Text guides for building barracks ?

Well, I think this is what I'll end up doing. Ill use 5 gallons, and hook em all together. Im thinking perhaps just 6 or 9 will be plenty for me to handle in my tiny house on wheels.

I could put a bigger setup in an out building, but then i cant sit and watch them. And I'd need to buy a few more cisterns for water supply.

So, i will kis.

Thanks for any info. Im mostly curious about the best filtering and pumps for these. I understand the routing of the hose, although what i saw on utube, seemed to use very large tubing.

, I suppose for max of 9 fish, it wont take that much really.

Lol. Babies, must be arriving soon!

Yes, I watched two on tube, but i was very tired, and didnt write down the text.

I woke this am, with it in mind. Had a vision of the 9 in a row, end to end on my wall. Just a little higher then sitting eye sight. They were above the flat-screen.

OMG it was so beautiful! Ive been thinking about a way to do that. It would be too heavy to have each on a floating shelf, I think. And I would have to hide the working parts some how.

Do they make track leds? =) Id be willing to pull the wall apart to make this work!!! hahahahahahahahaha

Yes I have two spawns who are going to need to be jarred and two pairs in the spawn tubs right now lol.

I'd use a heavy-duty metal shelf to hold your tanks. Water is heavy.

yeah, 7lbs a gallon. I transport all my water to my place, so water weight is a super big deal to me, =).

Good-luck on your spawns. Cant wait to see what will be for sale.
