    Phase 1 of the new fish room.

    Now that we are settled into our new home I can finally commence the construction of my first proper fish room. I designed the stands to accommodate the tanks I already have with some room for expansion of course. The design is for up to four 55G, four 20-30G, five to six 10G and two 75G. I have a 135 but that has it's own stand, not in the pic. Any shelf that was elevated off the floor I re-enforced with 1/2" bolts along with the standard 4 2-1/2" deck screws per contact point, just to be sure. Also all the stands are 2" x 6" construction with the double 75G stand being 2" x 10".
    I will keep everyone posted as I being to move the tank from the old house to the new.

    Here are some pics.

    Looks really good. Can't wait to see this one progress.

    Lots of options in a nice big room like that.

    Finally, all the tanks moved in. I also added some shelving for air pumps as well. Here's a couple of pics.

    Most of them came from Spencer Jack and those wood cats came from Oliver Luncas out of Montreal.
