Well I was thinking that maybe I could make my own tank sometime in the future! So if I do that then tell me if this sounds ok for my list of things to buy:
For the tank itself:
Aquarium Silicone (to seal the corners,bottom,ect. of the tank to avoid leakage)
For the lid:
Well honestly i dont know how to make a lid with a light (me+ electrical work= disaster) so i will see if somebody online or whatever would custom make one.
Paint (is there a specific type or brand i should use that would be safe for the stand and won't harm my fishies?)
Thats all i can think of. Tell me your thoughts,tips, and advice please! And if any of you have built a tank before if you could give me a basic how to that would be great! And one more question: How do you measure things out so you know how many gallons the tank will hold?
