Fish house

Postby chr15_8 » Sat Jun 16, 2007 3:44 pm

anyone got any usefull websites please?

im thinking if building one howver it will be small. when i say small i mean 5ft x 5ft max as this is the only available space for me to do it (behind the shed) as im still youngish and living with parents

it will house about 2 - 3ft x 1ft x 15 inches deep
2 - 2ft x 1ft x 16 inches deep
2/3 - 14 inch x8 x 8
1 - 2ft x 8 x 8 inch tank

will have power to run air pumps heating and lights

however my main consern is insulation so nay help would be great

thanks chris

also forgot to say it will be mainly for my galaxy's breeding plan :D

You would have to add insulation yourself, but I know you can get small sheds at places like Home Depot. If it had to be so small think "storage shed." Buying something more premade but that you assemble yourself rather than buying wood and stuff and building it from scratch will be much cheaper.

Good luck. :)

but being and apprentice my boss has a trade discount at a few building centre therfore can get me materials cheap

I've seen a couple of guys build larger scale fish houses on another forum and one of them used the silver lined insulation which helps to reflect light and heat therefore you don't need as much lighting. Only thing is I can't remember what it's called and I have a feeling it's quite expensive. I'm pretty sure they were in the UK though, so might be worth trawling the internet. Sorry I can't be more help.
Let us know how you get on.

i think i know the stuff you mean.

is it a type of bubble wrap which is reflective? if so wickes do it for £15 a roll only problem being is the room is so small would it make me go mental is such a small place with reflective paper all round?

thanks

Hi Chris i too am going to be building a fish room (well its a brick shed but i still need to insulate). I work in a builders merchants and we sell 8' x 4' sheets of polystyrene either 1 inch thick or 2 inches, i am going to use this as it wont get damp and board it over with 12mm Water resistant MDF. I priced it up and for 1 sheet of each it came to £14 (thats with my discount but still less than £20). Let me know how you get on.. Cheers.
Ps iv got two pairs of CPD upstairs that went into the breeding tanks last night, Theres a lot of chasing this morning but no actual spawning yet...Fingers crossed.
