My 300 Gallon Project Reborn...AGAIN... (PIC HEAVY)

Recommended Posts

Plywood tanks are actually one of the oldest forms of custom large tanks. I first read about them in "The Marine Aquarium Handbook" & "The Marine Aquarium Reference Guide" by Martin Moe. I'm proud to say that they still adorn my bookshelf to this very day and taught me so much about the systems of the past and how to learn from simplicity. Before I was injured I was planning to build a very very large concrete tank which would have been a very new and different experience than working with wood. Maybe some day with the help of some dedicated friends I can realize my idea.

My interest in marine fish got me my first job in a pet shop when I was 14 then I found the reptile section to be very interesting and that has grown into my life's work. Please let me know when you are ready for that Piebald. They are much cheaper now and will continue to hold their current value.

I'd never heard of plywood tanks until this thread. If it works, it works!

As for the piebalds, I noticed the prices dropped, but they're still gorgeous and so different. I was looking at your website the other night after I found this thread and I must say, that coral glow ball python...outrageously gorgeous!

Are you getting all your captive stuff from TCN?


Yes all of that captive stuff so far is from TCN. I want to watch those and if growth and health seems good then I'll start gathering other stuff.
