Twin 75 gal into single larger aquarium
I have two 75s and want to combine them into a single larger aquarium. However, I think I may run into an issue.
See, my first idea was to just take the back off of both and silicone them together, but I'm next to certain having twin side glass panes wouldn't be a great idea. So, that leaves me to potentially taking them completely apart and using only the front and back to create one pretty massive build. That would be cool.
Another idea I had was cutting the front and back panels in half, turning the side panels so they were a bit longer than taller, and making a couple shorter yet wider aquariums. I would need to match the height of the front and back to the current width of the side panels, of course, but don't know if I could actually get two aquariums from it.
What I would like to know, am I correct in my assessment of it wouldn't be a good idea to have twin side panels? Also, assuming the second idea yields two aquariums, which would you do?
I'm going to use these aquariums to raise young crabs when the breeders breed, and I can always silicone the four side panels together for a smaller aquarium if I do the first idea. The smaller aquarium using the first idea could potentially be a sump/refugium for the larger front/back aquarium where it'd act as a filter while providing food for the crablets.
Any advice would be appreciated. I will post pics and updates as this build progresses, but need some advice first. Thanks!
