Spent the entire day today removing the crap from my future fish shed that has been accumulating in there for

about 10 years. Thought i would share some quick pics. It's never been usable because of all the junk, so my parents have given it to me providing any changes are made at my expense, I clean it out etc.

Going to eventually insulate it and heat it all (still haven't decided how, parents say a clear NO to air con). So yes very exiting and much better than having all my tanks in my bedroom and having no furniature apart from my bed...

Any handy hints as to how you guys heat your fish rooms would be great. Something power-saving is a must. Enjoy

Craigo - I'm so lucky eh. My parents both have a shed each (for horses and building manly things), this one is

the derelect (or was) at the side of the property. We live on 10 acres so it was about time my parents

stopped hogging the shed and gave me one to play with :D.

Corbii- haha nice try. i dont think sharing would go down to well with my fishes haha.

Bisqotti- cheers :D. its gunna be a long road with the pathetic wage I earn at the moment but at least its a killer start :)

Yea niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!!

hmmmm...... soooo many things to decide.

Yea heating is a big one, but for now I'd consider insulation AND perhaps a few coldwater tanks over winter?

Going for central air pump, like an LP100?

Hey, did you ever wake up in the morning

On the wrong side of the bed

A bit confused and yawning

You go straight out the back to your shed

Yeah, all Australian girls need a shed

A place where she can go, somewhere to clear her head

To think about the things her man said

Yeah, all Australian girls need a shed

A joint to learn to read an' write, to work on her bike at night

To grow up as she likes, to grow anything under lights

A place to keep her tools, nuts and bolts and drills

To hang a hide, to hide the dry or hang to pay the bills

Well my old shed, he leaks a bit, the roof is caving in

Nothing that a chick can't fix with a few spare sheets of tin

The beams are old telegraph poles, white ants have eaten them

He creaks and sways on windy days and leans towards the sound

Yeah, all Australian girls need a shed

At the back of the shed where the dogs are fed near last years bails of lucern

Sticky tall green leaves came up from thrown out seeds

All it took was bantam poop, I watered 'em once and they grew some

They should be prime 'bout Easter time if no nosy neighbour steals 'em

Yeah, all Australian girls need a shed

To weld up broken gates, a place for all her mates

To come 'round Sunday arvo' for a gin

A place to make a racket, to find the pipe and pack it

To think about the things her man said

Yeah, all Australian girls need a shed

Yeah, all Australian girls need a shed

Yeah, all Australian girls need a shed

thats awesome!...you could do a lot with that...look up fish room setups on the net(google images etc)..I do it all the time just to dream away...and to get ideas for future set ups...plan beforehand & maximise the space and set it up so everything is as easy as possible...love to see the journey!

thanks for the kind comments everyone :D. the next step is to get the irrigation sorted around the shed as it is at the base of a hill and floods minorly when we have long periods of heavy rain. so hopefully soon will be getting the bobcat in to dig it all out, then I can start really cleaning it out and getting the insulation done. will keep updating as things progress for sure.
