And each of those from the metal splitter you split into two as well?

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

Ya there's a T between each tank.
Ya and the air pump is on the other side of the wall. Keeps noise level down. A lot!

I might have missed it, but how do you heat each tank? Do you just heat the room?

Also, any stocking plans for the shrimp tanks?

I got heaters for each tank but haven't put them in as I'm trying to get heat the room.
Rooms stay at 70-73 so that should be good.
I'll eventually put the heaters in just for backup I guess

Yes
As of now. I'm sure it will change after it goes.

Do you have insulation for the summer so temps don't spike? Or are you going to chill/fan cool the tanks?

when I started I stripped the room down to the stud beside the ceiling.
And reinsulated with 20R.

But behind the black vapor barrier here's an AC in the wall.

That and fan should keep thing cool.

Re: H4N "Planted Tank ROOM"

Small update:

Didn't get anything done this weekend.
It was my future wife's bday so I took her away for the weekend.

Anyways:

I got my dual stage regulator with 10 outputs in from OldPunk. Thanks!!!





I also setup the sink but haven't done plumbing yet. Still trying to figure out which way to put it.

The needle valve are a bit tricky but it only really matters for the 2 tank that have livestock the rest doesnt matter how much co2 is being pumped into them.

Did you get your the needle valve yet?
