Yeah my brother in law owns his own Aquarium buisness it’s called. “reef in the city” if your into that world give them a look. They do amazing world class work. All custom and have clients all over Canada. He’s a master plumber and electrician. I only know a little from being around my sister and him and all their people. They are all fish or reptile hobbyists.I hope you or he has experience drilling glass. Not sure if the panel side or bottom is tempered or not. If it is they are a bitch. I run salt water tanks and most of use use polyethylene or polypropylene barrels for RO and salt mixing. Most of the guys I know do exactly what Duggan did. Build a platform for the main holding tank and spigot the bottom.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
Plants look killer. I love this time in the grow. I get impatient about it but it's a good feeling to open that tent and look in there at those beautiful plants.
The weight may surprise you if those mid level buds are hard little buds. On that 4x4 grow I showed you I got some really good numbers.
That 35gal and 50gal Rez he has with the fittings were used but salvaged for use somewhere else and they were polyethylene like you mentioned. I just said ABS or PVC Cuz I couldn’t recall that word lol. Matt (broski) would likely want to backhand me for such insolence
The glass should not tempered but we know how to check it. I know what you mean tho it if we’re it’s a beotch.
What size salty do u have Sam? And what kind of corals or fish do you have in there ? Anything cool? in his personal tank at his workshop behind his house he has a 350gal and some of my fav pets live there.
My best bud in his tanks are a Cow Fish ( hope that is correct ) it has bumpy horn like head and the coolest eyeballs. He’s really smart too and can even swim backwards I believe. What I like about salt water species is they have soul. They show intelligence by just looking into their eyes. They interact with people and have moods and character.
Other favorites are the hawk fish. There is some really cool rass also. And the little crabs that have fins. They sit on the corals and fan water by them collecting any small particles of food. If I ever have the time and $$$ i would love to have a nice display tank.
The largest tank he built and services is 1800+ gals. It was made with two 9ft long X 3.5ft tall and wide rectangles joined together into a L shape. All custom cabinetry made from Corian it looks like Quartz but is much cheaper and lighter. This tank is owned by Fielding Enviornmental Services CEO. Really nice guy. He’s only worth half a Billion lol. I often stop by this buisness to see how the tank and it’s occupants are doing. They recycle used paint from car manufacturing plants and use chemicals to separate the liquids back into useable goods. They also make a bi product in this process that is a fuel and is very efficient apparently. The Gov buys and uses that. Idk mad stories to share about all his clients. Could go on all day
Here is some shots of the “Fielding Tank” Enjoy and have a great day
Above shot is through polarized lens. The phones all have sapphire lens so without this they will look super blue as u probably know. So sorry for any blue pics. these pics are when the tank was operational for about 10-12 months. Now it looks a lot better tons more fish. Corals etc. He also built a custom room to operate this tank which is separates the board room to the main hallway of reception. This gorgeous tank is amazing to see in person.
Yellow Tang cruising around. Nice little anemone with one of those cool crabs sitting beside it.
My buddy the Cow fish.
