We've added on to the fish room. We (he more than i) made this stand for the other 90 we have, with room for another tank up top w/the 90 and two others on the bottom. Bailey supervised...:-)

Yes, it was a fun build........Been looking to do this for a few years......The plan is to have all our show tanks around us, with the Idiot Box in front of us......Rest of the room will be dedicated to breeder and grow out tanks........

Bailey was a slave driver......onyl break i could take was to pet her!

Nice work! Since I just been there & done that myself with a stand, its quite some work till its done, but pay's off instantly....Man and I thought only MY dog played Supervisor and INSPECTOR each time I work on something lol

So this will hold a 90g and 2x45g or what? Is that a basement room? I'd be afraid setting this up on a normal 1st or 2nd story floor with all the water & gravel etc w/out extra support under the floor (that's just me knowing ZIP about construction thou lol)

Now uhm pls hurry up, set them all up and send more pictures :-)
Great work guys! (and doggy :-)

Well the stand was made to hold 2 90 gallon tanks on top, and 2 55 gallon tanks on the bottom.....plan on moving my 55 tetra tank and 55 Blue Angel tank (check them out in my Aquarium Log) to the bottom and the 90 on top (empty) is going to house some variety of SA cichlids.......gotta find another 90 (or move my 90 community tank) to the other side of the stand...........Eventually we will be able to sit in the comfy chairs and be surronded by all show tanks

At the moment, we have 15 tanks running (all in the basement) and another 7 to get set up for breeding purposes

So uhm :-) you're doing this for a hobby or for a living? jk
You sound like you need to either buy or built the stand you'd find at the LFS that hold MULTIPLE tanks for you, like uhm "fish wall" to house all your tanks :-)
I thought when I had 7 scattered around the house that that was quite some but 15....that's a lot. Thou I do like the idea I seen on your Aquariums page with the multiple shrimp set ups, love that, I'll only have 2x10g dedicated to shrimp (unless Santa brings me some more tanks lol)

Oh I LOVE your Boseman's Rainbows, I miss my guys, I still think they're wonderful fish - Are they part of the showtank gang??? I hope so
Love the way your "Bar Tank" is planted, thumbs up on this one!

Dang I wished you were close to me, I'd loveee to come sit & watch all these tanks (and bring along the doggie for playtime lol) I really miss not having 'fish people' around me no longer since we moved.
