Look at the price tag!! I could buy one heck of a tank with $700+.

Pretty darn cool though.

I have a dead 21" CRT that I have been saving, with an aquarium in mind...

Maybe one of these days I'll crack it open and get to work.

Maybe a 21" nano reef!!!

(Oh actually that's 20" viewable nano)

Hmm... pair that up with a hollowed out ATX tower for a sump....

hehe

would the monotor stand be strong enough to support the weight?

thats a good question man.....

OK... remove the circuitboard and tube and all that junk and then calculate:

I think 21" old crt weighs about 60lbs so, 55lbs of thats tube, wiring, boards.

plastic shell = 5lbs

new tank glass (flat screen of course) and water est 8 gallon capacity plus other stuff, minus rocks water would be approx 6 gals, 6x8=48 plus glass est 10lbs plus rock/sand maybe 40lbs?

Sooo.. probably around 100 lbs?

Hehe... the stand would probably do it but might be not that trustable.

A reinforced stand would be in order huh!

Good point.......

Yes, I subtracted 2 gallons because of substrate/live rock. 8 gal cap but -2gal worth of substrate/LR=6X8 = 6 gallons times 8lbs.

I shoulda clarified better in my scribbles hehe
