    Manchester 29 gallon stable

    Decided to move my seahorses into a larger system. Going to do a peninsula 29 gallon.

    Just finished the stand. Hope to get the tank filled this week.







    Need sand and some lights and I'll be good to go adding a second pony pair.

    Sweet! ! ! How about a pic of the current horses and tank.... Do you use a chiller or do you let it get up to mid to high 70's?

    Yes each switch will be wired. One for lights, one for filter, one for power head, and the fourth might be hooked up to either a moon light or the skimmer.

    Love the Steampunk theme stand!

    Dude lol this is awesome! Does the pvc support the tank or do you have something hidden that is doing the bulk of the support?

    I'd be interested in the long term strength since it has foam core vs PVC. Your design skills are unparalleled. Lol put a smoke machine so that it pours out of the pipes!!!!

    Yeah I was at first nervous about the pipe. I don't have any individual pieces longer than 9in. So I'm hoping that will prevent any possible bowing. It has eight points of touch in the ground and will be supporting no more than 400lbs

    Some of the tiles need to be removed and glued on again but that's very easy and minor
