    what a great idea!!!

    the do's and don'ts when setting up a fish room

    i'm sure that people who have set up a fish room in the past would have heaps of tips, ricks and time saving ideas they could share.

    i have never set up a room but am definately planning on doing so in the future (when i can afford to buy a house) so this thread will be my bible so to speak

    pics would be greatly appreciated

    breeding tanks can be anywhere from 20 gallons to 120 gallons, really it doesn't matter, the fish will breed fine, but i find that 40 gallons work great for that. as far as the growout tanks, thats up to you.

    I am in the process of sourcing 20 x 40g breeders for my fishroom.

    Since most of what I am going to be breeding are either dwarf cichlids or shell dwellers, I can keep two to three pairs per tank with no major worries.

    Ben's fish room tips!

    1/ power power points, power points power points!

    When starting a fishroom you will need as much power as you can get your hands on! unless you decide to heat the whole room.

    2/

    water supply and holding drums?

    You will need a fresh water supply handy so you can do those frequent water changes, depending on the climate where you live you might also need to heat the water and treat it for chlorine.

    3/

    Space!

    Tanks take up a lot of room so you want to have as much room as possible! specially if you want to expand! as everyone does get discus fever!

    4/

    insulation....
    If you live in an area that gets cold at night an insulated fish room would save $$$ in power costs!


    There you go they are my fish room tips!
    but by all means if anyone thinks of others please
    put up a post!

    cheers,

    Ben
