    I have this one:
    PH30
    Diaphragm Air Pump, 40 LPM @ 1.5 PSI
    20-35 outlets (conservatively rated)

    Durable yet economical plastic housing diaphragm pump can be used for outdoor locations for Pond use or Fish Room applications
    $119.95

    That I no longer need that has a newly rebuilt diaphragm (proactive, wasn't failing) and a spare diaphragm kit that I need to sell, if you are interested. Its nice because you can set it up outside for it to be a little quieter in the fish room.

    I have a Danner AP 20 that I have been using in my fish rooms for the last 7 years. No problems and runs good still. Will do about 30 outlets in shallow tanks (less than 18" depth).

    We talked about bring in dirt to fill in around the building. Do you think we should go a head with that plan?

    I don't want to drill the tanks, so there isn't a way to get them on a central system?
    FYI. Cement blocks are OK if you start your first level below the frost line (usually 36-48" depending on where you live). If you do not, the building will literally move up and down with any frost, stressing any plumbing and or any windows. This could also throw your floor out of level stressing your tanks. To put your mind at ease... I would dig dig dig....

    I understand the concerns and I have them myself. But I'm the one that will be working/living with it. So if it does start to fall apart, you all can say I told you so. Until then, I'll stop making the man mad at me and just be glad it's getting done. In the words of my hubby, I'm not building a house here. (that's want he said to me as I talked about some concerns I had)

    I just wanted to share the process of the building getting put up.
    An old saying comes to mind here: If you don't have time (or money) to do it right the first time when will you have the time (or money) to do it again?

    At the least take the organic material out from the center area and put in some sand and compact that a lot.

    Kiddevo it appears she is using a floating slab. It's not connected to the wall structure. theoretically the slab shouldn't heave since it is protected from the temperature shift by the walls.

    Justin started to redo the water line. Moving to a different area. Going this weekend to get more blocks for the middle to brace the floor more, and wood etc.

    will be filling it with sand after we get the water line moved and a drain placed. My hubby did not want to fill it, but I'm making him.

    Will be using AC to cool in summer and it'll be heated in winter months.

    It's been raining here so nothing really new. We did get the framing of the floor done, and moved the water line.

    I didn't get any pics before the walls got up, my hubby worked on it when I was at work and didn't get a chance to get photos.

    And here is the start of my sign that will be hanging on the side where the opening is. Have to go this weekend and get a door and shingles. Hoping to get my sign done tonight.
