    Default New Fish House

    Guess it's about time I post a video of the new fish house. The building is 12x32 with a 8x10 addition for utilities. 33 tanks total. Twelve 20 high, two 29, ten 40 breeders, eight 75's and one 125 for a total of 1425 gallons.

    Thanks everyone.

    Ralph, I'll tell you the secret. Don't let it get so big that it isn't a hobby anymore. Could I use a bigger building with more tanks. I could absolutely fill up a lot more. But then it takes more time and becomes a job. As it is, I spend about 1 hour siphoning and doing water changes. I can pretty much do the entire room in that amount of time. It is another 1/2 hour to re-fill the storage totes. That is just right.
