 Hi  guys,
 Finally  I  completed  with  my  Dream  (Mini  fish  room  setup)   Cheering   Drinking  
 I  am  attaching  photos  of  my  set  up  step  by  step  and  some  explanation.
 
 
 First  step  was  planning  of  rack  to  house  four  36  x  15  x  18  (H)  tanks  (couldn't  go  for  big  tanks  because  of  space  as  I  have  done  this  in  my  balcony)
 After  discussing  most  of  the  IAH  members,  came  up  with  basic  plan  like  this:
 
 
 
 In  diagram,  You  can  see  rack  with  all  measurements  and  elecric  arrangement  for  the  same.  
 There  are  total  3  Points  for  each  tank  for  light,  filter  and  heater.  
 There  is  individual  switch  for  each  point  and  Timer  for  all  lights  which  I  purchased  from  Lohar  Chawl  with  the  help  Fakhuruddin(He  got  shop  there  and  he  is  very  helpful)  .
 All  electric  points  are  connected  to  invertor  except  Heater.
 
 After  doing  all  electric  arrangements  set  up  was  like  this
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 My  elecritian  did  the  good  job.  Clapping  
 
 
 Here  is  the  pic  of  rack  when  arrived
 
 
 
 After  looking  at  rack  I  realised   Shocked  that  I  missunderstood  the  rack  maker  and  which  resulted  I  got  1  Inch  less  in  hight.
 So  next  step  was  to  look  alternative  for  the  tank  cover  as  It  was  not  possible  to  go  for  piano  shed.
 So  I  decided  to  go  for  LFS  like  setup.  only  difference  was  In  my  setup  all  four  sides  of  the  rack  I  wanted  to  cover  to  avoid  fish  jumping  out  from  the  fish  tank.
 So  I  planned  to  do  with  plywood.
 
 After  carpenter  completed  his  job  My  rack  looked  like  this:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Now  next  was  to  look  substitute  for  Styrofoam  as  I  wanted  to  reduce  the  hight  of  tank.
 
 While  surfing  our  IAH  site  came  across  with  these  posts  by  Nawed
 
 
                                                 
Nawed  wrote  (View  Post):                
If  you've  ever  been  to  kurla  fish  market  then  quite  close  to  it  is  a  rubber/foam  sheet  wholesale  market  (the  kinda  stuff  they  use  to  make  chappals  and  floaters)  i  bought  5  sheets  and  use  them  as  a  base  for  my  aquairums...  tough+durable+CHEAP!                

 
 
                                                 
Nawed  wrote  (View  Post):                
Search  for  this  on  maps.google.com
 
 Thakkar  Bapa  Colony  Rd,  patelwadi.kurla,  Mumbai,  Maharashtra,  India
 
 It's  barely  a  km  or  so  from  the  Kurla  Fish  market,  and  it  runs  parallel  to  the  eastern  express  highway.
 
 The  entire  road  is  a  big  wholesale  market  for  rubber  products,  just  ask  anyone  and  they  will  guide  you  to  shops  selling  these  sheets.                

 
 I  decided  to  go  for  it,  I  know  it  didn't  affect  much  but  every  inch  counts  you  know.
 
 After  going  above  mentioned  address,  personally  looking  at  the  sheets  and  also  after  taking  opinion  from  KURLA  LFS  guys,  I  decided  to  go  for  10  MM  thick  sheet.
 Here  are  the  pics  of  sheets:
 
 
 
 
 
 Closer  look  for  thickness:
 
 
 
 
 
 And  after  that  got  Power  Filter,  Heater,  Air  Pump  and  Corner  Sponge  filter  from  Kurla  Wholesale  Market  for  each  tank.
 
 
 After  completing  all  set  up,  now  it  looks  like  this,  will  post  pic  of  each  tank  after  I  get  desired  FH  for  my  tank.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Here  I  am  posting  some  links  for  the  topis  for  your  reference  which  I  have  posted  to  get  help  from  IAH  members  to  get  my  dream  complete.
 Thank  you  very  much  to  all  of  those  who  replied  and  helped  me  with  their  posts.
 
 
 1>  Substitute  for  styrofoam
 
 
 2>  Lighting  
 
 
 3>  Timer
 
 
 
 
 Kindly  give  your  comments  and  suggestions.
 
 Thanks  and  Regards,
