    When one asks where do I put 80+ dats, they freak when hearing the answer.
    "Two 29g longs and a 120g high"
    Haha, sue me. I had a few tanks laying around but never got a chance to do anything about it. Plus school and bills suck so you end up selling the larger tanks you need to pay for things and are left in the same hole. I'll tell you now, fish and fish related items dont come cheap in my parts. So this project has been 1 and a half years in waiting.

    Space is a main factor so all tanks will be double stacked.
    Started ahwile ago collecting the tanks just need to finish grabbing the equipment. So far the list is
    3-180g's
    3-125g's
    Each tank will have different filtration.
    1st 180 - 30g wet/dry, quiet one 3000, odyssea ex 550 powerhead, 18w coralife turbo twist
    2nd 180 - 55g wet/dry, quiet one 4000, fluval fx5, 2 odyssea ex 550 powerhead, 36w coralife
    turbo twist, penguin add on bio wheels
    3rd 180 - 55g wet/dry, quiet one 4000, fluval fx5, 2 odyssea ex 550 powerhead, 36w coralife
    turbo twist
    1st 125 - Rena XP3, odyssea 350 powerhead
    2nd 125 - Fluval fx5, odyssea 550 powerhead, 18w coralife turbo twist
    3rd 125 - Fluval fx5, odyssea 550 powerhead, 18w coralife turbo twist
    also
    2 azoo large battery backup pumps, 6 hydrospnge 5, and Medo or whitewater blower.
    All 3 stands built with 4X6's and 2X4's using 1" lag bolts and nails.
    All tanks will be built with custom piping for all the filtration.
    So far, I have the following: all 6 tanks, 6 glass canopies, 30g wet/dry, 55g wet/dry, 5 ex 550 powerheads, 1 ex350 powerhead, 36w coralife turbo twist, 2 fluval fx5, rena XP3, azoo battery pump, 2 stands built.

    My 3 E-shopps over flows came in and finished getting enough bio balls to run the 30g and 55g wet/dry. Gonna hook up the pumps and gotta buy some 1" bulkheads. Brought 2 tanks in to paint. No spray cans all brush baby!

    My last 180g and 125g will not be worked on till july as of vacation and such. Looking at the tanks now I feel as I'm still in need of more. I might pickup another 180g or 2. I still need to move some dats to 2 other 125g setup not shown. After the last rack is up, I'll be starting on the datnoid ponds. I have a few rubber maid 300g's laying around and will be picking up at least 2-3 1000g+ ponds very soon hopefully. I hope you guys enjoy the pics. I'll update this as I go.
