New Fish Room

Just thought I would share.
Well I'm just about complete with the build out of the Fish Room.
Waiting on one more 55 to finish it off and that will be done in the next couple weeks.

The room when completed will have the following:
All Freshwater
3-55g
3-29g
1-60g
2-10g (Hospital and Quarintine)

55s all have a canister filter XP/M and if needed another canister or HOB
29s all have a Emperor 400 w/Bio Wheel
60 has a XP/M and a Emperor 400
I have added a sponge filter to the 55s and 29s
Also have Air Stone (Wide) in each tank
Air Pump is a JEHMCO - LPH45
Lighting is Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED on all tanks
Jager Heaters on all tanks
Glass Versa tops on all tanks

Room:
Tiled floor
In room Sink
Mold guard Dry wall
Humidity controled exhaust fan
2-20A - 24 Outlet - Power Strips behind tanks
Custom Built Rack tied in to Ceiling and built with all wieght resting on Wood support from top to floor (not just on nails)
In the basement, so the Window is in-direct light and temp is pretty constant year around

Picture of the Airpump mounted up high and routed to a diffuser and then to the metal lever valves. I can control the airflow to each device from the diffuser.
The JEHMCO pump requires at least 12 connections as that is how is displaces the heat. This pump gives me a lot of room to grow. It is also very quiet cannot even hear it.

The Angel Fish in the 10 gallon tank on the left in one of the pictures is being medicated right now as he is basucly blind and his eye fungus started to come back.

When he was young he ended up with eye issues and I think can only see light and dark. He still gets around, but bumps into things once in awhile but otherwise he stays healthly.

Another week and he should be back to his home tank as the eyes are looking better now.

I have all show tanks and one is Mbuna only, and also a cold water tank for the small pond I have outside and bring the fish in for the winter. Another has some small crabs and a Gourami and some misc community fish. The 60 is a planted tank I'm doing mostly tetras in that one and few other different compatible fish. I will be getting into more advance fish again in the future once I retire but for now not getting to crazy due to time avaiable. We really like the room and all the different types of fish.
