15 Tank Shrimp/Fish/Bearded Dragon Rack

Hello I have always wanted to keep many different shrimp ever since I first got into the hobby but now I'm a position to actually do it. I have kept many different kinds of shrimp over the years. So I'm very excited!

So I have a small office in my house and since I don't have space anywhere else (180g planted Discus in living room and a 13g iwagumi in the family room ) I thought I could put a small rack with 3 rows of 10g to get the most out of the space. I built and stained the rack my self then started looking for deals on 10gs.

Now for the details. For filtration I bought a pump from jemcho rated for 15 tanks with sponge filters.
Bought some 7000k led lights on amazon which I'll go more in depth another day to show I hung them.
I have an RO/DI system and will be remineralizing with salty shrimp (gh+ &gh+/kh+)
As far as shrimp already have an order of PRL coming in and I would like to get royal blues, PFR, tibees, and I'll see what else I get later on.
As of now I have on the rack 5 apistogramma macmasteri redneck in a 20g (breeding project), okefenokee pygmy sunfish, and a quarantine tank with some fish for my 180g, and a 4 month old bearded dragon for now until I build his enclosure.


In each tank I will be putting a different moss and bucephalandra, keeping it nice and simple in the tanks.

Nice job on the rack . Looks good . Just 2 thoughts .... get a lid on all your tanks . If you've got related species that'll hybridize lids can save you some grief ( don't ask me how I know this ). Also .... those tanks on the lower shelf will tend to get neglected over time . If you're reasonably nimble now , it's not a big deal , but down the road... When I redid my racks a few years back , 2 levels was pretty much mandatory . Most of my geriatric friends have 2 shelf racks now .
Good luck with the okefenokee's . I had gilberti , they beat me .

Thanks ya that was my next move to get lids and fix it up a lil I still need lights on the top rack and remove the hang on filter which I have them cycling some tanks.
And about the tanks I thought about that but I figured since I do water changes with a hose and nozzle, I'll be able to deal with it. Plus I wanted to put as maybe tanks as possible.

The sunfish were wild caught and have had a few deaths in the 2 months I had them but they seem to be doing better now. Hopefully
