04-04-2013, 09:57 PM
Bought my first home and finally got the space I wanted for a fish room. Currently still in the setup stages but i am really excited about it so im sharing. Using a 50 gallon barrel to prepare water for changes, hoping to get a large horse trough soon. I need to build a 4th wall behind the table closest to the camera; to retain heat and lighting mostly. Running all tanks using an air system. 1" pvc on a looped circut with air driven sponge filters.
55 gallon with two mated pairs of convicts and 5 buenos aires tetra
40 gallon community: black neon tetra, neon tetra, red minor tetra, purple danio, jack dempsey growout, gold/opaline/honey gourami, tiger barb, lampeye tetra, harlequin rasbora, cory cats
29 gallon mbuna cichlids; red zebra, yellow labs, hybrids of the two, 1 random peacock
20 gallon apisto and cherry barbs
Mated krib pair in each 20 gallon, 10's below are for fry, quarentine, and red cherry shrimp
10 gallon red cherry shrimp
Also have:
10 gallon guppies tank (for now; will separate into tanks later)
5.5 gallon scarlet badis pair
80 gallon red oscar, jack dempsey pair, and two common pleco

Nicely done. Looks like room for about 10 more tanks!

Amazing! Wish I had the space for a room like that. I have 5 tanks running in the living room right now and the humidity is killing my house!!
