I just set up a 30cubed reef tank in my bedroom. It helps me when I'm having trouble wetting the bed.

I don't understand the question...


Seriously though, you can never have too many fish tanks. They're like prostitutes.
Sure, they cost money, and too much of one thing can be bad. But I sure do like
the smell of fish, getting my hands wet, and hiding them in the basement from my wife.

I have three in my room. My parents wouldn't allow any more in the front room, so I started putting them in my room.

Here's a shot of my reef tank from my bed. I just set it up yesterday. Props to CHOMPERS to holding onto it
for a year while I've been homeless. I put it right next to my computer so I can watch it while I surf.

The only problem you might have is if the room is carpeted. To much water in the carpet can and will grow mold. Otherwise there are no health risks.

I've got a 180g + a 75g in the living room. I put 180g + a 150g in my father in-laws room--concrete floor back there--lol... I figure the old guy is up 20 times a night to take a leak anyway so the filters won't bother him to much:ROFL::ROFL:!!!!!

The trickling drove me mad when I lived in an apartment with 4 tanks in my room. Having a fish room is much better.

I didnt even notice that was a computer screen. I thought it was a window with light coming through the blinds. That thing is massive!

Ive got two 180s, a 3ft (soon to be replaced by a 120) and a pond in my room. No health problems, except for a sore back from cleaning the damn things.
I have to leave my windows open constantly or else it becomes too humid and when I'm home I leave my door open to let fresh air in.

Sounds like a job for a dehumidifier???

i had a 110 in my room for a long time, i really enjoyed it except when the water level dropped so that it sounded like i was sleeping under a waterfall. But i wasn't too keen on it the day the canister filter decided to pump all of the water from the tank onto my bedroom floor, or the day my neighbor sprayed insecticide on the side of the house (outside my bedroom window) and killed my fish.

I have a 55 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon long, and two 10 gallons in my room here at school. :D Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to have any in my room at home. :(

Anyway, I enjoy having the aquariums in my room; they help to break the silence and keep the humidity up in the winter. The only problem is the trickling of the filters gets annoying if the water level drops too low due to the high rate of evaporation in the winter, but it's fine otherwise.

Really depend on your sleeping habits and your filter choice.

Some people can sleep through Armageddon and for them, tanks are no problem; if some people wake up at drop of a pin, I suggest leave the fish out.

Why fish (tanks) are better in the bedroom than husbands:


Fish don't wake you up coming to bed at 2AM after playing WOW, out drinking, etc.
Fish never steal the blankets.
Fish won't hog the bed to the point you have a 6 inch sliver to sleep on.
Trickling water is more soothing than snoring like a chainsaw.
Fish don't have morning breath.
Fish don't turn up the air condition until icicles are hanging from headboard.
Frisky fish are easier to take of- feed them and turn off the tank lights.
Being an MFKer, you're always in the mood for your fish.
