$80 at the hardware store. It has enough room for four 10 gallon tanks per shelf, and it has 3 shelf spaces for tanks! (four shelf spaces total) It also has a weight capacity of 4,000 lbs (1,815 kg). A birthday gift from my mother. I guess you can say she approves of my freakish hobby. Laughing






As you can see, I already bought some more tanks. I wonder what I'll put in there?

Hmmmmmmmm.... Chin Scratch

Anyways, I'm gonna customize it little by little over time. I have non-slip surface liner on each shelf, but I need to put a lip around the edges just to be safe. I'd also like to be able to have fluorescent light fixtures to simulate daylight. I'm really into the whole recreate-the-environment setups, and sunlight is all part of the environment. By the way, I'm going to write a [HOW TO] in the near future. I think you guys will really dig it.


Hope you enjoy!


Have a good one



Patrick

Nice shelf. I have 18 various sizes of deli cups stacked around an IR bulb at the moment. I'm jealous of shelving.

Nice shelves.

Good idea with the non-slip shelf liner. You'll also want to secure it to the wall to prevent it from toppling over during our next earthquake.

Good call, that. You wouldn't want scorpions running free amongst the debris if you can possibly avoid it.

Congrats on taking your hobby one step closer to sheer insanity. Before too long you'll have two or three of them. I have three racks and I'm constantly tempted to nab up a fourth. Oh, if only I could expand my living space...

@Envyizm Hahaha. My collection is growing faster than I thought! And for only $80 I wouldn't mind getting more in the future.

@Shakudo Thanks brother. Smile
