Finally got my fish room!

After shoving tanks in and on every available space of our last house and quickly running out of room, we have finally moved into a larger house with a spare room. Of course I claimed it as my fish room. At the moment it has 6 out of 10 of my tanks. I'm putting my goldfish and African tanks in the lounge and my 10g (on the floor for now) in the kitchen but all others will be in this room. I'm excited to not have to drag hoses and buckets to all corners of the house. Hubby even said he might put a drain in the floor so I wouldn't have to drain water out the back door the next room over.

It's still a work in progress and I can't say it will ever be fully organized. Lol I've got a big child proof gate put up so a don't have to lock everything up.

Congrats! And +1 on the baby gate. I had to get a 8' gate to stretch across my tank so I don't end up fishing sandwiches out of my tank

Woot! Congrats! I see room for more tanks though. A fish room isn't official until no more tanks can be placed into the room.

Hey its good to hear from ya mumma
I'm with HN1 I still see more room lol room to grow that is. Plus don't forget about safety when moving and setting up all those tanks. Might want to take a quick look at this

Because having a electric strip laying on the ground without a drip loop is not such a good idea. I know I know don't do what you do do as you say

Now if you can just build custom racks to hold two to three tanks high you could really go to town !

Thanks! Thank goodness I don't get food in the tanks just fingers and toys.

I wish! I'm already afraid the wooden floors won't take all the weight.
