reasons for a fish room?

Postby awilson0001 » Sun Feb 06, 2011 2:04 pm

i am not saying a fish room is wrong, cause i do not think that at all!
and maybe this is the wrong section for this topic. if so, feel free to move my topic :lol:

i am not new to fish keeping, but i am new to the idea of a fish room. so i was just wondering what all reasons there are for fish rooms.

1)reason i am asking is because i see pictures online of fish rooms and all of them look like lfs's kind of. is it mostly for raising and breeding?
2)i would like a fish room but i was thinking of a display room, where the plumbing and such would be more hid. is this not what a fish room is?
3)on the subject of a display room, has anyone ever tried a fish run? by this a mean a long self made tank? like a man made river so to speak. that is my plan anyway, along with my normal tanks.
4)for anyone that has a fish room thats more for show, is it set up differently than those i have seen with all the plumbing everywhere? i am curious.

more questions to follow i am sure. thanks for responding.
oh as for now, i only have a 125, 75, 2x55, 60hex, and a 29 high, not all in one room. can a fish room be that few of tanks?

Reason's are endless...
Easier to heat a room, than have a heater in every tank, and not to mention CHEAPER !!
Easier to do waterchanges ...
Easier to move to fish from one tank to another.

There's my top three....

if you have 1 tank in a room, it's not a fishroom. But than there is room for more.

More gets more and more, and after a (short) while the room is packed with tanks. Thus a fish room, and it's time to move on to improve another room :)

So what is the reason for having a fishroom? You are not started making a second :lol:

On a cold winter day, there is nothing better than sitting in an 80°F/27°C room, watching your fish interact with each other!
