    Default Sammie's 90gal Turn Over Tank

    Ive been wanting to do this for quite awhile, setting a tank up like the ponds in the trop.
    Over the last year, i have been getting what i needed to do this CHEEP. Oh ya Sammie is a Severe Macaw (a non stop ball of motion) and the set up will be in her room. As i go i will keep a running tab of the costs.

    The 50gal on the floor is a "junk tank", what happens in there happens. Ive been filling it with the water out of my main tank, a 50gal breeder, and if the Turn Over doesnt work it will be the sump for that tank.

    no pics yet dont no how to put them in

    1. mounted a 57"X24" 2"angle iron frame with 9, 3" lag bolts
    2. cut 1, 2X4 leg
    3. set Formica top on

    cost
    1. $0 work
    2. $0 left over from building a shed
    3. $20 clearance at lowes

    $20 day 1 total
