Hi there, Recently my parents brought a new Television because the old one had finally had enough, so I've taken the old one and pulled it all apart and I'm just in the planning stages of trying to put an Aquarium inside the old frame. Very Happy

Just wondering if anyone has ever done something like this before. If so, what troubles did you have etc. Otherwise just feel free to comment or share advice!

Thanks,
Boydy

Thanks for your reply uLtRa, since you said that I've actually done some more research and I found a couple of links related to achieving it or people that have done it before.

If you or anyone else is interested, have a look at these:

How many gallons are we talking here? If under 10, you are limited in selection compared to a larger size, somewhat.

Yes, I am very much limited by size Taratron. The tank will have to be custom made to fit and I calculated that it will be roughly 30Litres or 8gallons, so larger fish are out. But at the same time I'm looking for something a little more interesting than your common tetra or guppie.

Glitch the idea of a breeding tank isn't a bad one, I actually hadn't considered that yet because I was originally planning for a full-colour display tank. However, I'll keep my options open now. And yes I had seen that piano tank before - It make's me so jealous, but I suppose I can only start out small and maybe one day I'll get there Very Happy

If you want color just breed a really colorful fish Like blue or gold Rams. They have a lot of color and look way cool too. Cool

Too bad you can't just skip to a piano but 'all good things...' blah blab blah ect.. Remeber if you do too good a job, all your friends will want one. So don't try to hard at it OR get rid of all your friends first Wink
