alright those who know me know that i often change my plans oh about 99 times before i get into one and then i move on it... so i am setting up the 29 gal "show tank with sand, some caves, and maybe some drift wood.
the big plan comes this spring/summer instead of doing a fish room in the basement (as thought about before we moved in) it will be cheaper and nicer to do 4 nice 20 gallon tanks in the dining room along with my 29... now the issue was space but my wife came up with a great idea!!! we are going to remove a build in cabinet widen the hole and build the tanks into the wall!! i am so excited!!
now i know the next part is going to raise an eyebrow or two and some may even suggest against it but for energy savings and ultimately ease of care for 4 units in a wall set up i am going to plum them all into a sump so i can run less heaters, lights, and only one filter instead of 4 seperate ones.. now i know that there is concern over cross contamination however after careful planning we decided that a station in another room will be the 3-4 week QT to keep it all safe from new comers and stock slowly!!!
the top two 20's will be divided into three and each space will house a male Betta
i have not really decided on the bottom two as of yet i may stay with a male only guppy tank and then keep the other one for females or i may go a different way all together... the 29 by it self is my current project so i have time to think about it and plan out the plumbing and everything.. just wanted to share the base plan and get a bit of feed back.... i may even start doing pix soon as it will take months to get there but i want to show the step by step with this one....
