    If your looking for some high quality germans, look no further than Stendker discus. Discus hans is the man to see.

    1 of my own:

    LIGHTING! it is much more advantagious to have the whole room lighted instead of individual lights for each tank.

    imo,

    Get everything in there in the first place, plan plan plan.

    Delivery and removal pipes, any air/water pipes that are to go in need to be done first so it's easy, to get to those hard to reach places once you install tanks can be a pain in the proverbial.

    Rig up lighting to suit and i would suggest room lighting and not individual tanks (this means you'll have to think of the sort of lighting you will want to use, getting all this done first means you only need the sparky once and not have to get them back to add a new 130w high output 14000k globe like i do atm lol) ps planning on reviewing this light later, just awesome

    Keep it all as simple as you can, as mentioned you'll want some space, also think of what it will take to get a tank out if it cracks, breaks or whatever......trying to get a 6x1x1 tank out and having to remove 4 4ftrs first isn't fun trust me.
    Also it's getting new ones in, try to stick with a generic size for tanks, so it's easy to replace if need be, they'll fit right into the old slot if the stands are all the same. Different sizes all the time means more work when working out meds etc as you have to calculate water volume all the time or record somewhere what it is, just knowing that every tank is "blah" is much easier. replacement parts etc are minimised as well.

    hope some of these things help

    Here is a link to a few photos of our setup, 35 tanks on 2 systems, it took us 6 months to build, alot of laughs and tears and plenty of grog for the wins! If I had one piece of advice for anyone it would be take a look at as many other fishrooms as possible, we had the opportunity, didn't and regret it, it saves time, money and heart ache.

    We filled the tanks with about 80 Discus from Roy Khoo, plus a few others, that are now pairing off and getting ready to breed.
