This sounds amazing! Would be awesome to have an indoor koi pond in this room! ;) I hope you get around to doing this and post the wonderful pictures for me to see.

There is too in the last pic in the corner. Breeders sometimes will have some kind of filter so they don't have to dump out every single tank. THey have something that slowly sucks out the water and drips new water in, from what I have seen on other sites.

O The big gallon drums in there. I see but it still is unclear to me without the person explaining it himself who has the setup and if its a perminant system in each tank or something that is moved from shelf to shelf.

What most breeders and people with fishrooms have is something called a drip system. You can see it in those pictures but this video series (the link is for part 1 of three) might help you out a little more. =] It's not as detailed as it should be but it's a basic guideline that it might help you to follow. Of course you can customize it to your needs and tanks and this is where the research comes in. =]

What makes these systems awesome is the one main filter. It cuts down on cords and individual maintenance.

You'll also want to PM some of the breeders on this forum and possibly a member whose username is Chrissy. =] Most breeders have a drip system of some sort in use. even if it's not for the fry.

This is a big undertaking. What's your time table like? When are you planning on starting your project? =]

Thanks for the info. I plan on doing this in a few years, so no rush. I just want ideas so I know how to set up. I am not sure about the time line of my work. Depending on where I am, but I always make sure I have time for my animals.If I worked 8 hours a day, the rest of the day I would make for my fish till I went to bed.
