How big is the tank going to be? What type of filtration are you considering? Commercially bought filters, or one you will build your self? Obviously If you're building a fish room, it will enable you to get everything right, hopefully first time.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

i have done a small 13 tank room a few years ago and used sponge filters and canisters on the parents tanks but i are going to have about 30 to 40 tanks this time most will be 4 foot but my oscar pairs will have 4 x 2 x 2 tanks so not sure to run sumps on parents tanks and sponge on fry tanks what do you think

if your keeping fish with all the same water specs i would consider going with a sump setup. you could hook all your tanks into one sump and do all your biological filtering with it. however if you have a disease prob withone of the tank it could spread to all of them with this setup.

Warning..I will offend you at some point!!!


my goal is simple a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all
