    I want to hang my water change supply from the floor joists above my sump ... would be neat to tap a 3/4 bulkhead along the bottom edge of a sidewall in a 10 gal AGA walley world special tank. Will the glass take it? Anyone done it?

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen of The Reef Tank. After much mental debate, I have decided to attempt the task of authoring a build thread to highlight my new reef system that is currently nearing the final stages of development. I have always enjoyed reading through so many of the awesome...

    Alright, I asked this on the other site. No one was too positive, and I only had a couple responses. I have a 190g, thats only 20" tall. I want this in the extra bedroom we have in our house, rather than our converted garage, which is now another extra room. The side bedroom is lifted off the...

    Well, who am I kidding? It was bound to happen so why resist? Over the last few months the wife and I have talked about what would be my summer project this year since she knows that I HAVE to have something to occupy my time otherwise insanity sets in. I told her that my plan was to teach a...

    i bought a 16x80 mobile home. I was wondering will it be able to support the weight of my tank, or do i have to do anything special. I looked underneath and it does have 2 large I beams running the total length of the trailer, positioned about 2 feet in from both outside walls. Would i have a...

    PLEASE HELP!!!!:doh: This is the second time this happened. My overflows just quit draining. The first time, I turned on the return and the tank overflowed. I stoped it, but there was about 20+ gal of water on the floor. Tonight I was adjusting my tunzes and came to my PC and it overflowed...

    Hi everyone! I'm living with my father at the moment and our fishtank is currently in his partially finished basement. It's been there for a few months now, but now there seems to be precipitation on the floor in his media room, enough to cause the carpeting to be wet. Has anyone has this...

    Hey all. I have a general question about tank weight. Just moved into a 3 story home, and the main floor is on the middle floor with the garage below. I am looking into a 90 gallon (maybe 120?). Will there be weight concerns for me here? What do I need to look for "IF" i can see the beams...

    Does anyone think that a 50 gallon tank with a 20 gallon sump....approx 1/3rd full.....would overstress a floor? I'm paranoid because I live on the 3rd floor of an apartment. I don't want to wake up one day and find that the tank now resides on the second floor.

    Anyone that can help me with this question? I have a room with a whole wall covered in brick with a small fireplace in the bottom left corner. We never use it and it has a hearth running the full length of the bottom of the wall. It's a considerable waste of valuable space in this room. My...

    I've had the tank up and running since February. It is a new 90g. The sump is in an adjacent closet and it is 29g. I was feeding yesterday and noticed that the water level wasn't even. So I took some measurements and this is what I found. The tank is now 3/32in lower on the right side and...

    i've never had a tank more than 55g and my house is 100 years old... would i need to worry about the floor handling the weight of a 75g tank? it would be somewhere around 700# at least, filled and running. how would i know beforehand, just to be sure?

    Hi All I'm not sure that this is the correct forum, but I'm sure that the thread will get moved accordingly. I'm looking to build a new tank, all glass, and was leaning towards a cube between 36x36x30 and 48x48x30. The tank would probably stand in a corner so I'd only be able to access it from...

    as some of you may know, I have a problem where whenever I walk near the tank, the tank exhibits a back and fourth motion. My dad throught its was vibrating/ flexing beams- Today I was told by a member the beams will break if flexed too much. My tank is 29 gallons and sits on a wood stand...
