last year vendors posting on the convention info section had their threads moved to the trading post.
apology was made by fishmaven (can be seen in the trading post "locked")
"For some reason some of you were moved from the convention thread while others by MY mistake were allowed to remain there.
You have my apology. I deeply regret that I did it improperly. Feel free to post your ads there now
to garner the best crop of pre-orders and Convention buyers. Again, I apologize.
the vendors are being moved again from the convention site and put into the trading post. this is very discouraging for the vendors. the posts are for pre-convention orders and the posts also add to the convention thread. please have whoever is moving the posts to stop and let the vendors have a chance of selling their wares, not everybody goes to the trading post.
Unless the wood is constantly wet (standing in water) there is really no need to protect it from average fish room humidity. I use 2x4 boards that are as straight as possible. On larger tanks the most import places for structural support are the corners. If I were building a stand for tanks that size I would us 4x4 at the corners with dado joints to attach 2x4 rails.
I discovered your stories with the wooden tank shelves on line and they were great.
I do have a couple of questions.
1, What was the size of the wood you used
2. What did you do to prevent the wood from rotting (do to the moisture)?
3. I am building some stands for (1) 72x18x20 tall and (2) 48x18x20 tall any ideas on
the size of the wood, how tall etc., also did you use a foam base on yours?
All the Best
