What happened to all the fish tanks? I used to have an african ciclid setup for 10+ years until my last one died. I've been tankless for the past 4 years and am thinking about adding in an aquarium setup when I finish my basement build.
I'll take a few when I get home, the theatre end of the room is clean currently, minus the PJ power and hdmi cable dangling from the raceway in the corner. The back end of the room is where I plan to make a bar area and it's filled with junk. Also, my frat boy furniture is all I have so that really dumbs the place down.
As of about 6 months ago I got out of the aquarium life. I work 12 hour shifts and had 8-10 tanks up and running at any given time. When I called it quits I had a my 220g, two 180g's, a 125g, 75g, 55g, 40g, 4 10g's, and my 4g rimless cube running. Between feeding, cleaning, water changes, and the electricity bill I couldn't justify it anymore. I kept mostly central and south American cichlids. My 220 housed a few beautiful silver aro's, I really miss them. I know I'll get the bug again. I'll be building a bar for the theatre room and wouldn't mind building a simple 55g show tank in to it. A planted community would look pretty nice in the room, but I'm not too keen on having fish around when I'm blasting my subs during movie time.
Now if I could take all that money I dropped on fish over the last 10 years, I'd have one hell of a theatre!
