Thanks for replying Richard. I am actually getting a 75 gallon tank soon (and will do a make-over of my 30 gallon tank, which is also when I will empty the 30 gallon tank). Could I wait until then? I was supposed to set-up the 75 gallon tank actually 2-3 months ago, but I am constantly busy. This will be a heavily planted fancy tank, and it will need a LOT of time to set up and grow out, for which I really am too busy now. But I hope I'll have the time very very soon (2-3 months tops). Can I wait with the styrofoam this long?Richard said:Isabella, I'm afraid the answer to both your questions is yes.. without the styrofoam/polystyrene cushion between aquarium and stand, the glass base could be exposed to enough stress over time to crack.. a slab of styrofoam cut to the exact base-measurements of the tank, helps even out any irregularities in the supporting surface(whether it's a stand that is slightly off or a floor area slightly uneven), it cushions vibrations to some degree, and also helps conserve heat in a tank.
LOL, hehehehe You almost gave me a heart attack with this "Bella", lol ;D It always makes me laugh when someone calls me Bella, lol! Sometimes people do it on purpose (just joke around) because of my name (that is why I never really liked my name!).Richard said:'Bella, if you haven't had any problems in two years, another couple of months shouldn't hurt.
That's a good idea I think I actually should start one once I begin the set-up of my tank Also, it would be good to monitor its progress once it's all set-up and running. For example, monitoring the plant growth, etc ...atmmachine816 said:Also you gona start a thread for your 75 in the journal section, should be a interesting one?
