    So many of you might have seen some of my posts recently where I claimed to be upgrading my breeding setup. The welding of the multi-tier stands took a few weeks...as I could only work on them during weekends at my dad's place...

    Anyway...for those who are interested...here's the (almost) finished product. Need to finish the T5 lighting on the multi-tiers and get glass tops for them

    Old breeding setup with grow out tanks:

    Nice @ J A X !!

    I have some large spare tanks that I am not going to use. All of them needs one pane replaced... Would you be interested?

    Looks like you're gonna be busy on weekends from now on:) . Other than endlers and Galaxy rasboras, what else will you breed?

    Want to focus on micro fish (2-3cm fish intended for planted tanks) and ideally A.Trifasciata's (Struggling to get F1's tho)

    Shutting down the Galaxy breeding end of the month. Want to keep them as a "sought after" fish, so don't wanna flood the market. Will start breeding them next year again I reckon.

    Already have Dwarf Emerald Rasboras that I want to put in the place of the Galaxies. Then thinking of Pygmy Cories, Otos, Chilli Rasboras and Amanos

    how do you control moisture and have you looked at heating room instead of each tank

    It's a garage without a sealing, so most of the moisture evaporates through the openings between the roof tiles. Also, because I mostly breed CPD's...tank temps are only between 21-22 (so moisture is far less of a problem than a room filled with discus tanks for instance)

    Everything has its pros and cons...so while it's still small scale...I'll stick to individual heating and filtering for now

    Nice Setup @J A X :congrats:

    One thing there's never enough of, is 2 point plugs hey LOL!

    How do you do prepare water for waterchanges if I may ask? Do you have a big tank you prep water in?
