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

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.

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!!!
