My question to all you large tank owners: What did you do to make sure your home/floor can handle the weight of a thousand+ pound tank before setting up a tank there? SO i have been pining after a 125g (72"x18"x20") for a while, but I'm too frugal to buy new.. and to consider most of the used ones sold on ebay/cregs. But I thought about it today... If i get a 125g will my floor be able to support it? Just tank+ water (full) is a whooping 1400 lbs! That's excluding stand, equipment, substrate, hardscape.. which I'd say adds another 200-300 lbs at most (assuming the use of a lot of large rocks). I'd be setting this tank up in the finished basement (assuming I can fit it down the stairs). Its an old home I think built in the 50s? I'd be placing the tank on the carpeted concrete slab in the basement.. I just don't know if that will be too much weight and cause foundation issues.
Hi Koko guys! I just wanna ask if any members here lives on the 2nd Floor? Or has their aquarium on the 2nd floor of their house? I want to upgrade to a 40g breeder but I am skeptic with the integrity of the floors. I don't want to end up having my aquarium straight down the 1st floor I currently have a 29G right now.. I haven't had the chance to ask the maintenance crew or the landlord regarding the capacity of our floor.
Hi - me again For the first time yesterday I decided to weigh my fish (reeeeally should have done it months ago). I know my fish Bubbles is a big girl but I didn't actually realise how much bigger! To put it in context I got my three fish Bubbles, Nessie and Scooter at the same time from the same fantail goldfish tank at my LFS. The shopkeeper said that they were all born this year. Bubbles was very slightly bigger than the other two so at the time I just assumed she was a few weeks older . When I weighed them yesterday Nessie came in at 17grams, Scooter at 18grams and Bubbles ..... 77grams!! . So for a fishy that is not quite a year old yet I was wondering if there is any way of telling how much bigger she is going to get? Although she is a fantail I'm starting to think I may need to treat her space wise as a common goldfish and allocate her a good 100 liters or so in any tank she is in. This picture was taken a few weeks after I got them. This is Bubbles now I'm sorry for the awful photographs, I'm really rubbish at taking photo's and should have really taken some while they were being weighed If any of the Mods feel this topic should be posted somewhere else please go ahead and move it - I really wasn't sure of the best place to post it
I want to introduce you all to Pickles I decided a friend for Googles was the right thing to do... I met him weeks ago and although there were other fish perhaps more beautiful, this one stood out for me. I have a feeling he won't be too dominant for Googles either. I weighed him today- 9g! how old do you think he is? He was sold as a lionhead but want to check with you guys....
I think I have had my little white ranchu now for 2 weeks. After everything I have gone through with Googles, I am paranoid that something is going to go wrong with Pickles too... I was wondering if I could please have some advice on food amounts and diet and anything else that I can do to help prevent SBD. - I am doing between 50-80% weekly water changes - He is on a diet of SG and Hikari pellets which I pre-soak I don't think my scales are accurate enough to weigh out 1% of his body weight, so would some one be able to tell me how many pellets I should be feeding daily? He weighs 9 grams I fed him 15 pellets earlier and he ate them in under 5 seconds! He acts constantly hungry and nibbles all the time at the pothos roots! Thanks guys
