What a room!!!! Would be calling in sick once a week !!When we were looking for our house my #1 box to check was a room I could have just for my aquarium stuff. I would have preferred it to be on the other side of the wall my tank would be on but that just didn't turn out to be possible. I do have my mixing station plumbed through the wall and can do water changes with flexible 1" clear tubing...no carrying, no rolling a Brute. Forgive the mess, a clean up is coming up very soon.
Back left generator, storage for multiple TTM setups...plus my older deer mounts.
Mixing station...can see the plumbing to the left headed for the man cave.
RO/DI, sink, refrig/freezer
Three cycled QT's, two for observation, one for copper or CP treatment.
Man cave....fish room is on the other side of the "bar room"
Rest of the man cave. Watching the Packers-Bears
My seat, nano tank.
The FRP boards (Fiberglass Reinforced Panels) I used on the walls was one of the best decisions I made. It was a little more expensive but in the long run I don’t have to worry about water damage or moisture to behind the equipment, I just wash it down with a wet towel and move on to the next thing!!!like the idea of the FRP, and its not that nasty white that turns yellow in kitchens! lol
fantastic build and attention to details!! A+I got back into this obsession last year after taking a 10+ year break from my last tank. The only way I was doing this build was if I had a dedicated tank room. After A LOT of planning and spending countless hours on R2R looking at members builds I started to work. I am a contractor so I was able to do 90% of this myself but I definitely learned a few things along the way.

Nice! I’m running the plumbing this coming week then it’s back to insulation then drywall. Hook up the mini split and then some flooring and it’ll all be ready to start moving tanks in! Let me know when you get your build thread going and I’ll follow along.Same here @JasonK84. I am working on mine as we speak. Framed, electric ran, insulated, drywalled hung, painted everything, floor sealed and Just finished hanging the FRP panels last weekend. This si about half the sapce I have built for the room. I took many pictures so i will have a build thread to share soon. Already have a few tanks that I have resealed so now need to buld a few stands and change out the temp lighting with fixtures. (although I am sure I wont have them on with the tank lights being on). Seems like its taking forever to get it completed but I am getting closer to getting some water moving in here.
