This looks not only astronomically complex but also astronomically expensive. x.x;

Totally dig it though, really neat to see the room itself.

That is super impressive. The tank itself is spectacular...but he fishroom took a lot of great design and planning. How long did that take to pull together?


Sorry...didn't mean to double post...I didn't see the first post and assumed it dissapeared in cyber space which happens sometimes when I am on my phone.

It's a great centerpiece! I will post a few pictures of the build process

You are da MAN!


On another note, the build is phenomenal as is the house! Are you an architect or contractor? Absolutely stupendous build! I know many of us are thinking of our own dream house build right now (or drooling over yours)...Love the fact that the room has drainage and how the tanks is trimmed in to the entrance and great room/kitchen. What a view in the morning with your coffee!

Well , I got a some goodies for the tank room. I have decided to put in a dedicated a/c unit in the room, taking off the house system. I will also be installing an exhaust vent in the room. Many things led to this decision , so my new projects are starting.

Nice, good thing you got some work done. I still have to tidy up my fish rooms. MTS is an issue but having MTS in multiple houses is also an issue...

Now that I have the ac project wrapped up, I had an itch to clean up the powerheads today.
they got soaked in 75/25 water/vinegar bath for 3 hours. They came out great, well considering I've never cleaned them
