    Default Shrimp Racks Project by BossAquaria #1 shrimp Hobbiest in Australia

    Hello to you all,
    I thought I would share with you all one of my latest projects i have been working on in my spare time.
    I hope you all find this thread interesting and useful.

    So I have decided that after spending the last 3-4 years buying shrimp from many many people and spending ridicules amounts of money on the promise of premium quality shrimp, only to be disappointed! that it is time to take matters into my own hands and start a selective
    breeding program of my own, to try and obtain the perfect shrimp

    my current setup has only really allowed me to breed numbers and not quality, hence the need to setup this better system.
    The room has been built with every possible precaution taken to ensure nothing can go wrong. (touch wood)


    so ill start with the room, tanks and equipment specs.

    * Room Size internal dimensions - 4.8 x 3.6 x 2.4 meters. (Length x Width x Height)

    * Floor- insulated, waterproofed and tiled.

    * Walls -​75mm thick refrigeration cool room panels (Thermal Performance (Properties at 6oC) ‘U’ Value (W/m²K) = 0.51, ‘R’ Value (m²K/W)=1.92)

    *Tank Stands -Custom build pallet racking system. Built to fit wall to wall, for "shrimp tanks" with a weight load rating of 1200kg per shelve. (a little over kill but for good reason, later explained) and standard long span shelving for the plant grow out tank system with a weight load rating of about 300kg per shelve.

    *shrimp tanks - all custom built to suit racking system modules. 12 large tanks in total.
    12 tanks @ 2200 x 450 x 400.
    8 of those are divided with 4 equal sections per tank.
    and the other 4 are divided in 2 equal sections per tank.
    Total individual tanks is 40

    *Plant tanks - all custom built to suit racking system modules. 4 large tanks in total.
    4 tanks @ 2130 x 450 x 260
    * Sumps - all custom built to give maximum volume of water to system to maintain long-term stability and maximum filtration capabilities.
    4x Shrimp tank sumps 2200 x 350 x 260 with multiple dividers creating a tear system.
    1x plant system sump 2100 x 500 x 400 with multiple dividers creating a tear system.
    total sump tank is 5

    * Equipment
    1 x 2.5KW reverse cycle split system air conditioner
    1 x HG-370 Air Blower * 800 litres pr minute *
    2 x LAGUNA POWERJET FREE FLO 11000 ltr/h
    1 x EHEIM COMPACT PLUS 3000ltr/h
    12 x 6ft twin T5Ho lights (10000k)
    54x duel sponge filters
    1 x 100meter roll airline
    And to many plumbing fittings, lengths of conduit to count.

    so this is the room after all the walls and roof were built. Waterproofed the floor and added the lights.



    and tiled the floor.
