Well the second hurdle has been cleared. First step was getting the space. Tonight I went to pick up my first 5 tanks for the new fishroom, and ended up bringing home 22 instead. Oops! So now I have the space and a great jump on the tanks, next will come the racks. Keep checking back in for my progress. I'll post pictures as I go.

Update:
I got the first rack built today. It holds (4) 55 gal.
(4) 20 longs
(2) 20 talls
As soon as I can get this picture to upload I'll post it so you guys can see the progress. It's starting to look like a fish room!

Yeah I'm not sure what's changed but it tells me there is an error everytime I try to upload the picture. It's worked fine in the past. How do I drag a picture? All I have is my phone, no computer.

This is weird. When I log on through my browser I can't upload my pictures. When I open the portal through my email (notifications) I can upload. What in the nine hells is going on here? Utterly confused...

Yeah I'm using the top row. It's tight for sure, I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to keep tanks up there. Now that this rack is up and running there are a few things I would change and a couple small things I over looked. Eventually I'll change this whole set up and drill all my tanks.

That would be nice. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the 120 yet. I'm currently growing out some frontosa but eventually they will out grow that tank. So I'm not sure if I buy a larger tank for the front colony and do something different in the 120.

I'd get a larger tank. Those fish can get rather big.

Well as you can see the top tanks don't have lights so sorry for the poor quality of the picture. I think you get the idea tho. Hope you like it.

Yeah I have a few wet pets on this rack. The Pearsei is one of them. I want just breeder stock but can't bring myself to get rid of a few of my big old guys.

I have a big old tank that can house big old fish. Nitrate filter is coming soon, so they'll be living like kings.

Nah it's a big softy in my tank. Who knows how it will act in your environment tho. When I had him in my 120 with my other big guys he was picked on daily, so he's very submissive.

Most of my fish are peaceful. The fish most likely to be aggressive would be my Motaguensis, and my Flowerhorn. The Mota is actually surprisingly nice though, he's never hurt or killed a fish, and he only rarely chases them. The Flowerhorn is only about 2" now, so hopefully by growing him out in a community tank he'll be peaceful.

I made a thread about my progress with the Mota on another forum. With each day he seems to be more friendly towards his tankmates, and less shy towards me.
