My Fish House.

Built since 1996 with some adjustments along the way. Originally built as a breeding set up for African Cichlids.

In 2005 I again decided to breed Guppies with a small number of changes in filtration. The set up now consists of 100+ various size tanks.

The filtration system is a combination of sponge and German Maximal filter. I use two filters in each tank only cleaning one alternatively. In larger tanks I have installed both Hamburger filter pads and the German Maximal filters.

The air supply is derived from two Hi-Blow 200 and LPH-120 (Jemco) based in the USA.

I have installed a flow through water change system to 20 larger tanks. The room is space heated with two temperature controlled electric wall heaters. The tanks are completely bare with no area for uneaten food or mulm to hide. Water changes are completed daily replacement water which is conditioned in 3 x 50 gallon storage tanks and heated to the same room temperature 78ºF. Mains water is pre filtered through one particle and two carbon chamber filters. Water then held in storage for 24 hours, aerated and filtered through a Fluvel 304 canister filter.
