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.
