I would personally use glass lids. I use them for all my tanks keeps evaporation down and keeps the fish from dolphin diving out of the tank if they are jumpers. acrylic ones can work too and might be better cause they don’t break like the glass ones. I have accidentally broken glass ones...
Took me time to figure out how to bring in the fish tank it had to go in the basement but bringing an 8ft 8in tank down the stairs and turning was not going to happen. So we had to bring it in by paying someone to take out a whole window to put it in straight to the basement.
The stand is...
For an arowana even a tank that big is small for them. I'm doing mbunas because that's the fish I already have so I'm just transferring them over so they have more room is 8ft long so they will have fun going back and forth
Finally getting to fixing up the tank that has been sitting in the garage for the pass year. It's 240g 8ft acrylic tank.
Will be painting it soon dark blue, couldn't match the overflow side wall so I went with the closes I could find. Will be building the stand and 55g DIY sump in the near future.
Looking for a strong reliable pump to run 2 air wands in a 55g tank. I need something that's reliable not something that in 3 months is going to be giving up on me. Tried tetra pumps but they all lose power, and can no longer supply the air i need.
