Thanks for the compliments. This room gets me through the winter when it is cold and dark (it is Canada).
I only have 1 high tech tank and that is the 72 bowfront. In the Summer I don't add ferts and I kill the CO2 as I spend alot of time with the family camping and I am not a big fan of the "jungle" look. There are 2 10,000K 65W bulbs and 2 6700 65W bulbs. Currently it houses Rainbows.
The rack of 20s is from 2 Gorilla racks put together.
I purchased this stuff (sponge filters, heaters, and aquaruims)
And simple 48" T12 shop lights from Home Depot. The power bar came from Canadian Tire. The lights are pretty well anything that is cheap and as close to the 6700K spectrum as I can get. The current bulbs are considered "daylight" and are rated at 5000K.
I took 2 of these
Painted and replaced the particle board with 3/4" plywood
Installed the power bars. These bars are perfect as they accept any size of adapter and they cover the whole back of the rack so the receptacles are easy to reach
Secured the racks to the wall
Fill with water
With fish and plants.
I am breeding a strain of Moscows right now. So I am using the 10 gallons for the fry. The other 10s now have Painted Red Fire Shrimp, Golden Bee Shrimp, and a mix of wild cherry and blue shrimp.
