Neo287's Fishroom (Pic Heavy)

Hi all, so here is my fish room. It is actually a fish building, but I call it a room since it is on the small side. Soon I hope to add diy wooden shelves next and an automatic water change system. One thing I do like about it is I got my dad to install a water outlet near the building so I don't have to walk back and forth with heavy buckets!
Front view of the fish room/ building:

I'll start with the right side. As you walk in my 30g shrimp tank is near the door. Top view:

Front view:

Then in the back I have five 10 gallon aquariums. This is where all new fish arrivals go before going into main/ breeding tanks.
Sorry about the mess below, was unpacking new fish:

These 5 tanks get daily 20% water changes. See why I need to add an automatic water change system? Lots of work but worth it in the long run.
I hope to make this area 2 shelves tall and all the way to the door to double tank space.
Below the 5th tank is my 10g plant grow out tank, recently had a melting issue so it's not looking it's best but is doing better. Will add more plants
later today, hopefully:

Ok then we have the left side. The first 2 tanks as you walk in are my 55g, and below it my 20 gallon long fry grow out tank. On a regular every other
day water change schedule.
Community tank was my main display tank and turned into a breeding tank. The Cories, Mollies and Platies breed like crazy in here:

The below Molly fry tank:

Last are the 2 Albino Bristlenose Pleco tanks. Top tank is 30 tall with 5 adults and 1 lone zebra danio. Below is a
20 long for the recently hatched BN fry. These tanks also get the every other day water change.

Adult Tank:

Fry Tank:

.................................................. ........
And here are a few more photos of the tanks in my fish room:
New Gold Dust Molly fry I found today:

The full tank they're in:

Some of the adults with yellow mickeymouse platies:

So many tanks, not enough time...

Just a few more photos...
The Community tank:

Hifin Platies, sorry for the photo quality, they are always moving super fast! Ordered them online and they sent me all males.

No worries though as I have found a female at the lfs, just waiting to put them together in case disease shows up. You never know...

Black Lyretail Mollies, also not the best pictures. Need to get a video of them instead:

Gold Sailfin Mollies, some have lyretails. Lots of fry from this group. Some of my favorite fish

Do you see the baby BN Plecos on the zucchini?

BN fry next to my finger for size reference:

Red Ril shrimpi:

And here's two tanks I will be moving in the fish room soon:
Dream Blue Shrimp tank, heavily planted so I barely see them. I did spot a berried female today, happy about that

Red Guppy Tank

I have a few(7) more tanks in the house, but I am not sure if I can fit them in the fish room, not to mention the empty tanks that are
waiting to be set up
Outside is a small pond I made to grow out some wild Sailfin Mollies, I am going to have to move them in here for the Winter, just have to figure
out where...
I really need to get to work on the shelving so I can install the water change system. Right now I am having to use the gravel vacuum to drain
the water in the tanks and carry the water hose around to fill them back up. Just need some time to make the shelves...

So many tanks, not enough time...

That all looks great! What a blessing it will be when you get a auto waterchange system in.

You mentioned winter moving some fish. Are you going to need anything to keep the room warm in the winter?

Your critters look good. Only thought is about the different color RH snails, they will blend when breeding together you might want to separate the colors so you can sell/reproduce the nice colors you have!

New to FW fish? Need some info on keeping fish?

Thanks guys, it is really nice to just have most of the tanks together, maintenance time is reduced by half the time it took before. It took a lot of time to collect the tanks, but hopefully they will be worth it! Can't wait for the auto-water change system.

shellyx, the adult BN males do a bit of sparring from time to time, but no injury ever results and it doesn't last very long. Nothing like what I've seen with common plecos.

Autumnsky, I do plan to heat the room during the cooler months. Winter is not too bad here in south GA.
About the snails, I have the pure red line and a spotted shell line in my house. The other colors came in on plants. I do not really mess with them, I just keep them to help with algae and left over food

So many tanks, not enough time...
