    Picture frame glass tank build

    Oh yeah definitely not serious… yet if I build it and it actually holds water I’d subject it to a few extra stress tests and let it sit a VERY long time uninhabited before I even thought about livestock. Also I’d probably used some sort of plastic for the bottom, but maybe I’ll pick the frames...

    Picture frame glass tank build

    Simply put. Because I like trying stupid ideas and seeing how cheaply something can be done… also because I’m currently stocking the picture frame aisle and they’re starting me in the face

    Picture frame glass tank build

    So this is probably a terrible idea (not as bad as the last, thanks again everyone who let me know I was about to unwittingly poison myself) but I work at a dollar store which some really nice size picture frames. Anyway I was thinking of taking either four 11x14 or 8x10 to make either a 9...

    Fathead minnow tank.

    So I’ve been thinking about keeping a native species for a while and I was curious how many (if any) fathead minnows you’d put it a (almost) five gallon tank. I know they’re kept in absolutely atrocious overcrowding at bait shops and maybe living in five gallons with just five friends is better...

    DIY 4.8gal betta build

    Took me a while but the tank is almost finished! I’m ordering a light and and starting the cycle in a few weeks. Planning on culturing some black worms during the process (I might get a pygmy sunfish colony instead of the betta)

    Well second leak test revealed another gap. Pretty sure it’s the last one. If it is I’m buying the plumbing later this week.

    DIY 4.8gal betta build

    Glass isn’t a bad idea though may not be practical with the box. I’ve learned that it’s slightly bowed in the middle. I’m actually leaning towards flex seal clear. From what I’ve read it’s safe for fish ponds and is relatively cheap. Also progress update. I just put on a mineral oil finish and...

    DIY 4.8gal betta build

    Custom silicone ing a pane over the front with a hinged top piece to keep the betta from jumping but allowing for maintenance. This would be black water with a thick growth of floating plants and while by no means to scale the below sketch should demonstrate my basic idea.

    DIY 4.8gal betta build

    So I was going through my grandfather’s garage again (the contents of which he left me when he passed in ‘14) and I found this awesome old whiskey crate. The base interior measures 8.25”x11” and I found that I could have a 12.25” tall display area while having enough space to reach in for...

    Reputable alien betta breeders

    So I’m trying to find a reputable place to buy a betta similar to the one below. (Image removed) I did some research into the vender and well even the Better Business Bureau didn’t have very nice things to say. Mind you I don’t have the tank fully assembled yet so I’ve got plenty of time for...
