Brooksters fish cave, yup...

Begin aggressive "get me my fish room done" campaign has officially accelerated. Walls painted, guess where the built in goes floors coated in water proof patio stuff! I'll spill where I want!! Floor drain and all types of cool lazyness promoting upgrades on the way.. moving on Sunday, my lovely gf hired movers so I could focus on the tanks! Woop! Tommorow I'll frame the stand, add play top, trim stain and finish.. get new tanks running and worry about finish once we're in the house and I can relax..
Ps- that huge metallic object embedded in the wall is my new inline co2 diffuser! About as energy effecient as Dr. Evils laser but man does it move co2!!! Bye bye bubbles..

Sweeet! Be sure to take progress pics and share with us. I think I enjoy fish room builds more than I do most tank builds! I'm currently in the market to buy a house as well, and have my fingers crossed that we find one with a basement to do the same

Oh I will... never taken the opportunity to do so... feel like it will be fun to come back in a year and remind myself how badly I beat myself over stupid fish tanks

Its good to know there are other people out there with what my wife thinks are "silly ideas". You'll need to make quick progress so I have picture proof that my idea is a good one, otherwise whatever space I may have available for more tanks will become her art room/crafting area or piled up with an abundance of holiday (mostly Halloween!) Decorations haha

Yeahhh!! Well not really but here's the plan.. 50 gal.water barrel with heater and 500 gph pump.. hard piped drain interrupted by a big ole inline pump.. basically button activated wcs.. one day may have each tank individually cotrolled but that's ambitious at this point.

I had to sell my tickets to see them and Incubus in Charlotte last month. I've waited forever to see them live, and when I finally get my chance, life happened. Sucks having to be an adult sometimes. Glad to see your musical choice extends past the Grateful Dead lol

I did see the Deftones live before. When I was in my early 20s I went to all kinds of concerts. Without my ticket stubs I can't recall half the band's due to hearing\seeing them at festivals.

I'm a good girl, with a bad memory. I saw Rammstein free about 4 or 5 years ago. First concert I'd been to in like 10 yearsa.

Guns and Roses, ACDC, Def Leppard, amazing music.

I'm following! I wanna see pics of the finished product! So what are you planning tank wise?
