I'd like some input on using this as a beginner homemade tank. Until I can learn more and become more proficient, I don't really want to drop 3 or 4 grand on a "real" tank. I'm planning on doing mostly small projects for the time being, so the size should ok. And I know that the inside would need to be painted (which is no problem). And I'd also like some ideas on making my own baffles?? Just pretend that I don't know anything (which isn't far from the truth).
