No idea. I usually don't ask for a tracking number from him. He's shipped before I paid in the past as well. I don't really worry about ordering for him...the plants will come and look beautiful.

Price differences. Since I orginally needed a bunch of them. But now heating the room was much better idea.
i'm keeping the 100watts for the shrimp tank incase I need to bump a few tanks up in temp.
The rest are mainly farming tanks so they dont need to be a certain temp really.

In other news:

I totally stripped both my 60-P and 30L and redid both. The 60-P is done. But the 30L is empty currettly until later tonight.

except a few new pictures soon!

Vampire crabs or red devils (two different species apparently, zoological classification is still iffy) are the common names. There's also geosesarma notophorum (mandarin crab) and several others. They are supposed to be hardy and are terrestrial. The nice thing is that they do like a little bit of a water feature, so it's a nice combination of something a bit different from the regular tanks, but still aquarium related. I'm getting some after I come back from Germany.

Or go for panthers. They are fully aquatic, just you might need a separate tank.

I am chiming in late, but the room looks great. I had the same idea back in January.

I had just bought a new place this past year and it had a lot of buildings on the property (6 ac). Unfortunately every one I start to renovate has more damage than the last! I've already torn down the first 12x12 room off the house because of subterranean termites, the 20x32 pool house for rot is going to be next, and the 18x18 building might be salvagable.

I should just buy one of those used mobile offices like that and save me a lot of grief. Won't have to worry about code either haha.

Maybe you'll have luck with the 18x18

i'm so glad to hear that!

Ya i orginally wanted them the long way but I woiuld have lost out of so much space.

I actually have 2 fixture per shelf.
1 fixture = 2x 48" T8 6.500k bulbs.
So total 4 bulbs. No algae and decent growth from the mosses and random plants i got in those tanks.

The rack I got at homedepot, keep in mind I had to add extra support and wrapped the board to make it water proof.

let me know if you want details or anything, i'll try my best to help!
