My idea that im going to try next fall is locker shelves. At least around here, every fall they have the cheap plastic "stackable locker shelves" they are free standing and i think they might work well. They hit target in august, and they are usually still there in september.

I am saving up for a larger tank and blueberries.

I cut a plastic cutting board to size, drilled 1/2" holes halfway through. Cut pvc pipe legs to hold it up. Took aquarium sealant and glued a rock ledge across and stones up the pillars. This gave them the ability to climb up and across. I kept extra shells there.
