Re: [APD] Planted tank in a room with wood flooring
When I installed my 120 gallon tank in my family room, with an oak
floor, I planned ahead to eliminate the possibility of big water
spills. I put in hard plumbing and valves to make water changing spill
free. I made my stand so the tank sat in a recess that was relatively
water tight, with a drain hole in the middle and a tube from there to a
sump under the tank, which had a drain hose permanently attached to
drain outdoors. The result was that in about 4 years with that tank I
never had more than drops of water spill on the floor. The sump drain
worked the only time I had an under the tank leak in the filter
plumbing. It was well worth the effort.
