Re: [APD] Re: Lights for new tanks

Acrylic doesn't have to get very hot to become bendable. A
hairdryer won't do it but a heat gun will.

If you use a flame, the tick is to apply enough heat to
reach the point where the plastic will bend without
surpassing that point and cause the acrylic to start to
form unsightly bubbles.

Fun stuff to work with.

Good luck,

A little over 1 month to go. The deadline for submissions to the AGA Aquascaping contest is September 15. What are you waiting for?

Entries are only $5 and for that half a sawbuck you can have your AGA entry automatically entered in the ADA (Aqua Design Amano) contest for free, a savings in time and shipping costs!

Share the fun; show your work.
