I especially like your light hinge idea! I think its going to turn out great!
You should have come to the Antique show last weekend at the fairgrounds! It was an extremely slow show for me. It would have been fun to have someone to talk to. I grind, polish, and repair glass at the shows, and got into the show last minute. No one knew I was going to be there, so no one brought me work to do. I ended up spending the weekend grinding on Geodes and granite chunks making marbles out of them just to look busy.i Live 20 minutes from syracuse ny. =D Great diy tank. Good luck.
Ok.... Tank will be planted El natural..... Community tank with Cardinals, Endlers, Kuhlies.... (open to suggestion, but these three are definite.) Still trying to make up my mind if I want to use that monster piece of driftwood that I've got. I'm thinking that since the backdrop is very coarse in appearance, that piece of wood is going to be too big. (Plus it's not going to leave me enough room for plants.)are we planting this tank? is there going to be fish? are we getting any new pics? im so confused at what this tank is going to look like.
:tea: Here's to you, intothenew for you inspired me to write a journal in the first place! It's official. Tank's coming up tomorrow. One day late but there was just too many last minute details to take care of.Hey Cuz, have one of those cold bottles of glue on me. I think I'll have one on me too, in honor of your birthday.
Awwwww.... So sweet of ya Gipsy......Aww, crap no. I was all ready to bake a glue cake in my easy-bake topped
with imported Wisconsin cheese & FedEx it to ya. Guess I'll have to study
for my three tests today instead.
In the interest of "telling your friend the brutal but necessary truth" I'm with Zapins on this one.Yeaaaa glue isnt going to fix that Such a large tank will put a lot of pressure on the glass walls so I doubt a sealant will hold it together safely.
HA!!!! That made my day intothenew.....I might best clarify my comment. I intended the glue for consumption by the Master of Ceremony, not the object of mourning.
Post a list. Most of what I have is grow-out at this time.As mentioned before i will be using a topsoil base
and following the "au natural" route. I am not opposed to DIY CO2.
(I added it to my little 2.5 gal tank and now I can SEE my fish and plants
and the lotus just went absolutely bonkers.)
So ummmm..... Uhhhh.... does anyone feel like sending out trimmings?
I'm fairly confident in the strength of the repair. I'll find out in about an hour if I can get the garden hose unfrozen. (20 degrees here this morning)that may work i fixed an acrylic tank that way with a piece of plastic
Gipsy.... you're awesome....Post a list. Most of what I have is grow-out at this time.
Marble size Marimos
Cryptocoryne Lutea; two-leaf to 2"
Radican Marble Queen top: harvested about two weeks ago?
About 2.5" diameter
Future availability: Ludwigia arcuata
Gotta be up-front about this Ludwigia; I bought three or four stem bunches,
nice and full. Transplant shock got them, they lost their leaves and
littered three tanks. In disgust, I only attempted to save the stems
showing promising top growth and at least a tap root.
Of those saved, they are jammed into the gravel up to the new growth
& putting down new roots along the bare stem junctures. S l o w going.
