Going barebottom, tips/tricks/advice (clothes not mandatory, ;) )

Where is the least expensive place to get starboard ? I am going BB with my 90 so I need to know where to get them.. How should I measure for it? Do I tell them to cut before shipping or I have to do the cutting myself? How is this done?

Tom I am thinking the same thing. If you find where to get some, would you consider sharing/splitting up the order (save on shipping for both of us).

I am tempted to not put starboard down since debris still accumulates under the starboard and around it, would this be a mistake since I don't plan on any rock falls? My new 30 gallon BB is just SO..... clean, I now want my 120 that way.

Sure, shaun.. It's always great to save some money. But to be honest, I think a starboard is much more safer than just having glass. The 90 gallon I got, is the 1/2" thick, and I still getting starboard to lay it out. Better safe then sorry..

Beside, I can cover the equipment underneath. No distraction from looking down the tank .

I got cutting board from china town for my 120G, I paid $20 for 24"x18". I bought two and put it on the bottom with siliconed it. So far so good.

Kris come over to the sand free side.

Why do you want a litter box at the bottom of your tank?
