Grrrrr

Just had to vent -

I cracked a tank last night - Bulkhead too tight. Freshly painted, no water in it yet.

Guess it could have been worse.

No Chris, this was a "big" tank. 12.5g over a 5g sump.

It's a nice tank, rimless and rounded front corners.

I'm supposed to consolidate 2 of my 5.5g mantis tanks (only one mantis).

I just called Willow Ridge Glass to see what a drilled replacement will cost - $45 for a 3/16" pane and drilled for 1" bulkhead or $30 undrilled.

I may just get another 10g temporarily

Ouch, that's a bummer.

Did you turn your 46 into salt water yet?

Negative on the 46 - Have one last freshie in it to go - Nice angelfish, anyone want him?

If I decide to stay apartment bound another year, (have to decide by March), I may bite the bullet. Knowing that I might possibly move is barring me from really pursuing it now.

You need to come by and sometime see the new peacock mantis and his setup.

The tank I cracked was for the smaller green mantis (smithii) that currently lives in a 5.5g on the bar.
