    Why do you have lights on the tanks for 16 hours a day? Also, do you have any plans for the red tail when he begins to push 18+ inches? Surely you know 250 won't house him comfortably. I apologize if I missed these in your thread, skipped thru a bit of the reading

    You are taking very good care of your RTC, mine never grew quite that fast and I know it was due to my stupidity and neglect. Eventually I will have the means to properly house these beautiful fish.

    Good job!

    The monster tank will be built in place this has been done many times and should not be a problem. the mini mega will be nothing more the 4 sheats of 3/4 plyword plus or minus a pound so easy to move.

    Tonight I came home to find my fish "Angle" Has finally lost in her battle with a black fungus she has had sense we got her. She survived me learning about ph and how it effected my filters. 3 ich break outs over the years. All well keeping a 17 inch tiger shovel nose in its place at only 5 inches herself. You will be missed my little white terror of the deep.

    Well on to a much brighter note:
    I have all the wood and fiber glass for the tank along with other needed supplies at the total cost of around 200+-. So just need to get the wall done so I can get the corner done and paint the corner and move to build the mini tank. Once its made and up and running it will have to live in a plastic bubble well i work on the rest of the room.
