    Its looking very good. You can take your time and only be ready in spring - avoid the winter costs

    I discovered my garage door acts as an heater during the day. My theory is the more tanks running will keep the ambient up making heating a little less. So far 20 tanks are running.

    Hi Barry
    How are you going to insulate the ceiling ? there is going to be a LOT of condensation - esp in winter - from the cold corrugated sheets and the warmer temp inside the fish room ?

    Hi @eros111 there is no plans to insulate at the moment all electrics will be covered for dripping . My main concern now is keeping the humidity in check.

    Not really just use the basics and do the basics(prime/stability) . None of my tanks has had anything fancy in chem wise. I use mostly air for filtration. Still believe firmly in UG filters.
