oh, well I am still new to this hobby, so don't shoot me. lol
i would have never thought to make a tank out of plywood what a weird concept..
I wasn't "shooting" ya. lol
and its not really that strange of a concept, if you think about the practicalities of its uses. obviously, you dont want to look at a plywood box in your living room all day. a plywood tank is great for a look down tank, a grow out area, rock curing bin, etc. As mentioned above, they can be built with a glass/acrylic "viewing" panel on one or any sides for that matter.
i built a plywood frag tank. i used regular pond liner in mine though since it was a cheaper option. worked great.
Yes, but it won't actually be in contact with the water.
Some kind of pound liner or epoxy sealant has to be used.
There are a good # of tutorials on the web on how to do it, I was just wondering if this new sealant would work.
It looks like it probably would not.
Even the manufacture says it's very toxic and flammable until fully cured.
I thought about that too.
Like I said I was able to get a 10 gallon into the area that I needed, so I never pursued the plywood rout, but I may someday still.
