Anyone ever made their own acrylic (or glass) tanks?
I've been researching it for a couple of weeks, many different sites, and I believe I've got all the information that I need...theoretically. ;) What I'm interested in now, is personal experiences...sometimes those can tell you a lot more than any DIY guide on how it's *supposed* to go! ;)
I've got a Lowe's here that carries the plexiglass in the correct thickness, and they'll cut it for me, and I know where to get the proper sealant/adhesive and the directions and all that.
My basic problem is that Bettas like a longer, shallower tank, and I need a long, NARROWER shallow tank. So, about 12 inches wide, three feet long, and about 15 inches high, so that everyone is happy and I can fit the thing where I want to put it. I'm looking to create a 30 gallon tank for three males, divided. So, I thought about a DIY aquarium...
Anybody ever attempted/any experience there? Just because it sounds feasible on the websites, doesn't always mean that reality follows the directions. ;)
Thanks for information! :)
