JE: What were the major obstacles involved in setting up your fish room in your garage? Any specific challenges that needed to be overcome and how did you do it? Which reminds me - when are you going to get that MONSTER acryllic tank up and running? And please tell us a little about that tank.

JB: When we bought out house my only requirement was it have a garage. There were no problems when turning the garage into a fish room. We added extra electrical outlets, coated the floor, put in an a/c duct and drilled two holes in oppisite outside walls. I do hand syphon a small amount off the bottom of my tanks. But most drains thru the walls onto the lawn with the help of valves.

The monster tank you saw is a used 220 acrylic (72 x 24 - 30t) with a 55 acrylic sump. I bought it used but have never set it up. It's on the "to do" list.

JE: How many fish do you currently have? What strains are you the most happy with? What strain/s do you like best, personally? In particular, how's the leopard that you got at Wattley's when I was there with you doing?

JB: I have about 40 adult discus, and I like RSG's the best with heckels probably next. The leopard SS is now about 5 inches and fully spotted. John and I saw it at Wattleys when it was only about 1 1/2 inches. I will try to provide a picture.
