Ply wood DIY aqurium

Postby seb421 » Sun Aug 14, 2011 12:10 am

Any one on here done one?

tank I want from ND aquatics is over a grand, sure it will look sh*t hot!! but that's over a grand before ive put so much as sand in it

been looking at these plywood videos and some dont look to bad

looking at the ply on B & Q should cost about 100 quid for a 6 foot, plus what ever is used in 2x4 as well

my only concern is how much it would cost me for a plane of glass 6 foot x 2 foot x 12mm in opti white had a look on goggle for a price but cant find it anywhere

Best thing to do is always ask your local glass place. Prices change so much from area to area. When I have sourced glass for vivariums before my local can be as much as £15 cheaper than one a few miles down the road etc.
