Not talking about how you finish the out sides, just the under sides. I did that on a couple bases I made for a shed and a BBQ. I have never made a tank stand, lol. Just wondering...since if there isn't any chance of it soaking up water, it seems that would be better.

I watched video of a guy make his own aquarium, not that I need any more of them, but I was thinking of making one, either a cylinder with a flat base (so far haven't found a large enough diameter, looking for 10-12"+ or maybe 18" long x 12" deep. Just kinda thinking out loud.

Anyway it seems like it would be a fun project for a smaller tank, I would be too afraid for anything big.

The Harlequin Rasboras were very happy to get out of QT and get to hang out with their new school.

The Ram/GBR went into hiding and blends well with the plants so it is hard to find him.

Also think I found out my gigantic Purple Spotted Gudgeon is a male. From what I understand, they are opposite of the norm, where the largest most rotund ones are the female. The male guards and cares for the babies too. That was interesting learning, they are from Australia and are endangered in the wild due to loss/change of habitat. Though are easily bred in the home aquarium. Some people catch and breed them their, raise the babies and release them all back when they reach about 3 cm. They also generally grow larger in captivity, than in the wild!

A person can learn so much from 2-4am!

I put purigen in for the first time the other day and saw effects in a few hours. I have peat and drift wood so my water was a little yellow from the tannins and within 24hrs it was crystal clear. Great stuff highly recommend.
