Get heavy duty wood, even if it is more expensive, because that flimsy cheap stuff is going to break! Hardware stores are always a good choice for supplies!

There are pretty good 5 gallon setups at Walmart for $30... but this one doesn't come with the heater.

There's also a pretty hot deal on ebay that gets you four 2g tanks for $45.

Craigslist can also be a great place to check out. I got my 10g, its heater, filter, hood, light, and some decor for $20.

Thanks everyone. My dad owns a construction company that I've worked for since I was 15 so I'm confident building it and supplies for the build itself aren't a problem.

I might have to check walmarts selection out, I never knew they had regular fish tanks honestly. And I got a craigslist add running, plus occational browsing.

It's been a while since i updated this since I hit some road blocks, but I've finally started my build. I just got the stand started, and tmrw I'm going to stain, add lights, and drill holes for cords and tubes in the back.

cameras have a way of distorting images at the angle you take them, due to how flat their lenses are, and the distance between them, but that structure doesn't look entirely level. Is it all just an illusion?

The floor its sitting on isn't level (it was poured before we bought the house and we assume it was a DIY concrete job) and it was just a quick shot cellphone pic so it doesn't look level. But it is level itself.

I have my 10 gallon split into 3, was going to do 4 but after seeing the result of the 3 was happy i didn't. Looks like just enough room, I think split 4 ways would be too small, but I guess it depends? Here is a picture of mine, only has 2 betta in it right now, looking for "mr right" for the middle

I finished the stand and got one of the tanks (5gallon scarlet badis tank) set up. I also I one of the 2.5 gallon tanks on the self in the pictures but it is just being set up. I don't actually have all the 5 and 2.5 gallon tanks (I'm only using those standard tanks) and I'm not in a hurry to get them because it's awhile away.

Anyway here's some pictures (1. sorry for the poor quality cell phone pictures, I should bust out the digital camera but I've been lazy; 2. It's level even if the pictures make it look differently)
