I'll be using this thread to document the building of my fish room throughout this week. All the stands are already built i can provide detailed pics of there construction if anyone is interested other wise I'll just move on. Here's some pics of the room with just the stands, once finished there will be 12 tanks half of which are for angel breeding the rest will contain whatever suits my fancy.




reworked a rack today to mount a light and moved some tanks outside to leak test and soak with bleach water. Also put the first coat of paint on the stands but no pic they look crappy right now

this is exactly why i took the staycation, she will let you eventually I've been slowly working mine for 3 years, it was actually her idea that i take the storage room instead of the garage.........at least that what she thinks ;)

Lunch time update, the stands are all painted and mounted the electrical boxes.


I live in a rental house so I've had to come up with ways to do the electrical without noticeably modifying the structure so i build 4 plug extension cords instead of hardwiring everything, the room is powered by a dedicated 20a breaker going to a 4x4 box with a GFI in the first position so the whole room is GFI protected.
