    I thought about that also but we are prepared to deal with the humidity. I refuse to have a moldy stinky store.
    We are also installing drains behind the tanks and all water changes will be done by turning valves - no buckets

    If you can see in the pics along the wall- The ceiling has a header all the way down that side. That is where the back of the tanks will be. We are removing the carpet under and behind the tanksand installing drains. We are also installing some hvac ventilation to refresh the air behind the displays. The store ( in a strip mall) is actually laid out perfect for a store!
