Andrew Puhr Posted September 29, 2022 Share Posted September 29, 2022 I am looking to reduce energy consumption in my unfinished basement fish room. I know there are various videos out there but I have some ideas and I am just looking for feedback. Total Aquariums: 2 - 30 Gallon Tanks, 3 - 40 Breeders, 2 - 75 Gallon Tanks, 1 - 80 Gallon Turtle Tank All tanks are set-up with hang on back filters, heaters, some have sponge filters, and the turtle tank has a sump. All tanks have either glass or greenhouse plastic. I was thinking of ways to reduce costs would be: 1) Convert all non-turtle tanks to sponge filters and then just increase my water change schedule to keep nitrates down. 2) Make sure lids are tight with no major gaps to limit heat loss 3) Change lighting schedule for non-planted tanks I thought about heating the room but its a large space and I don't really wanting to build a room to heat within the unfinished basement.
