HN1 and I have a converted 2 car garage full of tanks. We also have some in the house. At last count I think we had 81 or 82 running including the fishroom and the house. Tanks range from 5.5 to 120 gallons. I don't have updated pics right now or I'd share them.

So did y'all insulate it and do u heat it in the winter? How much does your power bill run with all those tanks?

We have heating and air run to the room (it was an attached garage and has been closed in). We also use a portable heater and air conditioner when needed. The electric bill, I'd rather not discuss.

Is selling aquatic "products" your main source of income? Or just a side job among the hobby?

Well in GA I believe you are deregulated for energy (Electric and Gas) I believe you should look into shopping around for rates...a lot of people don't even know that, but you need to always read the fine print and that you lock in your rates. I did it here in NJ I am saving roughly 40 bucks a month.

That buys a good number of supplies. Something to think about.

Currently have 15 tanks running in one classroom, and 6 tanks in other classrooms. Tanks range in size from 10 gals to 100gals, are both fresh and salt, and contain everything from native fish to puffers and amphibians.
