Building a rack question

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of building a rack and would like to know what distance to leave between the top of the tank to the bottom of the shelf above for ease of cleaning catching fish etc.

If you are going 3 tier you have to work it so as you can still get into the top tank below the ceiling .

I use 6 inches what ever that is in mm .

I have 2 3 tier racks that hold 6@ 36x15x18 tanks each that have 8 inch gaps and in most modern houses the top tier is not able to be used .

Just a warning !

my current racks range from 150 to 350mm i would build them to a min of 200mm especially if you plan to get in the tank(breeding/cleaning) often

Thanks everybody for your responses.

I hadn't thought about the height of the top tanks but as they will be 2ft X 1ft I think they will be OK. Will check though.

The configuration that I am going to use is 2 X 3ft & 1 X 2ft on the bottom, 1 X 3ft, 2 X 2ft & 1 X 1ft on the middle & 4 X 2ft on the top. Will have to do some planning to see how this works.
