Yeah that was tricky - I originally tried to perch it on top of the milk crate but quickly realised if I turned the tank upside down - it would neatly slot over the top of the crate - didnt even need my bungey straps

But its hard to Brag when my international Bros make my attempts look amateurish

Did you run out of heavy sinkers for your diy marker floats

Well the answer is here.

Although rocks take up about 4 times the space of lead - they're cheap and you dont have to inhale lead fumes to make them

Had to get the Jig saw out to cut a groove for surf rods but now they can take at least 30lbs of pull instead of busting at 8lb

Is that a table, esky, live bait tank, or an acid bath for dismembered body parts?

Its a one off custom creation with a multitude of uses.

But my current plans are to turn it into a pond.

It all started with buying a $30 fish tank to brighten up the office.......

But gold fish out grow small tanks in under a year - I used to give them to a bird at work who had a huge pond - but she left.

So I started scanning junk piles for bigger tanks.......

But that wasnt a permanent solution either - and it only took 45 mins to find out that Yabbies and Goldfish dont mix - even when you provide a chill out room......

Here she is with the wood treated and a few plants chucked in - early days, but once the lily wakes up and the reeds on the right come back - it should look pretty sweet
