[Video] Kim’s Fish Room Tour – August 2017

I have 24 tanks up and running in my basement, ranging from a 5.5 to 55 gallons. Most tanks are either 10 or 20 gallon.

The basement did not have a floor drain or sump, so I have a sump that is not yet sunk in the floor. Fish water is pumped out on my lawn – once I have a garden, I’ll pump it there.

I have hot and cold water (with a mixing valve to set it to my desired temp), but I do not have a sink in the basement. When I need to rinse sponge filters and such, I need to go upstairs.

Enjoy the video, and if you have questions (or suggestions!), leave them in the comments below.

  1. Enjoyed your video. Looks like we have a lot in common. I just started in shrimp and bought a bag of dream blue velets from you. The first night I enjoyed watching them when I added them to my 75 gallon community tank. I didn’t see any get attacked but by the next . morning not one could be seen. I have lots of cover and some rock piles. I’m hoping some survived and are hidden. We will see. I would like to get some more from you when I get another tank set up. My plan is to make a pure bred guppy tank with shrimp and java moss in it. I raise guppies, swordtails, snails, and plants and we are working on several varieties of mollies. I’m trying to develop some showa swords. I have some Kohaku’s which are finally starting to have fry. Can’t wait to see how they color up. I also raise pure bred purple dragon guppies and several other mixes. Maybe some time we could do some trading.

    1. Great to hear from you Jerry! I’ll have more Showa swordtails ready about the time I have more shrimp ready. I love mollies, but they don’t do well at my house – not sure why, but I do really well with the platies, swordtails, guppies, and shrimp, so I just stick with those.
