Building a photo tank

Unread postby sunny » Wed Dec 03, 2014 4:54 pm

Can anyone help me out on where I can buy a photo tank, or how to make one ?
Or buy a super small ADA tank, where there is no gum sticking out of the side joints

Something of my interest here.
What do you wanna photograph in the photo tank? What kind of photos do you wanna take?

you could actually buy a flower vase shaped like a cube. have seen a few on sale in places like Big Bazaar, the home decor section. rather good quality glass.

These types of small tanks are available at Laxmi Nagar.

If u r taking close ups of fishes then the gum sticking out from edges will not matter as they wont come in picture,,,,,,, i have seen frnds using v narrow tank for this purpose ,,,,,,,, they only put fish there to take close up pics

there are many videos on youtube to make a clean looking tank.. using a superclear glass is much recommended for this purpose

I wanted just like the one the hydraforum, less space for fish movement, plain blunt pictures of fishes, but nothing there mentions how to make the tank...

Go to a glass shop. Buy glass for a small tank which would measure approximately 6"x4"x1" (or 1.5" depending upon your requirement). Then use a small/thin syringe filled with silicon to make the tank.
There are a gazillion videos on youtube on how to make a tank. Or go to an LFS and ask them to make one for you. You will get it right in a few attempts if you wanna do it yourself.
