    Glad I can help buddy... Hopefully you learn enough from that first rack built to finish the rest. If I have more free weekend I will help as I can. Looking froward to see this finished. Love how the rack turn out. It's one I would build for my future fish room too.

    The best way is to run 2 sole use circuits to the fish room. If not doable find a outlet on a different circuit breaker and run a heavy duty extention cord to feed some of the heaters. Don't use the sump pump circuit.

    Check Best Buy for the dehumidifier. I know it sounds weird but that's where I found the best deal. I don't have the plastic because I don't have ceiling tiles that are porous. Mine would be a bit more complicated but it's just a flat ceiling with a coat of paint. My dehumidifier doubles as a heater too so expect that room to be very warm. I close the AC vent off and shut the door to keep the heat trapped inside. In the winter I have to empty it at least once a day. In the summer it's not quite as bad.

    If that dehumidifier can be set a a set temp then there's no need for a heaters in each tank. You can have a sect room temp at 82-84 degree plus it's removing moisture from the air...

    I've never seen the option to set a temperature. I said it doubled as a heater because it heats up the room just from running constantly.

    Some dehumidifiers you can take out the collecting pan and put a piece of hose on it. Allwin since the sump pump room is right there. Have it go into the sump pump tank and you don't have to empty the water.

    Don't know about u guys but think dehumidifier uses too much power I'll rather use the Panasonic bathroom vent and I think heating a room to 82-84 degrees isn't comfortable to be in room I'll rather have room heat to maybe highest 70-72 degrees and have heater in each tank to do rest

    Allwin this is very exciting stuff thats going to make a great fish room. The rack that was built just needs a little extra bracing for safe measure. Cant wait to see more…..Josie
