    This is really fascinating. Following your blog on GG. That is one gorgeous tri-color bubble eye you have in your gallery. I'm suffering a serious case of goldfish envy!! :)

    The tanks are all in place, plumbed for recirculating supply, drain and air. Filter to come next.

    Moved fish into 3 of the 6. pictures and etc are on the blog but not liked to the main label yet.

    Really cool, how will they be heated during the winter? I can only imagine what your neighbors were thinking when you got all those tanks :)

    Most likely will only heat to keep above freezing. I like to let some of my fish experience winter, with the gold of developing strains that can handle a winter.

    They will be plumbed to a central recirculating system which will have a submersible heater.

    Myneighbors think they own the world so I love giving them new things to complain about, but not to me because I won't speak to them. The first time I met them they implied I was cooking meth on thanksgiving morning. Ever smell varnish? It's legal last time I checked and I'm a good neighbor. They are not.
