Hello from Lincoln

A big hello to everyone :wave:
Iíll be honest...... I started fish keeping about a year ago as my daughter wanted a black moor as a pet. I can now safely say Iím addicted to the beauty of this hobby.
Currently I have a fluval 240L freshwater tropical set up, with mainly tetras a dwarf gourami and corys.
Iíve just bought some more tanks as the wife gave me the nod to create a fish room   ;D
Great site and love the calculator.
I look forward to advice and ideas when my fish room starts to evolve.
Cheers
Tagstank

Hi there and welcome to the forum.  :wave:

There is an extra special hello from me as I also became seriously addicted in quite a short space of time.  ;D
High five for approval for a fish room. Awesome. I personally will be insisting on many, many pictures.

Welcome to the site!

I'll chip in with being interested in photos and plans as I have to live vicariously through the MTS of others...

Hi, I will upload some photos tomorrow of my 240 community.
The 240 is being replaced in my living room by a 360 corner unit, and will be re homed in my fish room.
The fish room will have 5 tanks in it. Lol, im not loaded with money but rather came across a bargain buy on eBay and couldnít restrain myself. Because of my lack of restraint and a very understanding wife we can to an agreement that I would make use of the sheds which for lack of a better term, are ďlandfill storageĒ.
The sheds are identical and are not a bad size at 6x8ft, I will be linking them together long ways making 16ft long, putting some skylights in, power lines, heating and insulating. Iím toying with adding a water supply for the ease of maintenance.
With 240 ltr tank, 180 ltr, 100 ltr, 66 ltr and a 54ltr along one side wall and the back wall I should be able to have enough room for some bean bags in there for good comfy fish gazing, and maybe a mini bar lol.
As for what I will keep in the tanks I havenít got that far, Iím open to ideas though  ;)
Iím hoping to start on emptying sheds this weekend if I can shake my man flu in time.
Most of my plans are either trapped in my head or barely legible scribbles. Iíll try and make something that people other than a 2 year old or me can read tomorrow  :P

5 tanks of varying sizes... hmmm... I would probably go for...

Shell dwellers
Dwarf puffer fish
Tropical planted community (maybe with discus)
African cichlids
Marine tank/river tank

I would think that a water supply would be a must even if just a garden hose arrangement.
