Tank maintenance on my stuff tomorrow so will get some photos, i still have my tanks in a temporary location/room which is very small and dont have much space to setup a camera tripod and stuff but i am in the works of setting up a whole shrimp tank room (Just waiting for some decent weather).

New shrimp room incoming. :laugh:

Still a way to go yet, need to get this building finished this week then start planning insulting it then onto picking some racks for a large scale shrimp room :smile: :smile: :smile:

next steps:
  • Sealing all internal joins with silicon
  • Internal frame adding to hold Insulating foam
  • Extractor fan to remove damp air and reduce condensation
  • Plumb in a hose pipe for an RO filter system
  • Cable in electric for lights and sockets
All i need to worry about then is keeping the thing cool when its red hot in summer :upset:

I was going to put up a wooden frame inside then slot in that thick insulated foam block stuff so I don’t need to board it out after adding hemp/fluffy style insulating.

Understood! Good thinking! I love hemp. It also comes in sturdier "blocks". Can be recycled. It has many benefits. It's very breathable too. But may be more expensive?
