DIY Mad!

Our friend crazyrich as planted a dangerous seed in my mind - build a new, bigger tank! I then read Susan's very helpful reply and went to the Krib pages, and then onto the page above and then to the articles on.... wait for it.... wooden tanks (with inset windows)! Wooden tanks - now at first this seemed like a crazy idea, but given some reading and the realisation that the area where I put my tank in the house is limited in width so I would need a custom built glass tank anyway, I thought what the hell, the loaches will love me if I build them a 200G tank (and if its a feature of the room my wife might even go for it).

Has anyone here ever used/built/seen a wooden tank? They seem too good to be true, easily built to any size, only need one sheet of glass. Whats the catch? Alistair.
