PostPosted: Wed Oct 25, 2006 9:10 am Post subject: Finally ...... I built my own tank !! Reply with quote

 I  was  planning  to  make  my  next  tank  by  myself  for  a  long  time.  It  would  be  my  planted  tank  Surprised)
 Initially  I  thought  of  a  30x18X20  (l  b  h)  tank  of  6  mm.  But  I  could  not  get  6  mm  glass  in  any  of  the  20  shops  I  enquired.  It  seems  6  mm  supply  has  been  stopped  completely  in  Hyderabad.  So  finally  I  decided  to  have  24X18X18  in  5  mm.
 Yesterday  I  got  the  glass,  silicon  and  my  dad  to  help  me  out.  But  I  made  terrible  mistake  by  not  getting  the  Silicon  Gun.  Actually  shop  keeper  told  me  that  I  don't  need  to  have  the  gun  for  such  a  small  work,  just  pushing  the  tube  from  back  will  enough.  I  trusted  him  and  later  realized  that  a  push  may  be  enough  if  it's  by  a  King  Kong  !!!!
 Anyway  after  a  long  struggle  I  finally  made  the  tank  completed  in  almost  1  hr.  It's  still  drying  and  will  test  it  with  water  in  1-2  days.  Till  then  lot  of  Butterflies  will  be  there  in  the  stomach  !!!

 Very  nice,
 Take  pride  in  a  well  done  job   Thumb Up   I  repaired  a  3  foot  tank  last  Thursday.  The  instructions  on  the  silicone  said  2  days  until  fill  and  7  days  until  it  is  fully  cured.  I  decided  to  wait  until  this  Thursday  to  fill  check  it.  Is  this  what  your  silicone  says?  Will  it  still  cure  when  filled  with  water?
 Did  you  take  any  pictures  of  your  assembly?

 That's  a  job  well  done  mate...   Thumb Up  
 
 I  do  have  built  a  tank  before...  but  not  before  stripping  them  twice   Chuckle  
 
 But,  the  time  and  money  spent  was  worth  when  we  see  the  tank  up  and  running.   Give  a  pat  to  your  back  yourself  dude.  Thumb Up

 did  you  go  to  the  proper  market  for  glass  in  kolkata?  it's  very  surprising  that  6  mm  glass  should  be  unavailable.  go  to  old  china  bazar  street  opposite  tea  board.  that's  the  big  market  for  glass.  get  whatever  you  want.  everything  is  available  there.  they  will  cut  it  and  polish  it,  even  bevel  it  if  you  want  infront  of  you.
 actually  12  mm  glass  looks  the  best  if  you  can  afford  it.
