Cabinet suggestion for Tank.

Postby migs267 » Mon Dec 28, 2009 7:22 pm

I am in a process of considering a 225Gallon Tank, but I need suggestions in terms of "safety", a wooden cabinet OR a concrete? personally, I like the wooden cabinet, but, this is 225Gallon, baka masyadong mabigat at bumigay?

Wooden if constructed properly with the right wood thickness and necessary bracings hinde bibigay UNLESS matamaan ng bukbok (wood boring insects) or termites :P

Personally if feasible ang concrete, I'd go concrete. Problem is, once it's made it cannot be moved! :P

Thanks, next step would be, look for a qualified carpenter, I have seen a guy making cabinets at the back of Cartimar, might visit one of these days, yes you're right, thickness and necessary bracings.

Reasons why I decided to get another tank is for me to enjoy some fish, and fish only, so far, I have 75Gallon for corals and clown fish, 2 tang, pipe. 1 clam.


Thanks Bro.

HAHA, yes worry ko nga paano ko isasakay sa jeep ang 225gallon tank and 75gallon sump kung kukunin/bibilhin ko sya? gusto pa yata mag dala ako nang tao ko para isakay sa jeep/pick up, heard it needs at least 6 people to do lifting.

Yeah my 125g took 5 people as well. hirap na hirap talaga. What more a 225g which is more :)

Go concrete, I think you wont be moving your tank (225g) anytime soon.

Do a lot of planning and visualization of the location first, will save you a lot of trouble and headache.
