

                Did it come with a hood and stand?

                  Nope..just the tank. My 20 long has the same footprint though, so I'll just swap everything from that to the 29 and be done with it!

                      Well they are actually reptile tanks and the back glass is about 1/2" shorter and the glass is a bit thinner. It even has a warning on the bottom about the glass warping if it's filled to the top. I've been wanting to replace it since I got it. lol.

                        That's better. Haha. Wouldn't want the glass blowing out.

                          yeah keep the 20!! congrats on the free 29.

                          You could always just use the 20 as the tank for a fluidized bed and then get some glass panels at HD or something to make walls in it.

                            Nice score on the 29 gallon. The 20 gallon sound like a good riparium tank .

                              Well it's done! Finished it up last night in about 2.5-3 hours. Everything looks so tiny in it!
