I've done a lot of research regards the plywood tank builds & while its been really interesting & inspirational, its also left me a little confused. I'm wondering if its worth all work & the hassle, to eventually save what might be very little,in the end. Might do the same as Bas & just go for a glass one. Have today spoken to a company that stocks the West Systems Epoxy resin. What with the costs of this & the glass, i'm wondering how much i'm really going to save. Plus there's the added worry of the plywood tank leaking. At least with a glass build i'll have some kind of guarantee.
Only problem i have regards a glass one, is having to cut a bigger doorway into the stud & timber clad walls of the fish house. This is to enable four people to carry & place tank on its stand (only have a single doorway at present). Another downside is having to close down two tanks to do it, as they are on the wall i need to cut doorway into.
