HEY VERY NICE TANK.
Can I ask u a question.
I'm planning to get a 125+ gallon tank and I want to put it in a room with wood floors. Wat would you recommend I put under the stand to help distribute the weight of the tank.

any help would be thankful.

All of our tanks are in the basement so I have never had to worry about that.. A tank that size will weigh 1400 lbs..

How do you 'save' new borne from canabulism?
scott peterson » posted 2007/11/30 11:59 pm
You put the female in a tank by herself before she releases the fry. if you dont have that option you can buy a net or cage that hooks on the top of your tank and put her in that.
