My Fish room
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
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
Getting wood pieces put together
Wall space I have to play with.
There's still more room but couldn't get a full view
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

Congrats. Your setup and fish look great. How many tanks are you at now?

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.
