  1. hi all I recently purchased a 3 tear setup that has 2 3x18x18 tanks with it. And then i purchased a sump for it which is a 22.5x14.5x15 with a 3500lph aquaclear sump pump. I was wondering what is bulk head would be best for this setup? And what size holes will need to be drill for them? Thanks in advance for you advice/ input Cheers dave
  2. What type of tank is it??Tropical, African, American? Is it an internal or external weir? Need some details..... If its planted put some plastic mess around it and put moss on it, if not then do as suggested get some black acrylic.

  8. My first was a 3x18x18 display with a custom built stand that i made 5 yrs ago, Then it went from just one to 3 then 5 then 10 and then the 17 i have now, The largest being a 5x2x2.5
  9. Ok this is what i do Grab ya self a tin of ESP(easy surface prep) get a cloth and put some on it then wipe the tank down with it Let it dry for 1 1/2hours Then get yaself a litre(1litre will do at least 6 tanks with 3 good coats)of Water based Matt black paint(doesn't have to be expensive) and a roller apply your first coat let to dry(I have found that it is best to do it on a hot day with good airation) then do your 2nd coat and see if there are any hole/spot you missed. if so do a 3rd. I have had the best results doing it this way And when finished should look something like this and this is my end result I also painted the sides
  10. that could work nige, i like you thinking but do you think oscars would move the gravel away from the bottom? Thanks for the really good suggestion :0
