Ha! I too know how this works, ex moved out which has allowed me to set up tanks wherever I want! I've got 55 x 2, 20L x 2, 2.5 gal bowl, a 10 jungle on the way-I've been playing with scapes for a few weeks and a 55, 20H & 45 cube sitting on my front porch!

I don't think heat will be a problem until you're into the 90s? Maybe high 80s? I think as long as the humidity stays up you'll be alright. Looking at your latest picture, I think your humidity won't be an issue.

I can tell you when I buy a house then I'm taking over a room for my tanks.

As far as the heat ill let it run today and see where temp is tonight and adjust from there. I may need to turn the heater down some. Or not

$20 for 2 tanks and a stand. Can't beat it, only reason why I didn't get a bigger tank

+1. the good deals go fast on CL. I've also found that if you post a wanted ad listing several options(looking for tanks from 55-180gal. For example) you'll get people offering you many things they don't have listed. I always say I'm wanting something cheap or free, last time I ended up getting two 55 gallon tanks free from someone who had them stacked in the garage.

I'm gonna try that, I've done that on freecycle.org with no luck. But is really like to combine all of what I have and what I'm gonna get into something bigger. Maybe even a 40gallon breeder.

I had to sort through lots of email offering "cheap" tanks($100+ for a 55 tank only...lol) prior to finding the two 55's for free, but it was definitely worth it! I may try it again soon... I'm definitely enjoying having the space of the 55 for my emersed plants.

I'm gonna have to give that a shot.

I added some dhg from my broken bowl and labeled things a little better. Oh I also added an ass load of salvinia minima and duckweed from a 10 gallon I have.

I had to move my set up today, girlfriend wanted too change rooms so I was forces to move it and rearrange it. But on the positive she has given me and entire room dedicated to fish and plants. Her words not mine. So score!!! 2 dome lights and a crappy coralife t5 with only one bulb. I think I'm gonna just get 2 more dome lights for itnot enough light coverage raised the mesh pots up with egg crate, underneath the egg crate is a heater cranked way up with an air stone

Wish I had some awesome updates of plant growth and new plants. But it's a work I. Progress

Hmmm... A whole room for fish and plants huh?

Doesn't sound so bad at all!

I think my wife "lets" me put it all one one area just so it's out of the way.
