    Default DIY One Stop Water Changing Station

    My husband made this for me and it is just perfect. I have my pump, hose, scrubber - everything I need to clean or do a water change right here in one little station. I just pull the whole thing out of the closet that is where all the main aquariums are and go to town! He thought of pretty much everything, I think.

    That is really cool. Now add wheels to it to make it mobile and you will have the perfect device for changing. I say this because I have a very similar cart set up.

    I used casters for a long while but they got clogged with pet hair. I now have installed an axel system and use lawnmower wheels.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    He was actually going to put wheels on it but since it will never be moved more than 6 feet and on carpet - he decided not to.

    It certainly makes things a lot easier!!

    Very cool idea. He's got a good head on his shoulders to think of that.

    Nice idea

    Now you can get a few more tanks
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Awesome idea. Smart husband to think of something like that.

    We just keep everything in a five gallon bucket. I like that idea better. Maybe I'll convince my dad to build one of those.

    The only other way your hubby could make it easier for you is to do the water changes for you...

    Nice setup...
