Quick update on the fish shed. Got all the insulation and thermal wrap done. Put the sink in. Put together one of the racks and painted a couple of tanks. Also got the lino floor down.
Next on the agenda is to put up the rest of the racks and paint the other tanks . Electrician is coming during the weeks to fit the light and sockets. Hopefully then towards the end of next week ill be filling tanks ready for fish

It's starting to look like a room for growing plants of the illegal type, but will serve loads better as a fish room!
It looks as though there will be no natural light, so what sort of lighting will you install?
Its looking good.

Beginning to look something like a fish room. Need more tanks and jars but 12 of each is plenty for the time been. Plan for tomorrow is to get the air ring put in place and working and plan what way im going to run the leds above the tanks

Ran the led strips over the tanks today and also put in place the air ring . I just have to put timers on the lights and see how good the air ring works once the tanks are filled but plenty of air coming from the air lines so should be ok. Sink and tap been connect in the morning along with the RO unit. Then finally tomorrow evening and all day Friday I can start filling the tanks and getting them ready for fish on Saturday

Sorry haven't updated this in a while. Problems with getting the internet in. I was able to move house and build a fish room but eircom can't connect the internet for another few weeks. Useless c**ts . In this day and age. Anyway rant over.
Most tanks are now filled and everything is working as it should. Really thrilled with it. Spawned my 1st pair of fighters in it last week so will post it soon.

Wow, living the dream!

Are you using sponge filters for all the tanks via the mega air pump?

You might need to think about having a back up air pump ,just increase the gremlins pay a visit ,like they did to me a couple of weeks ago
