New tank.

Recommended Posts

Guest Ferret1959

Seems like I have won a reet bargain on Ebay.

6' x 2' x 2' 10mm glass tank. :D

 

The chap is even building me a stand for it.

I'm just wondering how much it's going to weigh with coral, rock and water in it.

 

:lol:

Not quite sure mate ...

 

But I'd get some stronger joists under those floorboards !! :rolleyes::rolleyes:


The Older I get .. The better I was.

Funny thing is I live in a first floor flat. :lol:

 

I had a six footer before but not so big.

Worked out about 3/4 ton.

That was on a shelf in an alcove.

 

This is similar to the one I'm getting. :)

Hi Dave, my old marine tank was roughly the same size and from memory I think it went just over 1 Ton when fully loaded with all the coral sand and living rock.

Hope you have that floor well strengthened, hate to here the people below you getting a free shower. :unsure::blink:

I think the floor is strong enough.

Just hope it never springs a leak while I'm out. :)

I made mine myself. All held together with silicone (Dow Corning). It realy makes certain muscles sqeak when filling it up. I was getting ready to do a runner before the other half got home if the glass went. :rolleyes::o .
