Breeding set ups/ fish room?
I was in no way shape or form even gonna ask for anymore tanks right now but for some reason while laying in bed the other night the fiance asked me why don't I get 3 more tanks for my office which has turned into 10 or so. lol I'm looking at doing some kind of racks to hold either rubbermaid totes or 10 gallon tanks. I wanted to do totes as it would be cheaper but then the fiance said tanks would look better I love it when he wants me to spend money. I know you guys have got them I'd love to see pics and what you like and don't like.

No one really? I'm disappointed, I was looking for some great inspiration here.

I would hold off on what you got now. Give it a couple months and make sure things are sorted out.

What do you mean?

Hmm, my bad I seem to have you confused with someone else. Thought you had just posted about ammonia problems. Sorry.

So you are looking into getting 3 more tanks all 10g?

k19smith 09-03-2011 01:01 AM

No problem I was confused. lol I have 4 tanks running right now 10, 55, 90, 125. I'm wanting to do some sort of rack set up to hold at least 9 10g. I've looked at 2x4 racks, cinder blocks, glass tanks, plastic tubs I'm all over the place with this idea. I have guppies in vases around the house I need to do something. lol

I'm thinking it would be better to do something like 4 tanks at 20g a piece. Larger tanks are easier to keep stable.

As to a stand it would be easiest to just build something with 2x4. There are a few tips and such in the DIY section.

This is a good point I have not thought about dividing 20 gallon tanks. I saw a really nice set up with tubs but I'm worried that I do want to run shop lights and melting them.

Can I get this moved to the DIY forum?

k19smith 09-03-2011 12:35 PM

These are the ones I like so far, this second one really has me intrigued but it's to tall and I don't see it having enough space to clean the bins
