Why build a fish room? Because I like fish...
I'm currently breeding angels and been trying cories for some time with no luck. Also just setting up a RCS colony. (We'll see how that goes). Will probably try others in the future.
I have several 10, 20, & 55 gal
for my breeding and others as show or species tanks. Most will go in the room.

I do the bare bottom already but I'm glad you mentioned the sponge filtration. I've done that in some of my fry tanks and found that inadequate
. I'm a big fan of "You can't have too much filtration". I mostly use HOB
's except in my show tanks where I use canisters.
I've seen other fish rooms setup with sponge filtration exclusively
. Why did you like the sponge filtration? It's not too late for me to move in that direction.
