I set-up a new fishroom this weekend. Here is a pic of the rack I built.


It is 2 feet from the wall, all electric is on a breaker of it's own.

Looks like a severe case of MTS pulled together into one spot. Good thinkin' on the electric work!

Those little nanos would look great on desks and other convenient areas...what about putting larger rectangular tanks in their stead?

is every "tank" lit? i might just be blind but i don't see any lighting sources for some of them. but using the plastic tubs and organizers for this purpose seems like a good cost cutting approach. how are they filtered, if at all?

I had to turn off the air pump to get the shot I did. All tanks/tubs/containers have a airstone for water movement. A few have filters/sponges. Not all are lit as I need more lights. I still have 2 more tanks to move over to this location. My 20 gallon shrimp farm and a ten full of endlers. Not in the pic is a 75 and a 10 I set-up as a micro farm. So I guess I have MTS real bad:hihi:

For lighitng hte most efficient way with this setup is probably to have all open-top tanks with shoplight fixtures (2 or 3 thick) overhead, running hte whole length of the shelf.

Looking good. Are those breeding tanks, fry tanks, or neither? I only have two tanks and don't really have room or $$ for more ;)
Maybe someday when we get a bigger house. My dream is to get a very large planted tank ~400-500g.

All those are breeding tanks/set-ups 2 are fry tanks(red rocks on top left). 1 is a plant holding station of cuttings and extras (clear tote).
