I had to move in with my dad when my health went downhill. He put a limit on my tanks too. 10 gallons total (not a fish person). Think if I end up getting lucky and winning one of BB's awesome tanks, I might be able to convence him to let me set it up

Actually I do have quite a bit of experience with this topic. You can buy overpriced repackaged aquarium specific 100 percent silicone on the Internet. Or you can just buy regular 100 percent silicone at the hardware store. Dow Corning is a good brand highly recommended. What I use is GE silicone 1. The most important thing is it doesn't contain any advertised bio guard, or mold mildew resistant. I've used door and window ge2 also. Once silicone dries all the chemicals evaporate off. Let it dry for a week if possible and give a good rinsing before filling.

Really???
That is TOTALLY awesome! I bought this one: Is this one safe? If I seal it tomorrow, it will sit empty until sometime this weekend.

That one is Perfect. Used it many times. It should be cured by then, but put it someplace warm and dry.

Hey Hey, didn't we talk about this derailing habit of yours?

It's a Komodo Dragon.

How did you get a Komodo Dragon? Aren't they illegal and endangered? Also, don't they have a lot of harmful bacteria in their saliva?
Anyways... I LOVE your tank! :)

.... oh haha... you were sarcastic....

WOWSERS!
I admit I just skimmed and looked at photos....

LOL Everytime I visit this forum I shake my head and wonder how I have kept 14 fish alive....

If I had to make a tank I would be calling my Tupperware lady.
Inept barely describes it LOL

The wall thing is a much better idea than the teacup size ones that sell like hotcakes all over the web. Not perfect, but better than those unheated, nasty evil little 8 ounce hells.
Practice makes perfect, trial and error....but that trial is much better than the crap set ups I see on people's desks at work, etc...
Its an encouraging start! :)

Very true! I did a search on wall tanks for bettas and found these TERRIBLE mini tanks that were small, nasty, and unheated. The poor fish. At least THIS designer cares about the health of the fish that will be spending their lives in his invention. Kudos to you BB!
