Mine are on shelves.

It sounds like a good idea to get them off their tracks, I think I will check out the hard foam from computer box packing in the back room of our office, and if it looks like it will work, I will "dispose" of it Wink

I keep mine in the fridge!

They always need to cool off after a hard day of battling. geek

I have had my one Tiger sitting on tracks for at least 6-7 years and I can see no difference between that tank and one of my newer Tigers...

You wouldn't see any difference. They would need about over 40 years to see anything. You don't put your car on blocks when your not drive it and they weigh more scale wise.

But it would be a good idea to have block under them when plugged into a live battery.

Ya I know this thread is over a year old, but I didn't want start a new one, so there! Razz


I was a Home Depot the other night and came across this 3 Door Wardrobe.
It's a good size ( 71 5/8"H X 48 1/4"w X 20 1/2"d ) and thought it would be good storing my tanks.
I currently have them all over the family room and this would protect them from my young kids and bouncy dog, plus the wife won't complain so much.

I could add some extra shelves where the shirts are hanging. It could hold ten tanks easily, so what do you guys think?

The Home Depot near me had them for $116 + tax.

You could put a lock on them, but it wouldn't be hard to break in, the back is wood simulated cardboard.
