    Stand vs radiant floor heat

    I have electric "in floor" heating in multiple rooms of my home. I understand, and know first hand, how it heats. I also know the heat will build in areas that aren't able to vent. I do not have issues with the temperature of my tank. I had hoped that someone that had similar circumstance...

    help, 40 gallon breeder glass type

    I've started a 180 DT and I'm hoping to use a 40 gallon breeder I got from petsmart, for its sump. It's their brand called grreat choice and I've called everyone I have access too, as far as what is available to me...anyway, I need to know if the sides are tempered or just the bottom and if...
