Aquarium Forum A forum devoted to aquarium fish, plants, techniques and fish keeping as a whole. en New member<script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript'> <!-- --> </script> Hi everyone, I have just registered today and would like to introduce myself. I am married to a very understanding woman and am about to retire in 12 months time and can't wait. my other hobbies are On30 model trains, r/c model boats both surface and submarines and photography. I have always had an aquarium except for the past 20 years and finally have convinced by other half to get another one. My most successful one was a 4ft marine tank (fish only type) but have also done freshwater tropical. My biggest decision will be whether have another Marine or freshwater tropical. Cost will come into the decision, and I will be sticking with the 4FT x 2FT x 2FT tank size and everything will be new. If someone can help me on the size of steel tube I would need to use on this tank for the stand I would be ever thankful. I am thinking of 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x .10wall tube Peter Webster 2014-05-27
