    Good luck man. I have tried to grow various CPs in tanks and they have variable levels of success. However, given the right conditions, I have seen some truly amazing tanks. What kind of CPs are you planning on growing in there?

    Well, it's still expensive to me. I paid $12 for that grate...only because they didn't have white ones. Otherwise i'd of paid $24 for a 4' x 2' plastic grate! Well, I'm just glad it works.

    I had a general idea, which I described in my post. And that's exactly my question!

    No, I agree, it is expensive. I was just saying that Home Depot's price must not be too crazy 'cause every price I saw online was equally as expensive. I don't know how they get away with charging $25 for a piece of grated plastic. Maybe there's some special manufacturing process behind it, LOL, I don't know.

    My thoughts exactly. But, I wasn't disagreeing with you, I believe it. But how they can do that?

    Supply and Demand?

    Oh, update. The heater works WONDERS. The air in there is actually tangibly warm compared to the outside...and if I cover the top, the whole thing fogs up and the humidity is 90%!...at night.

    So it raises humidity and regulates temperature. Cool!

    I have added some utrics and a genilsia. I think they'll like it! I also put some neps in there temporarily.
