Basic Rack Functions
Fish tank racks provide the infrastructure required by tanks, have useful features for researchers, and are now adapting to additional concerns like ergonomics and fish health. Water requirements are fulfilled by either a separate, centralized water system or in "free standing" racks, by their own water system. Aeration, a common option, can keep fish alive if water flow stops. Aeration-induced turbulence also keeps debris suspended so it can be removed by water exchange. Aeration can be supplied from a "free standing" rack, from a centralized facility, or by institutional air. Institutional air often contains oil and can therefore be problematic. Water disposal requires connecting to building plumbing via standard plumbing connections or a floor drain. Rack function can be impaired by inadequate water system water pressure, water flow capacity (pipe size), particulate load, and the appropriateness of the delivered water for the animals on the rack (pH, temperature, etc.). Rack water temperature is maintained either by the temperature of the rooms they are in, by heaters in the water system, or both.

Just a video on how I used ideas from DIY videos on Youtube and built my own multiple fish tank rack for African Cichlid breeding purposes. This was as cost effective as I think you can get. I spent less than $25 on materials. I got the basic idea from watching a DIY youtube video on how to make a s...
