You don't need a nail gun man .. Hand nail it! Get a nail set if you want to fill the holes and sand..orrrrr get some nice brass screws and give it the industrial look!

Haha nice! I love it. It held through the night so it's good. I gave it a kick test and kicked it a few times in different spots and it didn't budge

On the key ring of course! Now I just wanna wrap it and add some doors. I'm thinking about adding my 20g under it and make it a sump for this tank! Been a while since I made a sump

thatd be cool! I like the idea of using buckets as bio chambers, someone posted a pic of it on here somewhere. That'd prob be the best for fluffy when he starts dropping adult oscar bombs twice a day! Ps they had a really nice looking tiger at Petco the other day. I could have sworn he was trying to swim onto my shoulder!
