Do you have a Fish Room?

I have talked to some members of my local fish club... many of them are hardcore breeders and have whole rooms in there home dedicated as fish rooms.

I do not, but i think it would be cool to have one. but then again I like haveing tanks here and there around the house and my classroom...

how about you?

Just because I am working at Petco does not mean I am a sell out, they are still an evil empire, that I am trying to make better.

WE have converted a 10x10 bedroom into a TANK room you could say.. At this time 11 Aquariums running in this room... Most have homemade custom stands with canopys that my husband made.. In my Tank Room are: 4 - 55 gal,, 2 - 75 gal, 3 - 29 gal, 1 - 15gal, 1- 20 gal.. the smaller tanks hold fry/others.. I have a combo of south/central American, and Africans from lake Malawi mostly mbunas.. And one of my 55 is holding my fancy goldfish for the winter.. YEA they are spoiled... Their is a 125 gal African Mbuna tank in the main room...

All this started with to many MIDAS JUVIES.. MOM and DAD Midas are in a 75 gal..

Having both of my tanks in the family room has led me to begin plans for my boys room when they leave the nest. According to the size of this room, I could get upwards of 12 tanks in it, including a 125 to a couple 40 breeders.

*If my wife sees this, I'm in a world of trouble* LOL!

I don't have a "fish room" but all my tanks are in the same area. I am a college student who lives at home with 3 tanks, and my room is in the basement (finished part). I have my 55g planted tank in my room, and right outside my bedroom is a living area where we have some sofas and a tv....and my other 2 tanks. When I set up my 38g, it will also be in this living room as well as any more tanks I get. Hopefully I don't have MTS too bad because I have to remember that I'll have to move all of these out eventually.

I do plan to have a fish room when I get my own house. One of my must haves for a house is a big finished basement area where I'll have my current tanks, plus anymore I decide to add. I'll have them lining the walls!
2 planted tanks: 40g, 20g ; 38g Reef tank

Funny stuff JChillin.

I've got no plans for a fish room right now. I have two tanks in the office at the moment. I don't think my wife would be all that happy with me taking over the spare bedroom for fish tanks either.

I have my new 125G and 20G in the "cats"/computer room, and my 55G in my living room.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I live by myself, all of my tanks are in the living room. I also have a sectional and a tv. Does that disqualify it as a fish room.LOL
