    I know this has nothing to do with fish but i will be moving my 29 gallon bio cube some where else in my room!!! And i know everyone on here is of great knowledge and some one probably could help!

    Okay i decided i am now 16 to old for my "T" Shaped bunked and i would be redoing my whole room. Its full of crap and i hate the color and i just need more room and a new start! this is what i am looking at getting but in black http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Serta-Tuscany-Futon-Bed-and-Frame-Package/2655291/product.html?rcmndsrc=2

    What i am doing is painting the walls from yellow to a Light blue (Picture #1) i have a example showing my window with the blue paint added by Photoshop and still showing the ugly white/yellow color.

    Now i need some help with this!

    I am looking for more Beach/ island furniture and it has to be cheap!! I would like to get a Futon because getting one would increase my room sized by "75%" :eek: plus i can have a couch to sit on ;D Does anyone know of any good island furniture or beach style i am addicted to the ocean and well its my life ;D

    have you already painted you room? reason for asking is bc earlier this week someone painted a room where the fish tank was and the tank crashed. So if you havnt done so already seal up your tank as best you can b4 painting. the link below is the thread. theres some good ideas for sealing your tank..

    you wont like sleeping on a futon. the 'matress' will crap out in a couple of months and you will sleep like crap and be sore every morning. I did that one and never again.

    Agreed, it's nice in the beginning, but the mattress gets harder and lumpy and uncomfortable. Don't worry about painting either, my tanks in my basement I've painted it twice without covering my tank. I didn't use a spray method though and used latex paint. I believe that tank crash came from refinishing hardwood floors which is very different.

    16 year olds can sleep on concrete and not feel a thing when they wake up :lol: I say get whatever bed you want. You can easily replace the futon mattress if it becomes uncomfortable.
