HI so, the concern is not that the tank will go through the ceiling lol Its more physics and the pressure exerted across the floor.
The people above have said they don't know how many joists or the direction of them. It may work but you have to factor in risk. Water damage is expensive, do you...
So I just went through this myself. How did you figure out which directions your joists go? In a rectangle house the joist usually go from front to back long ways.
Your tank is freshwater so the weight will not be as extreme as a Saltwater (what I am doing with a 72bow 20gal sump). I built the...
Me too I love teaching people and I find most are willing to accept help! I love talking to the kids too, if they try to stock something too big I use analogies they'll understand and the parents understand too, so it makes it easier!
Fish are great! I love getting people into the hobby and...
HI guys! So Right now I am setting up a new 20 gal Plated tank^^
This is my 30!
So I moved my Aq. 50 to my 20 long so it should be insta-cycled, I added nite-out too.
My plan is
- Pair of Bolivian Rams
- Cardinals or Pearl Danios 6x
- Panda Cories 8x
- Bleeding heart Tetras 6x (maybe)
I work at a Corporate store and an Aquarium right now. It's so crazy how things are different place to place! In the Corporate store I am the Saltwater Specialist bc the Freshwater guy can be a bit silly >.>
I really don't understand why so many things are on the market. Goldfish make a...
that's gorgeous! I just ended up with a 72 bowfront bc the place I got my tank drilled shattered the 55, I just have to make sure my floor can support it! It would hare the wall the bathroom uses, so pretty sure its the load baring wall, gotta check blue prints.
if I can et it up ill look into...
My stock coral wise are Hammers, FrogSpawn, Xenia pompom, Zoanthids( removed larger colonies 2 nights ago clown was picking), GSP, 2 Clams, and small Acans colony.
No aerosols, being was in my room, went to work returned at 5, everyone swimming, returned 730 everyone but banggaI dead
oh sorry 36 Gallon Bow Front
What I don't understand is I did a WT yesterday an everything was fine,
0,0,8.2, 1.026, 420, 8dkH mag 1360 temp 79
All my Corals are fully open no mouths gaping and my BanggaI is still here!
I did think it was weird that the Astrea snails are staying towards the...
Came home ad my TominI Tang, Shrimp and Clown were dead!
I was home at 5, everyone was fine, came home 7:30 everyone is dead.
All my corals are fine, open no gaping.
Ammonia is 0
Nitrite is at .25, which was 0 yesterday, I'm wondering if this did it or the pH swung?
Nitrate less than 10...
Even more so in Saltwater. Theme: Nothing good happens fast!
and depends on the setup too. I cured my Dry rock for months before, cycling them in the process, when I set the tank up it as pretty much ready to go off the bat.
Minor phosphate and nitrate leaching but it stopped about 3 months...
