    Hi guys, does anyone have an old tank as a freebee or for small cash, that I could use for a new project?
    Target is to build an insulated tank for rockpool inhabitants.
    The bigger, the better as a big water volume doesn't heat up so quick. But 1.7m is the maximum. Height or depth is not so important. Scratches on glass are also not a problem. If it is really bad, I would replace the front screen. Stand for the tank would be brilliant.

    This idea bugs me whenever I look into a rockpool. I want to build a system, which will be insulated as good as possible as it has to be an energy friendly system, which should run without constant cooling by a huge chiller.

    Will do a thread here on MASA to share the build.
