jasper5150 Posted February 17 Share Posted February 17 (edited) Ok. I have a 10 gallon that I picked up last year. Been sitting in my garage collecting dust. My main 20 gallon is over run by cherry shrimp. My plan is to move 50 or 60 over to the garage tank so they can keep breeding and help to support this tanks existence. The problem is my garage is not heated. It’s insulated but is still cold. My thought is to enclose it with rigid foam insulation and use a higher powered heater, 200W, to keep the temp where it needs to be (pictures included). Is this too much? As of today, doing a leak check of the tank. Added 8 gallons of water and marked the water line with removable ink. In the interim, created the enclosure of rigid foam and put together the sponge filter setup. Also have a large clump of Java moss to put in here once I start the cycle. I had an extra large ACO sponge filter laying around. Only thing is it’s big for the tank. So, I modified it to a shorter version. water and garage temp at 47 degrees. The main door doesn’t get opened often so hopefully the temp will go up. That’s about it for today. Will give a progress report tomorrow!
