This sounds like its going to be hard. I will have to look into the cost of gloss paint. My mom might be happy, cause that room needs to be repainted
. I asked my dad where the water pipes were in the basement, and he said they were all running in that room
. Better yet that is the only room in the house that has no ceiling, so I see water pipes. My dad could run a line for me if it was neccissary, hes good at all that stuff. I can pick up some wood and build my own stands, for the smaller tanks, I will not trust myself building something to hold up over 600lbs for a 55 gallon tank. Once I get a final plan I will present it to my paerents. I forgot to tell you theres a pool table in the middle. I have atleast 5' on each side of the pool table, most 3 sides have about 7'. Unless I could convince then to move the pool table to another part of the basement I am going to have a very cramped Fish Room.
