  1. Send me a pm with what your looking for.. Ill get you a quote if you would like.. We have cell cast and extruded acrylic in any size you want.
  2. Im about to build a 85ish gal acrylic tank... 36x28x20.. Out of 1/2 acrylic. I work for a plastic company and am able to get it at a good price. Just make sure you get your acrylic sheets trimmed and squared. Our cnc saw here holds a tolerance of .030 Hardest thing for a DIYer would be flame polishing.. Gluing is not bad, acrylic changes color when the glue is applied, so its pretty easy to make sure you glue the whole seam.. My advice to you.. Go to any plastic company close to you and ask them for scraps of acrylic. Every one of them have gaylords of scrap material. Go home and start messing with it..
  3. Man I used to work for a painter during the summers while I was in college. Oil base now days is only used outdoors, and still then very rarely. Your house is going to smell to high heaven for weeks if painted with oil base. My fiancé and I just repainted our kitchen with latex paint and that was a month ago and it still smells like paint in the house. Not sure how that oil base is going to affect your tank but I can promise, y'all will be catching buzzes a week or so after its all done And the only reason he probably is using oil base is so he can cover that wainscot in one coat as opposed to 2 coats with latex. As stoned said I would def not have oil base going on the inside of my house. Ive painted a ton of houses and that oil base gets you crazy lightheaded. And that was painting it outdoors.
  4. Thanks for the info. Only reason I was more set in bta was being such a small tank

  7. i had the tiniest bit of cyano when starting pellets.. i used microlube bacteria and within a few days my cyano was gone.. i do still have a little bit of green algae on a few spot of my overflows and back wall but each day it is getting less and less.. i read alot of threads with people using mb7 and having problems... i use ecobak pellets by warner marine and jon warner the founder told me he uses microlube... not sure y people using mb7 are having algae problems but there are a ton of threads out there about it... im not saying if you start using microlube your problems will go away but i have had good luck with that brand.. i have 750ml of ecobak pellets in an smr1 reactor with a maxi jett 1200 powering it
