Thanks for your response; the only thing I was worried about was all of the tanks in a smaller room; I just added the dimensions as you postedHello Andrewhoya and Welcome to Fish Lore.
I've never had any issues with my fish tanks causing mold. I would think that if one was required it would be needed if the tank was in the room or not. If you already have mold then it might be something you want to consider.
I'm sure you'll get some more responses soon.
I hope you enjoy the site!
ThanksTiny compared to yours, at an estimate, 8ft by 11ft
Interesting, thank you.Back when I lived with my parents I had a 10 gallon tank in my bedroom that was about 10x10 and had a window. The tank had a full hood on it. I also had a window mount air conditioner in the summer. My closet doors were floor to ceiling mirrored panels.
For the years I DIDN'T have the tank in my room, my room was fine. For the years I DID have the tank in my room with the AC, my mirrored closet doors would be loaded with condensation, kind of like when you step out of the shower and look in your bathroom mirror.
I don't think a dehumidifier will hurt you if you buy one. You're only out the cost of the unit plus electricity. If I ever get around to my 300-500 gallon tank I plan on getting a dehumidifier for that area. Not only will it help with the fish tank evaporation, but being the tank location is a room 1/2 buried in the ground it's a good idea to get one.
A dehumidifer will dry your skin though. During the cold/dry winter here my skin gets very itchy and irritated. Not until it warms up a bt does my skin get better.
