    I've finally got settled in the new house and ready to start a new tank build. I've had several tanks in the past. Sold/gave away most of them and all the equipment I had.

    This will be a long drawn out tank build as it I'm doing a fish room in the basement and going to plumb this to the first floor. Hopefully ill get it all done this year.

    I made the stand this morning going with a ada style. Still need to veneer it with a flat black. The stand is 24*24*36 tall.

    Is the tank going to go in a corner with two identical viewing sides exposed? Very nice.


    But a 24x24x30 tank on a 24x24x36 stand? I'm sure you'll appreciate the extra sump space, but I would have been really tempted to make the stand match the tank height to keep the symmetry.

    Thanks cypho the sump will be plumbed to the basement so hopefully there's just a net, razors to clean the glass fish food in the stand. The stand height matches the rest of the cabinets in the room.

    World's longest update...Just waiting on the electrician to show up to run 2 circuits to the fish room. Then drywall. Currently breeding different apistogramma , planted freshwater, and one saltwater planted lagoon finally starting. Once the drywall is up the big tanks will be added to the mix [​IMG][​IMG]

    Finally have the electrical and drywall done. Starting to re arrange the room and getting my temporary rack torn down. So far for tanks list is

    Custom cube on the right.

    Two towers like the on on the left (24*24*108 tall). Both have 1 innovation marine 25 gallon lagoon and 1 IM 40 gallon. 2 10 gallon tanks at the way bottom. Each one serving as a ato (I use icecap because of their small sensors) for each. Then two 10 gallons way up top as my freshwater breeding.

    One of these is completed the others still being built.

    Also have my 40 gallon breeder tower I'll start once the other towers is built.

    All are lit by aqua illumination Prime hds

    One wall almost done...two more tanks to set up, then re-clean cables.

    On the right is my little bit of freshwater I'm hanging on to. Love breeding various apistos and guppies for some reason. There's 4 tanks in total on the right. Two tens up high, a 60 gal, one ten below.

    Upper left
    Trying to breed lightning maroons but haven't had success getting them to pair up. Have a very small rbta and a ultra green bubble tip.

    Lower left

    Will eventually be a sps tank

    Middle upper is a lot and softy tank. Can't tell I have anything in there in the first photo . Closer up pic.

    Lower middle will be a sea horse tank my daughter is begging for.

    Down low is 4 10 gal used for ato. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Maybe a bit OT but could you post some pictures of the planted tank? If I didn't have a reef tank, it would be planted.
