    Humidity Problems

    AC plans to have many more holding tanks at our new location and I suspect this to cause a HUGE humidity problem. Any thoughts on how I should tackle this?

    We have an air exchanger currently hooked up to draw air fromt he outside... would adding a 'T' fitting to draw air from the fishroom help? We also plan to purchase a large dehumidifier(I know this will help to a degree)... and finally have an exhaust from the tops of each setup to the outside world.

    Will this be enough or should I plan to include something else in our setup. Thanks in advance.

    If you do all of those mentioned things, it should be enough.

    What about large tanks (in the 300gallon range) that are built into walls?

    What things should be considered when attempting such a project?

    Toutouche already know this, but I've been dreaming of a 300gallon cube tank which would have 3 viewable sides, and one side built into the wall. This tank would be a room separator (actually dividing a large room into 2, and even have a door separating the 2 rooms at the other end of the aquarium. Not sure if you all picture this or not. Anyhow, This will be in the house I buy within the next couple of years.
    Anyhow, one side of the aquarium would be my living room, and the other my office.

    Something along these lines:



    But imagine a door at the end separating the 2 rooms, and imagine a taller tank.

    Ideally, this would be in a basement.

    How would one tackle humidity and heat issues, and yet remain insulated during the winter months?
