An idea has struck me to potentially cure my want for more fish, despite the space and financial situation I am in.
I have been thinking about buying a 4 pack of 27 gallon storage totes. I know these specifically can hold water very well because they are very sturdy. I use one to hold my RO
Water and there is no flimsiness whatsoever. Unfortunately, for my budget and quality they only have black for color instead of clear.
What I would do is install two HOB
Filters on two of them, and then for the other two I would install sponge filters.
For the heating, I would get some 100 W Heaters. But will that melt the plastic?
For the lighting I would buy approximately 16 feet of LED
Strip Lighting that is waterproof, and rig it so it will work with the set up.
Other than that, is there anything else I would need, or would this even work? The bins all come with lids if needed. I would like to breed some Lemon Jakes, Otter Points, and OB Peacocks in these. I would put one trio or a proven pair in each bin.
Thoughts, comments, or suggestions?? I really hope this could work. If you know of any other additional supplies that I would need, please do comment!!
