cool project. I would recommend a central heating unit than individual heaters. It is more expensive upfront but more efficient and cheaper to run and temperature controls. Also, less chance of your tank potentially get cooked if you have a heater malfunction.

Point well taken. I am getting a mini split system installed.

I purpose built it. I live on 9.6 acres and my house is about 100ft from this building.

From the outside it look like a part/playground restroom.

Male on the left, female on the right. Haha

That room is just the right place for a fish room.
Have fun spending 10-20g on your dream, will be worth every sec.

Are all your circuits protected by a GFCI?

Quick question... I have 3 overhead cfl bulbs spaced around the room. I am going too use these as nightlight for fish. The will be on timer. Was wondering if they should be soft white or blue in color.
