Fish Room Progress

Moved existing tanks and fish to the new fishroom over the weekend. Now to bring in the new tanks. I've had 6 ten gallons and a twenty nine gallon in my Subaru for 4 days now.

First Shelf Assembled In New Fishroom

I decided on some Whalen shelves carried by Costco. At $55 per unit, 1000 lb rating per shelf felt it was very cost effective.  I am only using the middle two shelves for tanks so I don't have to climb or kneel.

Moving Operations To A New Fish Room

Arbor covered patio.  I plan on seasonal outdoor tubs + aquatic plant areas here
   Crismore Corys has outgrown their current space............AND since agreeing to take Don Petty's Corydoras breeders the need for tank space became imperative!

I am moving my breeding operation into a 16ft x 16ft room that was an add on off the back of my house.  It has two exits to the outside, one to a concrete patio with arbor overhead and the other to the deck and carport. carrying buckets, tanks and fish through the house anymore!  Now it won't sound like we are in Niagara Falls while trying to watch tv ;)
