Default My Fish room

Hello everyone,
Here's what i have begun to build at home. I started this early in 2016 and hoping to get a few more things done this year.



Will be 6-55g tanks stacked.

Filtration will be based off this video

https://youtu.be/nB1ofYNqREo

Along with a single air pump for sponge filters in all the tanks.

And because some 55g can't be drilled I will go with the following DIY overflow

https://youtu.be/65yVr7DiDls

Getting wood pieces put together


Wall space I have to play with.
There's still more room but couldn't get a full view


Final assembly





With tank up top








And how it's tied together



Here are the lag bolts i got, 5/8"-6" long, these were used on the 4 inside legs of the top shelf



Here are the lag screws i got, 1/2"-4" long, these were used on the 4 outside leg posts on the top shelf




Added shelf board, you can also see where i used the 6" bolts at in the back of the picture. I put 2 at the back and 2 to the front.


Here's the finished stand







Here's a few pics

I'm curious why you made your stands so much wider than the tanks, are you planing on getting bigger tanks?

thanks for the reply..

the reason for the extra depth is to allow for some 20g long on the top.
I plan to go with 1 section of the top with 20g long and possibly a second.
that's an extra 8 tanks

with the bottom racks... if i want to go with some 75 then i can easily ad a cross member and new plywood top and i'm good to go.

Looks amazing! How are you dealing with all the humidity from so many tanks?
