Hmm, where is everyone? :P
So, I decided at least on what I am going to do with the 55g.
I am going to on one side transfer everything from my 20 gallon long community tank (in my siggy) and with the other 1/2 of the tank I am going to divide it up into 4 sections for four Bettas. I do have a few questions though for people with experience with larger tanks (or for anyone who can help out really).
1.) I am looking for a stand for my 55g, but since I am on an extremely tight budget I was wondering if I could use 2 of these, side by side as a tank stand for it. I already have my 20g Long on one and it fits it almost perfectly. Only like less than 1/2 an inch of the tank is hanging off the sides of the platform.
here is the link for it:
and here is my 20g Long on it:
So, if I put 2 of the "stands" side by side, could that be adequate to support the 55g properly? It looks to be almost the correct dimensions at least.
2.) I have the heater from my 20g long which is Visi-Therm Stealth 75w for up to 25g. I also have 2 other heaters, a 50w and another 75w older style Visi-therm heaters (which I am guessing work). Should I use all three to heat the tank or only two? If so, which ones and at what temp. should I set them to so I don't overheat the tank or have it too cold? (I am going to spread them on both sides of the tank to create more ambient heat rather than hotter on one side than the other)
3.) Anyone know of cheap 55g dividers I can buy from somewhere or how to make them for cheap? I am extremely inept at being handy so if there is a relatively easy way to make them I would appreciate it. :)
Well, thats it for now. :)
I just need to buy another filter (cus I have one only up to 20g), a hood, the dividers and the stands. and the stuff for decorating the tank of course!
