Lets see pics of your fish room or under your tank!

Everyone loves to show off their display tanks, but it seems the majority of discussion here revolves around filtration, water flow, keeping chemistry correct, etc.. all of which happens in your not so pretty portions of your aquarium system...

I'd start with mine but I cant get a pic for a few hours since I'm at work.

let's see em! share your 'dirty work'

You asked for it. Here's the inside of my 40BR stand. That's a 20L sump and an Octopus NW-150 skimmer with a Mag 5 return pump. (It's a brand-new setup, btw. That's why the skimmer's so clean.)

All of my stuff for the tank is set up in the basement. It ain't pretty, but it gets the job done right. The first photo was taken just after setting it up (why the fuge isn't done yet)

Millimeter clearances!!!







All the equipment for a 115g in the stand of a 60g

Only things not under the tank are the chiller, ATO bucket, and CO2 tank.

Here's my sump + fuge inside my 55g stand.



other side



I actually have 2 'fuge compartment sort of things.. Ive got the section of my sump that was originally designed for it (the middle) but there wasnt any way to get a whole lot of water in there and my chaeto wasnt growing.. so I added the 5gallon ontop and plumbed it in for chaeto only growth.. we'll see how it does.

C'mon people lets see some more of the equipment that makes all of this magic work

You know, this is not a hobby for those who aren't handy.

We all ought to get together for a few beers sometime.
