My newest Aquarium wall

Thought I might post my newest aquarium wall I built, Got abit of help and finished setting it up, Sprained ankle bums me out, But didn't stop me :)
Built it solely outta treated decking, Got lots of it around here, So what better use to put it too. 5 and 10 gallon tanks

Always in NEED & looking for more Tanks!

I'm impressed. Water change day must be every day at your house.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Love it. How long to do water changes? Do you perform them all at once or stagger them? Bettas in every tank?

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I do water changes Everyday!
It's not as hard as it use to be tho,
I Have a long hose that reaches way outside for Drainage with alot of different Nozzles so as to prevent any spread of diseases should one tank every develop one.
And a refill hose hooked up in my bathroom for Refills,
No bucket hauling that way, But still pretty Much takes hours most every day,
Good exercise and I really enjoy it!

Actually alot have betta's
I have more Betta's occupying tanks then Other fish, But then males do need to be housed by themselves. :)

Nice.. what do you have floating? Duck weed?

With that many tanks you should look into a sump pump system... it would make it a lot easier

Hmm nice setup. I'm doing something similar with my room and its gonna be mostly 2.5 gallon tanks and 5 gallon tubs. The growouts will be 10 gallon tanks and 30 gallon tubs. I'm gonna start to set it up as soon as I can.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

LOL I can't wait 'til my siblings move out.... I might be able to steal a room for a fish room.. Hmmm...Heehee!

I'd really like to make/get a tank shelf now.. room for more tanks... I currently have NO dresser OR desk space left. Anywhere.

I'd like to have a shelf unit in my dorm.. only problem is I'd have to build it which involves 1) Math :P 2) money 3) someone carrying it up to the 3rd floor for me.
