      The king of DIY i know it would take up some space, but what if you did a trout tank. Trout can be truly beautiful fish with very active behaviour. I you could find a way to make a trout tank I belive it would be truly unique and I think it would add that that little bit more excitement because of how active they are. I you do read this please let me know if you think you could pull it off.

    I never understood spouses need to poopoo on our passions and hobbies.. maybe from a financial standpoint but we should be responsible about this anyway. I think its jealousy in many cases that they haven't found such a purpose in life.

    I have a 40 gallon tank filled with guppies....They keep breeding, and I want to put a goldfish in with them, but I don't think I should. I'm already researching, but I don't know how the goldfish with act with the guppies.

      +MattacksRC this building is 550 sq/ft. I currently have Ann HRV installed rated for 2,800 sq/ft. Other than that, I'll keep the tanks properly covered and might run a small dehumidifier.

    You are an absolute legend!! I only wish you lived in my country (Wales, UK) so that I could pop round and give you a hand (for naff all btw) so that I could learn from the legend himself who inspires so many across the world. You would never get someone that is so hands on and willing to learn haha! For someone that has been in construction since I was 15 years of age (now 28) you are the most inspirational and using it for something that is so educational and cool, plus it touches my heart strings to see how excited you get its unbelievable!! It would be an honour to learn from you and see all this go on first hand. Unfortunately for someone like me that would never happen. BUT!! I am extremely excited for what is about to come and you have my support every step of the way. And I also agree with what people have said about opening a trust for you to help you with your dream that you are using to inspire so many as apposed to paying off your family home. I would gladly give in a few quid!! Respect to you and your family. An amazing man. Thank you.

    Hey Joey,
    You know what I think would be a challenge, but would be AWESOME?!!
    You were talking about having walls of all the different areas of the world, you should make it where when all the tanks are put together, they represent and look like the continent. 😎😎😎
    One possible way, You could put a giant decal the wall, then have cutouts in the shapes needed for like the corners and such to blend in the the background.
    I don't know if that's poss. Hell I could be talking out of my ass. LOL. But I thought what better way to display them since your are doing regional tanks.
    Just got into the hobby about 4 months ago and have spent 10 grand already. Can't even fathom what the costs of your project is going to be. I'm excited like its mine. 👍

    Hi Joey,
    I have a problem and need help. All of a sudden my well water has high nitrates and therefore my tanks have high nitrates. Any idea what I should do? RO/DI then add buffers? Seachem denitrate? Biopelllet reactor? Fluidized bed? Any recommendations would be appreciated.

  • Mitch
    Mitch 8 months ago +8

    Hey joey, HVAC tech here and thought i should chime in. Noticed you plan
    on heating the structure with an air source heat pump. Now i do know
    you said that the heat pump can run up to -30c, but from my experience
    most of them will only operate to between -15c and -25c (-25 being the
    coldest operating one i have ever seen before shutting down for cold
    weather protection). The other major issue with a heat pump as primary
    heating source is that the heat output it directly dependent on the
    exterior temperature. The colder it is outside, the lower btu output of
    the heat pump. The capacity of the heat pump at lets say -20c will be
    60-75% lower than what the heat pump is generally rated for. Especially
    if you plan on using the HRV/ERV to ventilate the structure in the winter,
    then this will also add extra heating load as well. Hopefully you plan
    on getting some sort of backup or auxiliary heating system installed
    with the heat pump. One option that you could possibly do is a separate
    infloor heating zone for the rest of the building where the big tank
    isnt, or a heatpump that has backup electric heating built in. You could
    also look into a through wall self contained electric heat cool unit.
    Hope this helps and you planned around this since your going with a heat
    pump. Id hate to see you spend all that money for something that is not
    adequate for your needs. Goodluck with the build!

  • Dandi Diputra
    Dandi Diputra 8 months ago

    I'm living in tropical climate and love to having lots of windows. Why its only have only two? Just wondering a good explaination

    • BaeduhnFarms
      BaeduhnFarms 8 months ago

      Dandi Diputra I would assume it's to keep heat loss down. It gets pretty cold here in Canada during the winter and our winters are long. The more windows a building has mean the more heat a building loses and the more money you spend in heating costs. With these tanks being mostly tropical, they're going to be wholly expensive to keep at the proper temperature as it is. Fiscally, its a good idea to not over do the windows. Plus, more wall space means more tanks!

    How big of a fluidized filter do you need for that 10,000+ gallons? taking a educated guess based on galley room size and how much space per section of wall per 100gal tank and assuming you may have a center of the room.
