Some people like to set up racks of tanks for breeding. and don't care too much for looks. I set up my fishroom so that all the tanks are display tanks.
Hope the pics can give you some ideas.

Thanks, Ben. I wasn't trying to "show off" , just present some ideas. Some day, I may convert to a rack system. I might put a rack of tanks down the center of the room.

I like the "living with your fish" approach. As I have all my tanks in the "living area" I've gone for display tanks too. Then again I don't breed, so I don't have fry chasing to contend with...... well so far.

Wow, Bob you've got it going on! Some day I would love to have a room like that!!!! Don't take it for granted, I repeat DON'T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED! I am sure you don't...

I would say that definitely blows the 2 - 10's, a 30 and a maybe the 55 out of the "water"...

Road trip to AK anyone?

A little fish room 772341 , and maybe some fish room 690297 , and I would sit, look and enjoy for hours!!! Even without... NICE!

If anyone has a better room I would like to see it.

Racks are good for breeding and stocking in a smaller area, but I can't compete with my office or with my fish shed approach to breeding and keeping! Well done Sir!

Nice tanks Bob! I use racks and I currently have 22 tanks in a 10 x 12 room. Having them all set up as display tanks sure looks great!
