This thread is getting very close to the end now.

Today i finished all the wiring and fitted all the lids to the water proof boxes.
The air pump and heating and water are now all connected and operational.
Moved the 2 tanks containing my 17 sponge filters from the rack in my garage into the shed,and have connected them all up to airlines.

Started putting the tanks in the RH rack

LH rack has 4x 36x18x10
4x 24x18x10
8x 18x12x10

so 16 tanks in there

Rh rack has 2x 48x15x15,2x 24x15x15,2x 24x18x18, 5x 18x12x12.

so 11 tanks on that side

Total 27 tanks

I am over the moon with it all so far,will be moveing my fish Good Friday.

Fish room looks really good which is why I'm here.

I'm in the process of setting up my own marine fish room. I've been things about lining the inside to seal it like you've done.

How did you stick the correx? I cant find an answer anywhere.

If i read it correctly you used 75mm polystyrene covered with 25mm kingspan?

Thanks
Chris

The Correx is stuck to the Kingspan with spray contact adhesive,it is also nailed,and then all the joints were taped with gaffa tape

Yes i used 75mm of polystyrene in between the wood,and then covered this with 25mm of kingspan.

keeps it quite warm in there.
