Fish room build!!

First I would like to thank my parents for letting me take over their garage for my fish room.
Second the room will come together slowly as I get my paychecks
Third enjoy the show...


Ok my parents have agreed to let me use a 11 feet long by 6 feet tall, by 2 1/2 feet deep of the garage for my fish room, and I plan on taking over even more! I will have pics up tomorrow. My basic plan at least for now is
6-8 10 gallon tanks
6-8 20 gallon high tanks
6-8 20 gallon long tanks
1-3 29 gallon tanks
3-4 55 gallon tanks
Not all the tanks will fit in the area that I just told you about, but this is my finished gameplan
Right now I have 3-4 of the 10 gallon tanks
3 of the 20 gallon tall tanks
1 20 gallon long tank
1 29 gallon tank
0 55 gallon tanks

I plan to breed a anything from apistos, to Red Crystal shrimp and everything In between. I will put pics of the areas, and tank up soon. The whole room will be powered by neither a linear piston air pump, or a coralife lift pump. My mom said no regenerative blowers. Lol. I will also have plants galore in most of my tanks. All the tanks will run on sponge filters, and will have at least some java moss and of hornwort in them. The room will definitely not be as big as harpua's but ill take it since I'm only 15. Stay tuned

You're crazy, I like crazy! I like you Haha. Garage huh? That's perfect because you don't have to worry about your mom freaking about spilling water on the floor. What's your plan for all these fish? You selling or hoarding??

Both I plant to use them for BAP at my club but I have I raise the fry to at least like (60) days old (pretty sure) and I will sell down of them. Yes exactly I can just drain the water into the street.

Breeder award program. It is basically a file of all the species that you've breed, and younger points based on how difficult the species is to breed, an after you hit milestones you get a plaque.

Sweet! So far I have bred panchax but that's not saying much.

Sounds like a great plan. 1 potential problem tho, Temperature! Depending on where you live, it can get either too hot or too cold in a garage ( I know this from personal experience ) You would need to either insulate the garage or create a walled off area that can be insulated or use A/C to cool so to keep the temps from killing your fish or preventing them from breeding. Too hot will stop some fish from spawning just as too cold will.
Good luck with the project. Keep us posted with pics

oh yes I did think of this.... i live in georgia so heat would be the big thing, i I have had a thermometer in the garage all winter, and the coldest it got was 69-71 when we had the 7 degree weather, but that is so uncommon here in georgia, and i can always crank the tank heaters, and space heaters up to help combat it. as far as heat goes it can get 78-80 in the garage, but that is only on the 100 degree days, and i will have the AC on full blast, and it will take X amount of time for the tanks to get that hot because it still gets around 70-75 at night, and the garage will stay around 70-78 all summer. good point though
