I'm thinking about cutting off the top 2/3 of the top all the way across, or maybe just cutting huge windows in it from the front and the sides, and then I can get at the tank for cleaning, wouldn't ever work to hold many fish again, but would be better for a fat frog This would be my back up tank, after I build my big setup with the pond goop stuff. I would at least leave the bottom tube intact, and maybe just cut the front but leave the sides on so he feels more safe? ideas? I already have the water set up to only go to the one side, so its dry on the other side. Its just such a pretty tank, I hate to sell it to get rid of it, but I don't see myself keeping anything but fat frogs in the near future if I had tree-frogs, I'd of course keep it the way it was... please any info would be appreciated, bought the dremmel to alter it today

I think you should get some fat tree frogs! Like Whites Tree Frogs, that would be a cool tank for them!

Is that a glass or acrylic tank?

he he, ya, wife said no more frogs though LOL so I made the first cuts today on the tank cutting out a big window on the front so I can access for cleaning

here are a few pics of what I did so far,,, made my first cutout, one thing I could do, is close off the tubes and make the right tank a fish tank, left the frog tank, but I think it would drive my frog nuts to not be able to get at them in the tube.... here are the pics

yup, but I learned early on, that means revenge later on, I"m no dummy LOL. I think I may be able to talk her into a dwarf pixie, I want the bright yellow belly ones LOL, maybe I'd put it in this tank? or maybe my little girl giant pixie. I'm going to put a black rubber gromet material all around the cut out, so it looks like it was made that way then make the other side match for now. Next I need to get the tubing to move the wate from the top to the bottom, or turn it way down so it just trinkles. dont want it shooting water onto my floor.

just found a way to seal up the outside edge nicely thin rubber tubing from the auto parts store... 1/4 inch fits over the edge and makes it look like a nice continues edge with the 1/4 inch think black top
