I want Amazon to hurry up and give me my money for the games. I won't have as much time to be setting up tanks and all that next week because of school. Plus I want to dry start the hairgrass which could take a while.
I guess if you made the stand big enough to put a 10gal or so on top and then a shelf a little lower for the 5.5gal. I just learned from experience not to make the bottom shelf so low that it's only a few inches off the ground. The gravel vac won't work if you are trying to empty into a bucket or anything higher. The 29gal is on a shelf below the 55gal and I have to open the garage door and drain it down the driveway.
Yeah, I guess that does make sense lol. I want the stand to have two areas where I can put tanks, that way it would save space. O think the stand I got from my friend would actually work. I just need to decide what tank to have on top.
Yeah, also, I always like to put together my own stuff, then I don't feel like I am spending my money on something I don't want. I am planning on building a stand for the 5.5 gallon after a while, for now it will be where the 10 gallon will be.
Its fine, DIY sometimes needs to be tested to make sure it works, it will just mean no CO2 for a bit.
The rumynoses have super red noses lol, the pictures on the Other Fish they look washed out.
Cheaper to put together your own system too. I remember waay back in the late '90's when the only way to build your own system was to get the pieces at a computer show. Now those computer shows are obsolete and you can get everything at Best Buy or Fry's. Ugh. My first laptop was a brick that had less memory/hard drive than a not-so-smart phone and it cost me $799 used at a computer show. Died within 6 months.
Sorry about your c02. But I'm sure you'll get it worked out. You seem really good at DIY.
And honestly, I'm so happy the rummynoses and endler are happy with you. It makes me feel so much better than if I had sold them to a pet store and not known where they were going.
Update on the fish I got... The rummies are awesome, the love the tank and school together. They eat like I never feed them, it is so awesome, when I feed the bettas their pellets, I feed them after I feed the rummies (NLS betta pellets) the rummies steal the pellets! I feed the rummies mid water usually by sticking my fingers in the tank and dispersing the pellets and the bettas on the surface. The endler is getting comfortable now, he swims in the front of the tank pretty often now and doesn't get chased. I finally got him to eat a pellet yesterday and 2 today. It is sort of hard though because he is afraid of my hand over the tank. He is doing really good now and his colors are amazing!
I would never buy an Alienware just because I would rather customize the computer to my needs and get whatever I wanted, but I would also need someone to help me build it lol. I would get a job first, then a car, then a gaming setup.
So I have a leak some where in my CO2 system, I am thinking it is my bubble counter bottle because when drilling,a piece of the sealer thing on the cap came off. So we had to silicone it and the silicon got in some of the threads. I am thinking about using a Gatorade bottle instead as it would give me more area for the drills. It would just mean a setback with the Co2 which is fine.
