Fish room

12

I am going to start prepping my "fish room" next month (May). Is there anything you recommend doing to the walls and such like special paint or the floor to prevent water from leaving the room? I will be installing an exhaust fan with a humidistat. I will have a sub panel in there so all the power I could need.

What is the water volume of the display, and also the support equipment that will travel to/through the fish room?

I am planning a 300 gallon in wall setup with sump and yet to be decided related equipment. I will have a water supply and sink and floor drain in this room. The room is about 8' x 20'. I am planning on installing an automatic fan with a humidistat.

The mildew resistant drywall is a good pick, and epoxy on concrete floor.
The exhaust fan will help a bunch.

I'm liking the sounds of this build, please keep us posted with progress and pics as you go

I will take pictures of the "before" when I start next month. I appreciate the suggestions. When I take those pics I will start a build thread. I won't get the tank till probably March 2017 but I plan to have all of the buildout and most equipment purchased and or made and ready by then. Lots to do and spring will be here before I know it.

I always suggest concreteboard in high humidity and moisture areas to my clients who build homes with me. Pricey obviously but even mildew resistant board will still eventually give into mildew if in high moisture areas. Air exchangers are huge.

Thanks. What is an air exchanger. Would a humidity controlled exhaust fan do that?

Concrete board, is that like what you use in the bathrooms for tub and shower areas?

Yeah it's what you use on showers and tub surrounds. And an exhaust fan just sucks air out of the room so other air in the house can circulate through. An air exchanger pulls air to the outside of the room, i.e. The exterior of your house and another fan pulls air in

What sort of filtration/tanks are you planning?
