300 gallon Sherman Tanks

Postby Sherman » Thu Jun 02, 2016 10:47 pm

I just finished a pair of 300 gallon enclosures that will be headed out to two different builders on the west coast. I expect great things from these tanks and have a feeling we will be seeing much more of them in the months to come.
We all might get to have a little fun with these if what I am planning works out.
Stay tuned.

Awesome Chris! Are these made from that new aluminum material you showed me a while back?

These are made from the composite material that I have been working with. The doors weigh just as much (if not more) than the rest of the tank. They make the tanks incredibly light and pretty durable. It makes shipping large tanks or a batch of smaller tanks a reasonable option. I am playing around with some lighting options that might allow me to eliminate shipping glass entirely if the doors are sourced locally.

Does anyone have experience maintaining daphnia?
