can I keep my aquarium on carpet? If so please give me reasons why.
To repeat what they said, depends on the size. I think 40 would be the largest I would go, but that may be pushing it if it’s very unevencan I keep my aquarium on carpet? If so please give me reasons why.
One very important issue that I think should be considered is whether or not you're renting or you own your home. I'm sure a lot of landlords would seriously frown on this practice. Long term water exposure could easily lead to extensive and expensive damage, both to the carpet and the sub floor. It also may be forbidden by your lease if you're renting. Depending on what the lease specifies, you could become liable for thousand of dollars in repairs. If you question my assessment of the costs, in 2000 I had a bathroom remodeled in my first house, and unbeknownst to me the drain under the bathtub had been leaking. I had to have a roughly 8' x 4' section of the sub floor replaced, plus some wiring that had started to corrode underneath. Back then it added $1,500.00 to a remodel that was only $3,800.00 to begin with. You won't get those repairs for that cheap today. And if there's structural damage like this that needs repaired, it won't matter whether the sub floor is total rotted out or just slightly warped, the materials and labor still amount to the same.can I keep my aquarium on carpet?
