  5. Ok so I have the tanks to build a breeding rack but looking for some stands for the rack or cheap 25x25 steel to build own stands. This is my quick drawing to show how I am setting up. I will be using or wanting 3 separate stands as it will be easy for transporting and moving if needed. The stands will need to be long enough to fit 2x 2ft tanks long and 450mm wide. The stands together will make a length of 12 ft or a little longer. So if anyone has some stands this size for sale please let me know or other wise where I can get some cheap 25x25 steel. Thanks Anthony

  8. Hey guys these are the led light boxes ive started building, these photos are for a 10x4 tank so they are 3 meters long, they can be made any size ready for you to add your adhesive led strips, cheap alternative for lighting. great for big tanks as you cant buy lights this big. also great for your breeding racks as its cheap on power and you can light more then one tank with one light box. if your interested pm me , they go for 30 bucks with open ends and 55 dollars each with the ends capped. anyways heres some pics, great price guys considering its industrial kitchen grade stainless steel.

  24. G'day everyone I am hoping to start makin some stands for myself soon but am unsure what size steel to use. The stands will (i hope :worry: ) need to hold a 6'x2'x2.5' on the bottom and a 4'x2'x2' & 2'x2'x2' on the top. The bottom isn't a problem as I can add a few extra supports underneath. But I would like to avoide putting an extra brace between the top and bottom as that would get in the way of the 6'x2'x2.5'. (I hope I am makin sense :gurn: ) Could someone please tell me if 50x50 box with a 3mm wall will support the 4x2x2 & 2x2x2 without a sopport in the centre? Or should i use 75x50 with a 3mm wall? Would REALLY appreciate any help with this :upsidedown cheers jono
