Plexiglass Lid
    #3431284 - 12/01/04 04:15 AM (12 years, 12 days ago)

I have a 55 gallon glass aquarium that i plan on using for a fruiting chamber and im looking to add a plexiglass lid...

1) can i just drill holes in the plexiglass (and fill with Polyfil for air exchange)?

If not, how do i put the hoses for the PMP setup?

Any other suggestions with setting up an actual aquarium/terrarium...

i actually just cleaned it out. It used to be my iguana's cage but he is too big to inhibit it so he just chills on a table...

make the plexi glass lid, and drill holes in it to run the small air hose through, 1/8 drill bit will work.

i was plannin on adding 4 - 1/2" Holes w/ polyfil for air exchange (along with PMP), good idea or no?


Also, yea mines a 55+ Wide Tank. It should hold a good 16 cakes...

55 gallon and 12 cakes? What measures does it have? I presume there can be more cakes in there.
I think you can make holes in the plexiglass, you can try a red hot nail maybe instead to make em with.

good luck

a wtf, both even numbers! :lol:

There probably fit more then 20 cakes in there as long as the aquarium isnt too high..

My rubbermaid which is 1,3 foot (40 cm)* 2,3 foot (80 cm) has room for 20 cakes already. And then I measure every cake is 2 inch at the bottom, and there is 2 inch between each cake!

Yeah if the surface is the same then that would be so, but Im curious to the measurememts/size of the aquarium, I think it is longer than 2,6 and wider then 1,3. To say I think he has more surface area then my 20 cake (30 gallon) rubbermaid.
