My fishroom build

Thanks everyone! Ok, I stayed up till 5am running the 3/4" PVC along the ceiling for the central air pump. I hooked up my linear piston to the system and it worked great for the couple hours I slept. I picked up 20 more airstones this morning because it makes a HUGE difference in pressure in the loop if not all the sponges have airstones.

Now that I have more air I can set up the 4 more tanks that were waiting. Pictures to come.

Radek - great use of space and nice looking, clean tanks.  I especially like the series of 10 gallons up high.  Nice work, and as always, nice pics.

Excellent work man!  You really packed a lot into a liitle space.  You seriously need to think about a career in remodeling or something dude.  Between your building skill,  and you ability to "see" the way it fits.  I envy you.  Very nicely done!!!

I got my laptop back! Time for tons of pictures!!!

The fishroom is no were close to being done. I want to run PVC along the ceiling for a central air pump. I may try to do some sort of semi automatic water change system. I plan to make one lil tank out of acrylic, a total of 4 gallons for kicks and giggles.

As of right now I have 19 tanks, 596 gallons. None of these tanks look the way I want them to yet. I have been moving around alot of new fish and I want to pick up a couple hundred pounds of rocks and some more driftwood but the tank layout is DONE.

Here is a shot as you walk in the door.


The whole wall on the left with 2 75s, 6 10s, 2 29s, and 1 20L.





This is the left side of the U shape. 3 40g breeders.


Dual  55g stand in the middle of the U shape.

And least but not least the right side of the U shape, the 29/20g stand.


Thanks for looking, Please let me know what you think.

Here is the little shelf I had for storage in the fishroom above my 75 gallons.



The general idea was to put 6 10g length wise like this.



More pictures to come!

So as time has passed I have had several new species to breed. I currently have my tilapia fry, and a copadichromis female. I have no room to put my copad female among other fry. When I first started planning things out, I did not plan to keep or breed fish but I now want to. I had a little more room above my double 75 stand.

I picked up 6 10g and placed them length wise on a stand. I currently have 18 tanks, I still need to pick up another 40g breeder. Things are coming together nicely, I have been taking pictures but can not upload them until I get my laptop back. I have also started work on a water change system.

Pics to come!
