We sell the small blue eskies at work for $3.00 each, I got my shrimp from Dean in one :) Your local Supa IGA should sell them.

If you are near St Vincent hospital in fitzroy, go to princes st entrance and there is a spot there where they dump all non toxic poly boxes for removal. Its been my source for a long time.

Check this place out .... in Acacia Ridge http://www.cartonwarehouse.com.au/

I got 2nd hand broccolini boxes - 345X245X120 for 88 cents each - no min buy unless you doing EFTPOS the there is a $20 min transaction!

I trim the boxes down by about 20MM in height and they fit into a large 5kg express post bag.

They have other boxes as well

Cheers

Greg

Hi Thanks Greg, I must check that out.

The dimensions of the boxes I can get are external 230X160X120 mm internal 190X 120X 80 I don't know if they will fit in the express bags.

      Great shot of Big Mama!  I reckon, 1 week tops for hatching.

      Great photo and news. The eggs are fading yellow but there are eyes so all looking good and there are a lot of eggs! Probably about half way ready to hatch.

      Let's hope the big mama can lay safely those eggs

      Sorry, I'm not in that area. 🙃   I prefer Glass tanks. Acrylic scratches way too easily. Often while cleaning algae off the sides. And once it's built up enough scratches, viewing gets obstructed.    Often going with LARGE tanks, you start to fall into custom built stands. So don't be surprised if you cannot find anything suitable.

      The easiest way wouod be to go to an aquarium shop and get a tank with a cabinet made for that tank, as that should be able to support the weight, as water in any large quantity is very heavy. I suspect it would have to be a glass aquarium at that capacity, otherwise the plastic would have to be very thick. It is possible to use a non aquarium specific piece of furniture but as you say it is quite risky, though I did help a friend do that by strengthening a nice decorative piece of furniture they had that they wanted to put a 350L tank on. It has been doing the job for 10 years but also bear in mind water marks, and we had to varnish many coats to make sure water doesn't soak into the wood etc. Its not really worth it in reality, it cost a lot of money to buy all the wood/stuff to strengthen it so was probably no cheaper, and a lot of time doing it. It may be dearer to get a combo tank and stand but much much easier and safer, and only you can know what ones you llike the appearance of? I would start off going to local stores and seeing if they have any you like, and even if not it will give you ideas?
