    The one that rescape a few tanks early the morning and a few during the day and a few at night.

    But @f-fish no point in rushing. Doing it day by day

    Ha ha ha, only because I get it so wrong so often, every little bit of exercise helps.

    That size stand has some serious potential ... 600mm is just right for a nice tank collection and working area. Are you going to see if you can find a counter top of sorts - that should increase your options and improve durability should you have water spills etc.

    Later Ferdie

    Just used the last piece of counter top the other piece was 1.2m by 600.

    Going to put one chipboard that has malamine on. My desk has been standing for 3 years with water spils and everything.
    Just need to make sure i cover the edges properly so that no water go in on the side.

    Probably oil buildup from fish food. What's your surface disturbance like?
