    Hello guys, Im going thru this idea about useing old countertops to make a racking cages. Was thinking of makeing a 120 gallon about 6'x3'x16" bottom and two 40 breeder about 3'x2'x12"size encloseres above it. Leaveing enuf room for lights on top also builtin pools for them, also being able to take them out for cleaning. Do you guys and ladies think that the flamika is ok with them being on, alsois this a good idea?

    From what I remeber(ex homedepot slave), they cover press board with Formica. So it should work, just make sure it's sealed very well or any moisture that gets under will make the wood expand and puff out.

    Correct Ill be sealing with calk at the seams. Probably the laminite, I can also get a pvc sheets that are only 1/8" thick. Not sure if im going to do slideing doors or do a drop door.
