I don't envy you that bill, but honestly, that's pretty good, considering!

I DO envy you the fishroom, though!

Awesome room, I'm jealous.

You cleaned up the room a lot since the past pictures! Much more open now and no mound of USPS boxes

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

That's really good for all the tanks you are running. There are times when I wished my bill was like that and I don't even have 1/5 the tanks.

As always.. I envy those racks.

Awesome! Still super jealous, one day I'll have my own fish room for mad science experiments or something like that lol. Did you have too get the basement wired by an electrician before you set everything up?

My husband is in the power industry, he did all our wiring and plumbing. He also custom made all the stands for me from blueprints I drew.

Are the doors of the stand just diamond plate or are they something covered in it? That stand is awesome. I may have to steal the design.

Just dismantled the last non-custom rack to move in another 3 tiered 4' rack. Shuffling is getting closer to being complete!!!
