Current Fishroom

Post by MsCichlid » Sat Sep 13, 2008 10:31 am

These are a few shots of my fishroom. All the work was done by yours truly. There is plumbing behind the long rack that I had plans to utilize, but I never got around to implementing because I did a club a favor by accepting a shipment for their event before I could finish all the work needing to be completed.

I can almost picture Dan sitting in a chair, feet out, drink in one hand and camera in the other!

Very functional fishroom with plenty of room to sit back and watch the fish (something my room lacks).

I have a picture like that...somewhere. When I find it I'll post it.

One thing has changed in the fish room though. The 120 is now planted. Thanks to GWAPA and Luis Navarro.

Thanks Mike. I used to have a section that was perpendicular to the long rack, but I cut it off to make the room more open.

No. Those are supposedly sp. Emieki from Venezuela. But I do have two of these. Do you think this is an altum?

Nice room, Francine!

All you need is another double row of tank down the middle :lol:

Francine's fishroom has grown on me, it is very nice to have room to pull up a chair and just watch the fish. I could not do that in the first version of my fishroom.

Very nice fishroom! I do envy all the open area and like just the two rows --for visual effect and for functionality. My fishroom is so small that I've had to go with 3 level racks and more of a bookstore-like aisle arrangement. I would prefer your set-up style---BTW kudos to you on some excellent DIY's 8)

Thanks! Let tell you about the process.

First, picking up the materials. In the meantime, I had to paint the room and put down new tile. I had the bar sink taken out and replaced with a utility.

The racks are based on shelves and 4 x 4 supports using lag bolts to hold it all together. I cut all the materials first then assembled the racks and painted them.
