PostSubject: Fishroom MK III   Sat Jan 10, 2015 6:00 am

Hey peeps been working on my new project for a good 5 months now inbetween turning the old fishroom in to a babies room and the garage into a fishroom.
Here are some pics of the project thus far it is a project that I think will always be 90% done.



Construction begins.

Foil insulation and vapour barrier whole room. Gyprock panels going up.

Room painted, vinyl floor laid edges trimmed new tank stand ready for tanks. Lights installed.

Control box for bank of tanks. Temperature and lighting. LED power supply.

Doorway, aircon for extra hot days.

Stock tank, peppermint breeding tank rack.

Peppermint tanks. 4 footers. Little tub full of fry.

Pepp rack sump filter, socks - sponge - fluidize k1. 2x 4 footers. over flow drain for automated water change system through drip irrigation.

grow out tanks and common bn breeders 5 foot sump on bottom and 5 foot l333 tank on opposite side.

Sink, water filter automated drip system. Whole room air pump. Aircon for heat waves.

A lot of work gone into it wish I could have given a step by step account for others to learn from but during this time I also had my first born arrive so busy times.
